Learning to be one.

“That they may all be one, just as you, Father, are in me, and I in you, that they also may be in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me.” John 17:21, ESV

The day my husband and I became married, we became one flesh. Everything I owned became his, and everything he owned became mine. We decided early on that we wouldn’t take separate vacations, have separate bank accounts or even have separate friends. We understood God’s heart behind marriage is that the two come together to operate as one.

Just as marriage is about learning how to become one with your spouse, entering into a covenant relationship with God is about learning how to become one with Him. Not only does your body, soul, and spirit belong to Him, but your time, your talents, and your treasures also. Jesus prayed that we may be one as He and the Father are one. Whenever you have a married couple that treat everything as though they are living two separate lives, it hinders the oneness God seeks to create within them.

In our relationship with God, the thing we must understand is that God has our best in mind. He’s not trying to get something from you, but trying to get something to you. Just as in any relationship, it requires trust in order for your relationship with God to work. You can trust Him with your life. You can trust Him with your heart. You can trust Him with your talents. You can trust Him with your treasures. The more you trust Him, the more successful you will be.

Prayer: Father God, I thank you for your rich words to me. Thank you for choosing to be in covenant relationship with me. You brought me out of a sinful life and placed me in a right relationship with you. I want to operate as one with you. No more trying to do things on my own. No more trying to live a separate life from you. Everything I have, I give it to you. Help me trust you with my life. Help me trust you with my heart. Help me trust you with my talents. Help me trust you with my treasures. You have my best interest at heart and I thank you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Awesome word. I’m still single but believing the Lord for a husband. You are so right. I’ve seen many marriage fell because they are working against each other.

  2. wow!! what a word. l believe that when people are of one mind irrespective of their agenda, they achieve results. The story of the Tower of Babel is a case study. Lord l know you know my going in n my coming out.My mindset n everything about me. Please lead me on. Help me to follow your leadings n to be in union with your plans for my life. As Jesus said ” l and my father are one” may we as members of your body be one.May our oness be made complete in you. Amen.

  3. These messages I receive everyday are truly amazing. I am so thankful and grateful for each one everyday. I am single and seeking the Lord if it be His will for me to be married. Thanks again for all the wise words of knowledge.

  4. You are my strength Lord without you I am nothing so continue to have your way in my life for your honor and for your gloty. My eyes are on you and my hope is in you.

  5. When you trust God with your life and surrender your own will to His will. God’s works His own will in your favor. When , eleven years ago, I surrender and relinquished my own way and will to God’s way and will for me, I now know and realized that was the move I had made for my life. Like the word says :
    “Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass.- Rest in the Lord and wait patiently for Him. (Psalm 37:5,6,7a)

  6. Gm DOTK, Wow,as I’m about to embark on new territory and tread on new grounds,I want to trust my Father with all things ,including my gifts and talents that I may show good Stewardship in everything that the Lord in trusted me with! I have really decided and prayed that I will not try to do things on my own but will give room for the power of God and his Holy spirit to lead and guide me in the ways that I should go and not could go. Father I set you before me in this day,lead and guide me in all that I do and say,help me to forever seek your face and do things your way. Let me operate in onky courage !In your precious son Jesus Christ name that I pray!!!Amen!

