"No man can ever claim you, unless he claims you from ME. I reserved a man for you, he has My heart and he loves ME more than he will love you. He will not have you unless he asks of you from ME. Soon you will know him. I have the perfect time. YOU are My Princess, My Daughter, let no Prince claim you unless he asks for your hand from ME. For I AM your Father, the King of Kings, and you, My Princess are worth loving".
A thank you to Daniel Kidd . who posted this the other morn -- it was a direct answer to prayer for me and I knew that I knew - it was something I was to share with my 'girls' -- The Daughters of the KING . . .

So . ..remember the old saying . ...sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me. Yeah right -- words hurt ..words really can bring one down . . .and words can tear at a soul but the beauty in this .. is that words can heal . . .words can bring one up . . . and words can rebuild you.
But, it needs to be God's words. God's. HIS alone.
In the past few days, the Enemy has been able to take me to a place of self-doubt, frustration, and defeat and yet the Lord, in HIS timing and perfection allowed this and has brought beauty out of the rubble -- again, like a good DADDY always does. I am so humbled.
HE has. I am so humbled.
This am, I got this illustration ... . with Christ in me, I am filled -- nothing should be able to penetrate that armor and get to me . .and yet, those closest around me seem to know exactly what to say or what to do and wham . . . .defeat ... sadness . . . frustration.
So, why not be like 'rubber'? Let that BOUNCE off !! Yes. Bounce off. And then think of the one who said the words . .think them to be . . .. 'glue' .. I mean. . . .. now return the crud with some of God's good prophetic words .. speak life into that person and pray your words STICK like glue ..even if they seem to jump off them or bounce off -- God's word does not go out void and you have planted seeds. You have.
God's word says: Isaiah 55.11 So will my word be whick goes forth from MY mouth, it will not return to ME empty.
Don't be discouraged. Don't.
Last night - around midnight - God gave me this:
I am so humbled -- HE gently reminded me to HOLD on . . . things seem darkest before the dawn and HIS timing is perfect. OK, Here it is:
It is from the Living Bible: Habakkuk 2.3
But these things I plan won't happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!
Oh Lord, thank you .. . . . This is an answer to my pleas of the past few days -- asking you for some sort of 'understanding' . . well, YOU know. This is also an answer to his prayer, he prayed that I would get that glow and happiness back from the Encounter experience .. .it is here again -- whoa -- watch out Enemy - you are being defeated. Period.
Lord, for all of my prayer requests today . .may each one of those ladies . . see how wonderful you are and may they too - get a direct word from you. May whatever comes at them, bounce off like rubber and as they speak into the lives of others -- YOUR words .. may they stick like glue. I am humbled Lord, I love you.
-- your Priceless daughter -- your beautiful servant .. michelle

My dear sweet Michelle,
My dear sweet Darlene,
My dear sweet Bernice,
My dear sweet Debi,
My dear strong Brendan,
My dear daughter Taylor,
My son Hunter,
My beloved Marilyn,
My storm trouper Lowell,
My sweet ones that call Michelle a sister in Wisconsin,
My special ones that just know Michelle here in Okeechobee,
My precious one Sandy,
My warrior for Me Beth,
** Can you tell . . I believe this is God speaking to all of us today . . . I should start it --
If you learn to trust Me-- really trust Me -- with your whole being, then nothing can separate you from My Peace. Everything you endure can be put to good use by allowing it to train you in trusting Me. This is how you foil the works of evil, growing in grace through the very adversity that was meant to harm you. Joseph was a prime example of this divine reversal, declaring to his brothers: "You meant evil against me, but God meant it for good." Do not fear what this day, or any day, may bring your way. Concentral on trusting Me and on doing what needs to be done. Relax in My sovereignty, rememberting that I go before you, as well as with you, into each day. Fear no evil, for I can bring good out of every situation you will ever encounter.
Genesis 50. 20 Psalm 23. 4
Dear Lord, thank you!

What a day -- to stop and think about the 'end' of this era and yet we are still in 'war' times. I remember that day -- September 11th. I had taken my students to Computer Lab. The lady there was in tears, as her son was in the military and she had been alerted to turn on the news.
Was it the end of the world?
I walked to the office where my Principal quickly had the Media Center turn 'off' the news access and I walked to a TV - away from kids. And I watched .. I actually saw the 2nd plane hit right on the TODAY show. And I sat there - asking? Was it the end?
I called Brendan and asked, what he thought -- I don't remember what he said, I remember I was not 'very comforted' by his response but I was not upset either. It was a time to pray.
Was this the end. And for the next few days, we lived by the TV.
I can see what I was wearing -- my blue, long jumper from Talbots with a white crisp shirt under it . .that was one of my 'favorite' teacher jumpers .
Anyway, today was an historic day.
It is hard to 'celebrate' a death. Some feel justice was served. There may or may not be some closure now.
It seems funny that a few days ago the military was getting its budget slashed . .and yet . . how much was spent for this event.
I can't say I am 'happy' that a man entered hell and I do believe that is where he went. But, now there will be something else to talk and chat about.
One person posted on FBook that hell got a little hotter today -- interesting.
I know one thing - I am not going there.
What an historic day.
