Good morning, Family.

Well, the Lord was in an uncommonly humorous mood tonight. And I guess He had to be, because He's dealing with me being extremely tired. I think I came into prayer a zombie and I don't even know exactly why - allergies or something. I definitely was not altogether here, as I came into prayer. In fact, I fell asleep a couple of times. I wasn't resting in the Glory of the Lord, I mean, I flat out fell asleep...

So, He had some suggestions for me on how to fix that, which I've been kinda been waiting for...

I'll just go ahead and share this dialogue with you, 'cause He's so cute...He was so sweet with me. And let me preface this by saying that I spent a good hour and a half in worship, and it was just as flat as a pancake. I couldn't connect with Him, I couldn't pray the way I wanted to - it's like all the passion was just GONE. That can be a suffering, too, guys. Sometimes the Lord allows that to happen, and then someone else has a really special prayer time. Kind of like an offering, a fast offering for another soul. The Lord does that, too, but tonight I think it was just my fault and I came into prayer and worship, but never really... He connected with me several times, but I couldn't stay connected. I kept drifting off...

So, I finally gave up on trying to really get into some sweet worship with Him and I came to my computer and said, Here I am Lord.

He answered me, "Here I am, too."


"You don't believe Me."

Please, can I see You, Jesus?

"Close your eyes."

And when I closed my eyes, I mean, we were nose to nose. I mean, if I were any closer... how could I BE any closer...'oh ye of little faith.'

Lord, what is the matter with me? I wanted to worship tonight and it was so flat.

He said, "Make better use of your time."

What does that mean?

"Get here sooner."


"No really, I do mean that. Try getting here much sooner, like 10:00."

(It's 3:31 right now...) OK

"That will help, Beloved. You are tired, but this is the time of the day when the sap is going down not rising up."

So, I'm a sap??

"Did I say that?"


"Yes, you're a sap, for Me."


"You say OK a LOT."

I agree with You a LOT.

"Good answer. Very diplomatic, slightly flattering and absolutely TRUE!"

You're making me laugh, Lord.

"Oh that's good! I was afraid you were going to fall over dead, you were so excited about us being together tonight."

Oh, Lord, You're so kind and gentle and so much fun to be with! Thank You so much for cheering me up.

"Well, in truth, I want My Bride to know what she's in for when she gets here to Heaven. I am fun to be with, you know."

You can say that again!

"I am fun to be with, you know."

Oh, thank You so much for taking the time, Lord, to bring me back to life. What would you like to talk about tonight?

And He answered me, "Respect."

"I want My Brides to respect all men and women, regardless of age, race, education, station in life. I want souls to recognize Me by My respect for others. This is something you can do for Me. Lack of respect has led to terrible downgrading and a sense of loss and uselessness.

"It is even assumed that I don't respect the rights of every man, woman and child. It is not understood that equipping you with free will was a tremendous sacrifice on My part, because I wanted you to choose Me out of love, freely, not like a slave who has no choice.

"Respect is a mark of recognition that you are 'special' - and you all are indeed special to Me. When people disrespect you they are saying, 'Your life doesn't matter, you are disposable.' This has a tragic impact on humanity, it kills the will and the desire to dream. Nothing could be further from the truth. I love each and every soul with not only respect but I have dreams for them and a future that is rewarding. Yet, because authority has been wielded unjustly, they equate Me with authority, which is often callous and dismissive of an individual's rights.

"I want My Christians to treat people with uncommon respect, restore to them their sense of value and worth. Restore to them their sense of importance in the world. Reinstate them and show them that they are valuable. This is one thing that is lacking so seriously in human relations that you will be surprised at how it turns people 180 degrees around.


"Instead of kicking the dirt and walking away shuffling uselessly, it will restore hope and put a spring in their step that belies new hope, enthusiasm about who they are and who they can become.

"I have wonderful plans for every man woman and child on this Earth. Wonderful plans, but so many assume that I am dull and boring, that I'm all about rules and regulations, all about being quiet and pious, all about dark and restricting. Yet you know that is absolutely untrue. Heaven is a place of glorious light, a place of purpose and creativity, a place where joy makes every foot dance, every heart leap and feel deeply necessary to My plans.

"Yes, that is what I want to convey. You are important to Me. I have plans for you, beautiful plans, things you will love, not dark and restrictive but filled with brightness and new hope. When you show respect to others you bring them into My dimension. You are declaring their beauty, and their reason for being. You are saying, "To God, you are very important." Not just a castaway or byproduct of your culture, but truly a diamond in the raw.

"You are an individual, different, there is none like you - and this is not flattery, this is Truth. And because you are unique, the plans I have for you are unique and especially fitted to the nature I created in you.

"Separating people from the crowd, taking away the numbers assigned to them and acknowledging their unique identity. The beauty of who they are is even a mystery to them, but by showing uncommon respect you say 'There is something special about you; hidden greatness, something beautiful inside.' In essence, you are affirming Me in My Creation and that each one I create has intrinsic beauty that is waiting to be brought to the surface.

"This goes so much against the grain of society and human relations that it will stop a soul in its tracks and make them wonder, 'This person is different... What is it about them that has touched me?' And that's when they find out: God is living in you, you are His ambassador and to Him this soul is worth every pain of Calvary, every lash of the whip, every mocking, every blow of the hammer. At what a great price they have been purchased. Yes, that is the true worth of every man, woman and child - nothing less than My passion.

"So, when you show respect you declare this in a subtle and hidden way, but it reaches the soul and touches them. They feel the difference in you from others, they feel Me. And in recognizing Me, half the battle is won. I am not who they thought I was. NO, I am the one who created them fearfully and wonderfully made, unlike any other, unique and worth dying on the cross for.

"This is what I want you to convey in your relations with others. Respect. Uncommon respect. That causes others to stop and ask themselves, 'What is so different about them?' And when you get their attention, that is half the battle, they aren't in a defensive posture anymore, rather they are curious and want to know your secret.

"I bless you, My Children, with a new grace: uncommon respect and My fragrance to touch hurting souls and bring them here to Me."