  7. Daddy, I only have tears to shed because I am heavy with this burden I am still carrying. I am not giving up on it! I am wrestling like Jacob for it! I won’t let go until You bless me, LORD!! Not in my power, but in Yours, Jesus. I don’t care what it looks like, I am walking in the fire, with Faith by my side! Hallelujah!! I feel a hallelujah forming in my gut! What? That could not be! Oh, glory, glory, glory, I better believe it! I receive it in radiant glory, for You are my mighty Healer and Restorer!! No, not me! No denying spirit in me in the Name of Jesus! I receive it! I believe in the resurrecting power of Your Name!!! I receive the redemption of the Lord!!! You are my Salvation, Jesus!! No other Name is!!! Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, Jesus!!! Trumpet sounds in my soul!!! Blow! Blow! Blow! Blow! Blow! Blow! Blow! Blow the trumpet in his ear!!! Blow the trumpet around the walls of Jericho!!! He falls down under the glory of the Lord! He hits the big wall! It’s Jesus!!!! Hallelujah!!!! Stand up for me, mighty Jesus!!! Your love is relentless!!! The darkness must repent!!! The darkness must run to the pit!!! The darkness lost it, the battle for his soul!!! He let go and let God!!! God did it!!! God can do anything!!! I stand and wait to see what I believe in faith!!! You are my faith, sweet Jesus! Thank You, Emmanuel, for every mustard seed of faith You have planted in love!!! The sickness bleeds away and the strongholds that were tied in evil melt away! The refining fire burns with love and the Lord’s burning eyes of fire burn into my soul! I let go, Jesus! You’ve got this! I don’t have to be afraid! You have laid the path before me and it is straight! No crooked path that way! You are the Way! You are, Jesus! You breathe life into me and I am alive! I rise from the ashes in beautiful glorious victory! Who do they see? Jesus, it is only You! You are the Life, and there is only death without You! Now I blow the breath of life on those who enter my embrace! It is You that they taste when they breathe in! The sweet taste of unconditional love in the face of sin! It is You, Jesus, that erases sin! It is You, the Truth, that erases the lies from our mind! It is You, Jesus! It is You!!! Only You!!! Jesus, I am asking You to make me who You have called me to be, because I am completely in unfamiliar territory! I meant what I said, You shall see me through! Jesus breakthrough! I ain’t staying in this pit of fear no longer!!! I am out of here!!! In the Name of Jesus, I am up and I am standing! I am dropping the rest of this wretched fear here! I am here at Your throne! I am here at Your throne, Jesus! I have no time to waste. I need You to continue lining me up! My uneven sides began to glide smoothly against the world! They realize this must be the Lord! Hallelujah!!! What is that Name??? Jesus! Jesus!! Jesus!!! Jesus!!!! Jesus!!!!! Jesus!!!!!! Jesus!!!!!!!
    I am running in the wind with You, Lord! Oh, Lord, this is so beautiful! The glory is flying by us, in radiant colors of joy and hope! I let go of the rope!! Holy Spirit, thank You!!! Oh, my Lord, I left the noose behind! I am so happy to be tied to You!!! I am no longer blind!! I understand the rhyme!! My heart chimes in glorious rhythm, and I can’t hit rewind!!! The scroll rolls on and I am wandering in the clouds, where I saw You there! I saw You there so along ago in a dream! I was afraid I was not ready! Again and again, I dreamed it! I feared it! I relented it, yet, searched not for the heart that rode on those clouds in my dream!!! You are the Lord of my life, Jesus. There is none other! There never could be! Even if I turned away now, I would be snatched right back by the sovereign still, small voice saying, “No, My beloved!” I know Your voice now, and I follow it! The verse on the mirror reads true! I am Your sheep and I listen to Your voice! You know me, and I follow You! You give me eternal life, and I shall never perish! No one will snatch me out of Your hand! (John 10: 27-28) I follow You because I know Your voice!! (John 10:4)
    The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song! (Ps. 28: 7) Hallelujah!!!

