Try Try Again


This was a VERY helpful message. The other day in my morning prayers when I was feeling beaten down both by my own sins and the general overwhelming feeling of a busy day to come; I heard this:
“If at first you don’t succeed,
Try, try again!
‘‘Tis a lesson you should heed:
Try, try again.
Then your courage will appear
If you should just persevere-
You will conquer.
Never fear!
Try, try again.

The Silent Suffering of Our God


“He (God) does hurt greatly.   I found out some years ago after laughing at a reenactment on a TV documentary of David and Goliath.. where David killed Goliath with a stone/slingshot.  The actor who portrayed Goliath looked silly as he fell to the ground, and I jeered and laughed at him..  When suddenly the Holy Spirit convicted me and I heard Him speak to me (without words)   He said, “you find this funny .. the death of this man and enemy of Israel?   I find it NOT funny.. I wanted that he would have opened his heart to me.. his Creator., as well as his people, but he continued to harden his heart., to the point that I had no choice but to end his life .. or he would have proceeded to end the life of my people, Isreal .   It did not please me to end his life”.

Wow, was I ever convicted after hearing that and I never thought the same again of the Lord’s enemies..   We (even we Christians) truly don’t think the way our God thinks.

Let Me Take You To My Father

Jesus- King in Exile

I put the picture (above) on in full stance – and was contemplating..”what” could He be thinking?  And then this…what is in my heart…as if He was (and is) speaking as I look at this picture…to His Father in Heaven, while being on earth? Or even now.  Here goes:

Jesus to His Father:   “What more can I do Father? I have given My very life’s Blood for them to pay the price of their Redemption…
Why can’t souls see how much I love them!  What more could I do, yet I would die again for each one if that is what it would take to save them! How can they ever understand such love….A love they too, must immolate and imitate to be My followers.  Ready to give their very life for their brothers.  To love as I have loved –  and do love still.

How I still pray…

“I Am In Charge”♥

Dear ones +

It is amazing how when you are not expecting anything, there Is God…that is what happened when I was looking through the selections of videos I have from You Tube – and I just had tears as I felt The Father so close..and I felt His love so sweet..and that is for us all.  It is not often this happens +

I have not had a father or mother since I am 10 – and only saw my father twice in my life after my mom passed away when I was 10… at the age of 13 I lived with him, my sister and his second wife (one of 4) for 6 months only and then lived with my mother’s sister till 20 when I was married.  And my father again when I was 28 and went to Tx. for my grandmothers passing.
So I am not, well….too much up on what ‘is a daughter,” and God understands that, but now and then He homes in on me to let me know…I AM a daughter, and He is a very loving trustworthy father I can love and be at peace in that relationship.  I feel others too, have a problem with a father image.  I know I do.  There was so much dysfunction in my life up to 10 and even after that in that relationship….
But all of us in some way know growing up is not easy – Faith in Jesus makes us get through, at least for me I know.   He reminds me in my very worst times, crying and feeling I “just can’t go on”.  I never ceased to believe in Him…I did not turn my back..He did not let go of His embrace (for us all) of me and I never walked away….thatttt is what got me through all the sorrows and trials of my life.  And we can in some way all relate.  So I just wanted to share this.   When I had tears He just said one thing to me…so clear in His Voice in my heart… and this is for all.    “Pat, I am in charge.”
So that gave me peace, that no matter what happens…He is in charge, He knows, and He has this and He has us…ones so faithful to His love and will…(at least He sees we try…even with imperfections.)

I Need Thee Every Hour..



“I had read how one was given the advice to check in with the Lord Jesus each hour and ask His advice on ‘how’ they were doing – so I asked Him this am at 11:09 – and the following went through me..:

To Jesus:  “My Love, I want You to be pleased with me each hour – but I know how faulty I am -“
Jesus:  “Yes, beloved – ask Me each hour if you are giving Me joy – simply without anxiety – you are willing to listen to Me – I see this – you want to do what is right to please Me – if this is your attitude then is this not what I see?  You are always with Me;  that is your desire.   I see this  so be at peace and be cheerful in serving Me.  Please Me, be kind, and know I never leave you.  (for us all!)
Patricia… would or could we apart from each other, after all we’ve shared?  How beloved?   I love you!
To Jesus:  Oh Beloved Jesus – “The pain today – it seems to get worse lately (my back and knees) But I have offered all to You in my morning offering { Oh Jesus, I unite all my actions to Your Heartbeats to do the will of the Father in Heaven on earth, especially for conversions– (This is what I say each day to Him.)}
Jesus:  “Again ,beloved , have you given Me the day? Have you purposefully left Me or not wanted to do My will-  just ask yourself.  Remember what I said in He and i ?  “If I can put up with you, can you put up with you?  Be of good heart – I see your efforts even in your discomforts and I collect all.   Nothing escapes Me. Keep going, I am with you always.  I love you.”    {for all!}

“Rise Above- Love!”

I drifted back to sleep (this was around 5:00 am)   and waking back up again, I heard our Lord again say to me, “Have Your way with Me, this Day”    and I knew this is what He wanted me to pray.. that He would have His way with Me, and when He said, “this Day”, He meant not only “day” as in this day (Sunday) but also the “day” of my life that He has allotted me.

Jesus- King in Exile


Early this morning before awaking, I heard our Lord speak deep within my heart.    I know it was Him because even though He was using my own thoughts, the words spoken were being spoken TO me, and not my own mind thinking them up.

He even caught me off guard, as I usually don’t hear Him speak more than one or two words on certain occasions. My mind is always so active that I often hear only my own thoughts, and am not internally quiet enough to hear Him alone.

Well this morning, He spoke the following message to me:   “Rise above these earthly matters and concerns.  Rise above–  Love!”    

I laid there thinking on what I heard Him say, and then wondered if He was referring to all the many worries and concerns I have over things to happen in my future..  financial concerns I have.,  health concerns…

“I’m Here”



I just wanted to share how our Lord truly condescends and bends over backwards even for those who mock and despise Him in this present day and age.    On my Youtube channel, I have a video titled, ‘How I know God Answer’s Prayer” where I shared about how after I had asked God to provide me a particular out of print book of that exact title,  seven days later, He arranged for someone to give it to me without my having let anyone know I was searching for it.       I have a video on this experience and for some reason it always seems to attract a lot of the agnostic and atheist folks that love to spam Christian videos encouraging people to have more faith in God.   I even have 5 dislikes on this video so far, also.

Well this afternoon about three atheist or agnostic folks posted sarcastic comments on that video,   and normally I just ignore them, but this time I felt the Lord wanted me to ask Him to provide a reply for them.       I prayed then blindly opened to His recorded words in the journal, “He and I”, and  got goosebumps as my eyes fell right on the exact reply He wanted me to give these people challenging His existence and labeling all Christians as “idiots”.

   “Prove your God exists or sit down like the clown you are.”  this person posted.  In reply God gave me His words from the August 3, 1949 entry.. just a two word reply that got right to the point:      “I’m here.”   (  Gabrielle Bossis added in italics: “in a tone of gentle reproach”)   

That’s all our Lord needed to reply.. just two words-  “I’m here”.     Even that answer was not enough to get through to the particular person the Lord had me reply to., but I am praying for him that one day he will be willing to open his heart and will no longer reject God’ grace to receive faith…   as faith is actually a gift from God and not something we can manufacture through human reasoning.

It just goes to show us , though, how God speaks to all of us, no matter how undeserving we are,  but not all of us always tune in to actually listen to Him.     Our Lord reminded me that I was the same way as well, and so there is hope for the least of us.     “He is here” and you can take His word on that!
