Thanks Lord, & Mom.

I love how the Lord gives us what we need before we even know we need it.

Yesterday, I was all in a tizzy over Elias' allergies and a new case of thrush that he had developed. I called my mom, all in a mess, upset over being a working mom vs. desperately wanting to care for my son myself.

Today the Lord had a whole new battle, another war almost, in store for us - but I was prepared in a way I couldn't comprehend. I really feel like the Lord helped me claim that peace because of the prayer my mom prayed for me yesterday. She also emailed it to me then and I sat at work for a few minutes, just reading and rereading it - letting God's words of truth and life soak in.

I'm posting it here for you to enjoy and hopefully it helps you choose peace in your life. More Connolly family updates to come....

Jessi, I speak to your spirit in the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
Listen with your spirit to the Word of God for you.
Isaiah 26:3-4: “You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord, is the Rock eternal.”

The word trust is very significant in the Old Testament. It is not an act of your will, where you choose to risk something, but it is a profound emotional confidence, in which you are completely expecting things to be right. It is like the trust that you felt in the womb as you listened to your mother’s heart beat. You heard the thumping on a regular basis, your body vibrated with a rushing sound of blood as her heart pumped. You trusted in your mother’s heart – for it continued to beat minute after minute, day after day, and you had complete emotional confidence in it. That is what your Father wants you to experience with Him. He wants you to experience so much of his faithfulness that you are emotionally at peace in Him.
There is a time and a place for risking on God as an act of faith, even when your emotions don’t agree, but it is far greater, a more wonderful special gift for you, to trust and be truly at peace with what your Father is going to do and what He has called you to do. It is a more wonderful gift for your soul to be at perfect peace, not just your will to be doing what is right.
So Jessi, since this is God’s will, and since this is your birthright, I bless you with having
perfect peace that comes from trusting in the Lord. I bless you with experiencing your Father’s faithfulness, His faithful love toward you, even when others do not love you or do not consider you lovely. I bless you with experiencing His love, for your emotions to be aware, to know, to savor, to feel, to relish the love that your Father expresses toward you. I bless you with experiencing that so often that you can never doubt your Father’s love.
I bless you with experiencing your Father’s faithfulness in providing for you. Your needs change and your provisions will come from many different sources. I bless you with seeing your Father provide again and again so that you can have complete, total, emotional confidence that He will provide your daily bread.
I bless you with having perfect peace about your Father’s communication with you. He will speak at times through His Word very clearly to you, very personally to you. At times He will be silent, when even His Word will seem closed and dry, and I bless you with perfect confidence and perfect peace during the silences of god, as you stand on the things He said to you in the past. I bless you with no anxiety in the present because God has spoken so richly in the past. I bless you with the surety of knowing that He will speak again at the right time and the right place, that you will hear clearly what you need to hear at the right time to make the right decisions.
I bless you JESSI with feeling perfect peace over the timing of God in all things. I bless you with experiencing your Father’s supernatural timing time after time, for you to savor deep in your spirit His faithfulness in being, providing, arriving, communicating, changing things in exactly the right time. I bless you with having your mind steadfast on the memories of God’s past faithfulness, so that when you come up against what appears to be a crisis situation where He has not moved yet, you will have perfect peace that He will move at exactly the right time because you have experienced His timely faithfulness.
I bless you with seeing where your Father has protected you. I bless you with perfect peace because you trust in your Father’s protection of you. I bless you with experiencing His protection in the danger that comes near you but does not touch you. I bless you with first-hand knowledge of your Father’s infinite creativity in rescuing you from harm. I bless you having your eyes open, with seeing circumstances and situations where the enemy set a trap that you didn’t see, and your Father in his infinite wisdom and power removed the trap before you were aware of it. I bless you with growing experiences of His protecting your body, your soul, your spirit and the call upon your life. I bless you with seeing so much of his protection that you will trust Him as implicitly as you trusted your mother’s heartbeat.
I bless you, Jessi, with having a mind that is set on Christ, who offers this peace. I bless you in the name of Jesus of Nazareth.