    If it were for but a moment,
    that I could freely receive,
    without holding back in fear,
    all that You have for me,
    I would freely receive it,
    and not fear taking back
    what You, Yourself plant!
    I am in the moment!
    You are near to me!
    My broken heart is here!
    My crushed spirit is saved
    by the mighty hand
    defending me!!!
    I am walking in the shadow
    of the Most High!
    I hide in the Presence of the Almighty!
    The darkness can’t find me,
    because the shadow I am in, is full of Light!
    The cold, dark night fades away, and the snuggly warm, radiantly glorious day,
    shows up in my life and I am made new in Him!
    I am a new creation!
    My mind is renewed and I am shiny on the inside now!
    The glory radiates from the inside now!
    Lord, I am wowed!!
    All I can do is bow and declare that You are Lord!
    Help me more, for You are my final destination!
    This new creation is on fire for You!
    You set that refining fire down in me, just like I asked You to!!!
    Oh, You keep Your promises!!!
    It doesn’t matter if we think we can handle it!!!
    If we are crushed in spirit, Your Word says You will save us!
    So, I am saved, in the Name of Jesus!! My Salvation’s Name is Jesus!!! Together we pray! He is my witness! He never fails me! He never forsakes or abandons me!!! He never forgets about me or disregards me!!! He never wants anything else, but what’s best for me!!! Glory, glory, glory!!! What is this feeling inside of me? It is so peaceful!!! Jesus, Prince of Peace, lay it on me!!! Love me, love me, love me!!!! I give up!!! I can’t win with You!!! You love through the hardest exteriors!!! No one moves me like You!!! No ome has compassion like You do!!! No one is as tender and gentle as You! No one can compare to You! No one can steal You away from me! No one is more important to You, such that You would abandon me for them!!! You don’t have to abandon any of us!!! Your love is sovereign!!! It is everywhere!!! It is all powerful!!! It is all knowing!!! That’s why You can heal and restore even the most broken!!! Because You take the time to know us so well!!! You took the time to make us, and You just want to spend time with us!!! I really, really, really want to spend more time with You. I am walking in faith now!!! I am covered in a cloud of vengence before me!!! I don’t see, but I know You are on the battlegrounds before me, before I even get there!
    I see a flash of glory!!! Something blew up!!! Its a mirage in the cloud of glory, mixed with vengence for the glory of the Lord!!! The Lord shall take back what is His!!!! Hallelujah!!!! I’ll stand up for that promise!!! I claim it!!! I receive it, because I surely believe it!!! You are the wrecking ball, and You come in and bust up the walls of Jericho, with a loud thundering of Your voice, as a trumpet sounds, in triumph!!! I feel it literally in me!!! Glory, glory, glory!!! My body shakes!!! The foindation of the world quakes, and the sleepers awake!!! Oh, glory, glroy, glory!! What a marvelous story!!! Oh, the romance is captivating!!! I am taken captive unto the solitude of my Lord’s throne room!!! It is only You!!! It is only You, sweet Jesus!!! This love has taken my breath away!!! My insides sing unto Your glory!!! I am healed and restored unto completion!!! I receive this!!! I am healed and restored from the inside out!!! I am stepping out into the glorious light!!! I am walking in a walk of faith that defies all logic!!! I don’t care about the world’s logic!!! It never helped me!!! I have been called crazy, and cried in my own shame! Now You say, “Crazy, you are not! Don’t believe the world’s lies. I look at You, through the eyes that made you. So Who knows the Truth?”
    It is You, Daddy! You know the Truth! I am an heir to the Truth! I want to be crowned in truth! I have been lost in lies all of my life, and the fear kept me hidden! But we left that fear behind, now I want to be blind to the lies!!! May I only see Truth in my eyes! May my mind only hear Truth, and slander the lies before me!!! No lies in the Name of Jesus!! My mind is clear, concise, and consecrated unto the Lord!! There is no condemnation in those who are in Christ Jesus!!! Jesus, I am in You, and You are in me!!! That equals no condemnation for me!!! Glory, glory, glory!!! You reveal even more to me!!! This is no longer a secret to keep!!! I want to shout it upon the mountaintop!!! Look, look, look, Who saved me!!!! It was only He, King Jesus!!!! I want to rock Your world now, my Lord!!!! God, make the oppression stand down in Your Holy Name!!! I am praying harder!!! I saw a gap in the armor of the enemy!!! I am shooting the arrow of love beneath it!!! I pray that it hits and doesn’t miss!!! God, make it hit!!! Help me aim and hit where You say!!! An arrow of love to reverse the curse!!! No love potion number 9, just a sovereign rhyme!!! It is almost time, You say. Okay, ready me completely. I shall receive all that You have to give to me!!! I know You will never give up on me!!! I know it, because I have lived it!!! I know it, because You have sown it into my being!!! I love You so much, my Beloved!!! There is no one else that can touch me like You do. You sow in the love, and I just reep it with a yielding heart. Nothing special, I have done, but receive Your love!!! You are the Special One, Jesus!!! I was meant to be loved by You, and You were always meant to be loved by me!!! So, glory to God, in Your power and might, I shall catch up and surpass my former years of neglect of my Lord’s purpose and glory!!! I shall get it slapped upon me!!! Lord, brace me!!! Gird my loins up for me, because I am just weak, and I just intend to be a vessel for You to leak Your sovereign love upon the world through the cracks in me that bleed Your compassion freely!!! My scars are treasures for the Lord!!! My turmoil is turned into anointing oil!!! I shall burn the oil into the night!!! Take me there, if it is Your Will!!! I shall stand still because the Lord will fight for me, and I shall hold my peace and remain at rest! (Exodus 14: 14) This isn’t my test!!! Protect me from the arrows of the enemy, as they fly at me in the terrors of the night!!! There it went, right by my face, my hair blew back and the tears upon my face were erased, yet, no harm came to me!!! I shall come out unscathed!!! Noname shall rise above His Name!!! My hope is in Jesus!!! My hope is always in You, Jesus!!! You are my hope!!! You are my smile through the tears!!! You are the Redeemer of all lost years!!! You are the mighty feet that stomp on the fears that taunted me all of my life!!! They are smite!!! My fears are smite in the cold, dark night!!! I release a sigh that causes an avalanche of white snow upon the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit!!! Stay where You are!!! Jesus is near!!! If You are brokenhearted then Jesus is near!!!! (Ps. 34: 18) If You are crushed in spirit, then He is here to save you!!! Just stick your hand up!!! Lift it up from beneath the heavy laden snow upon your soul!!!! Just one hand!!! Lift it!!! He sees it!!! Lift it!!! Say, “Jesus, pull me up!!!” Say it!!!! Say it, “Jesus, pull me up!!!!” Shout it!!! Hallelujah!!! Say, “I’m up, Jesus!!! Thank You!!! Now what???” Say it!!!! He is waiting!!! He is listening!!! He is wanting to lift you up and warm you up!!! Open up your heart to the King of kings and the Lord of lords!!!! He is writing His love story on your heart!!! Read Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John!!! His love story is the best romance there ever was!!!! This Jesus, He will sweep you off your feet, and you will not be able to fail Him!!! It is His power that teaches us to love Him!!! We can all love Him so much more!!! Let’s open that door!!! I open the door to a bigger heart of love for You, my Beloved!!! I am so caught up and the Light weaves its glorious strands of unconditional love, compassion, and anointing empowerment upon me!!! I am the vessel!!! You are the Potter!!! Glory to God in the highest!!! His glory is poured upon me!!!! I am so undeserving, yet, You remember me as Your own!!! You have chosen me and I am freely receiving and yielding unto Your heart, my Lord!!! I am made more and stronger once more!!! I am built up in Your glory, and I steep in the holiness here!!! Soke it in, oh my soul!!! Soke in the Presence of the Lord!!! Let it carry me forth in reckless abandonment in love for the Lord!!! My wealth is in You!!! Jesus, You are all of my wealth!!!

I shall be available and a part of the broken, if that is what You have called me to. I shall be a healer in Your Name and power for the broken!!! Though I was brokenhearted, I am healed and restored!!! Though I was crushed in spirit, I am saved by the great Salvation!!! Jesus, do You want me to be like You in this? I shall be near to the brokenhearted and save the crushed in spirit in and through Your power, if this is what You have called me to, and my heart says you do!!! I am who You say I am!

I locked my life and heart away unto the Lord, and He shall open the door to my purposeful destiny!!! For He knows the plans He has for me!!! Plans for hope and a future! Plans for welfare, and not evil!!! I have called upon You, prayed to You, and You have heard me! I have sought You, and found You, because I have sought You with all of my heart!

You weave them into my heart, and I need You to lift them all up in Your glory! No, not my power can do this, but Your power can relentlessly love the hell right out of a heart like mine! Cover my sisters in Your blood, Jesus– writers, readers, brokenhearted, crushed in spirit, weary and heavily laden, questioning and wondering, lost and wandering, earnestly seeking, and freely receiving with a yielded heart, mind, body, and soul!!! In Your enormous blanket of love, warm them up from the inside out, and their hearts shall thaw and be wowed!!! God, bless all of my sisters here, and brothers who read too!!! May Your Spirit descend upon them in love and truth!! I am finished with this test. I passed it with flying colors, because I was sailing in the rainbow of the Keeper of all of His promises!

I am radiant in glory with my Lord and Savior!!! The colors of the rainbow become radiant, glorious, pure light!!! The glory of the Lord lights up the cold, dark night, and we look and see You, Jesus, with Your outstretched hand!!! The sovereign hand is beckoning you to Him!!! We live by believing, and not by seeing!!! I believe in the resurrecting power of Jesus! I believe You are my Redeemer! I believe the power of redemption is here and now! I receive it freely! I am taking mine and running with it, Lord!!! I shall run the race of endurance in Your resurrecting power in the Name of Jesus. Thank You, Daddy, for everything! You ARE my Everything!

      1. Catherine, I don’t know when you will get this. I pray that you will get it soon. I pray that you will get to the hospital you need to get to, or are already there. Couldn’t sleep. Heavy emotions here. Have my own reasons, yet, I felt pulled to my phone. Been having problems with the charge on my phone. Doesn’t charge unless its off. Then it dies quickly, so I haven’t checked much today since I posted. First, do NOT give up. No matter what your weary heart and mind might lead you to believe, you are still held in the sovereign hand of God. Before I pray for you, I want to give you my email. I left it for you another time or two, but I am not sure if you got it. Now that I see you are having trouble with your cell time, I would like to offer it again, in case you didn’t get it. If you don’t feel comfortable with that, that’s okay. Don’t let it worry you. I just really, really feel drawn to you. I have for quite some time. So, I just really want to be a friend to you and a source of support. My email is cricketmkamyszek@gmail.com. I understand about holding people up til you’re six feet under. But glory, hallelujah!!! Jesus will hold YOU up in the Name of Jesus!!! Holy Spirit, breathe Your breath on me!!! I need to bleed these wounds dry that cry out into the night for Your embrace!!! I taste the loss. It is bittersweet. I can’t go on til You hold me tight! The tears are building up. I am no longer a slave to the rage in the Name of Jesus!!! I can cry about this. I need Your healing and restoration in this unspoken area in my heart, Lord Jesus. Hallelujah! Jesus breakthrough! God, I am trying to go there. Clear the air. Clear the despair from my lungs!!! Cough up the sputum of disgust and regret!!! Touch Catherine’s heart, my Lord. Get her to a hospital, Lord, yes, but should You do even more than that? I pray that You would for my dear friend Catherine. God, she just walked out a door that it sounds like she needed to. So, what is that You will do for my sister, Catherine! Make a way in the wilderness!!! Make the crooked way straight!!! Dance upon the clouds of rain blessings upon Catherine’s head!!! Let Your mercy pour out! Help me now! I can’t break clear! I am struggling to get the words to come near! Rebuke the oppression for me, Jesus!!! Tell it to sleep. I need a jumpstart. My heart is hurting. I am sad that I won’t see my baby soon, as I know I should be. I didn’t really expect these feelings. Please help me with them, my Lord. You know all of my deepest pains. Hold me close and wipe away my tears, so that I am strong for my dear Catherine. I am stronger than ever before, because You are the strength in me, Jesus. I am not strong on my own! I am a mess all alone! But You clear the way for me to get through the rubble everywhere. I can only see the wreckage of life’s mistakes. But these are kicked away by the sovereign feet leading the way, and nothing is as it seems! Just dream a little dream of happenstance and take a chance at a new dance with Me! I am in the dream! I am beckoning you unto Me! I am the daydream that never quits! I am the relentless still, small voice that whispers Truth unto the nonsense. The chaotic mumble rumbles along, but Catherine’s mind is made strong!!! Clarity, come near in the Name of Jesus!!! Make Catherine’s mind sound in the Name of Jesus!!! Hallelujah!!!

Free her from the strongholds that hold her tight and fight for her in the cold, dark night!!! The warm day is coming, Catherine!!! Hold onto Him!!! Jesus, get Catherine to the medical care she needs! Please get her home after that, my Lord!!! You are always more than all of our destitute circumstances.

Shall Your Kingdom come and Your will be done in Catherine’s heart, soul, life, and mind!!! God bless Catherine’s mind! Make it sound and keep her thoughts steadied on You, my Beloved! I know You won’t give up on Catherine, but will You please assure her of that, Lovely Jesus! Blessed assurance unto a badly broken and bruised heart, mind, body, and soul in the Name of Jesus! Claim it!!! It is yours, my sister! Jesus is singing a love song unto your heart. Come home, My beloved, come home to My heart, sweet Catherine! I have all the peace you need.
