Heavenly Father . . .

Yes dear child . . .

What do your eyes see that You would like our eyes to see also?


God Reveals


Dear child,

I see that My children are not reaching out to those who . . .

Are lost . . .

Are hungry . . .

Are thirsty . . .

Are needing clothes . . .

Are cold . . .

Are just needing someone to listen . . .

Are without a home . . .

Are neglected . . .

Are lonely . . .

Are in prison . . .

Are fatherless . . .

Are unloved by the world . . .

Are just needing a hug . . .

Are needing a shoulder to cry on . . .

Are being harmed . . .

Are unable to speak for themselves.

A Child Wonders


Heavenly Father . . .

Yes dear child . . .

What breaks Your heart?


God Reveals


Dear child,

My heart breaks for those who do not yet know Me; those who are lost.

My heart breaks when My children do not tell anyone about Me.

My heart breaks for the choices made by My children that harm themselves and others.

My heart breaks when My children have no or little faith.

My heart breaks for the brokenhearted.

My heart breaks for those who are suffering, when My children can reach out to those suffering.

My heart breaks when My children’s hearts do not reflect goodness.

My heart breaks for all who do not realize how very much I love them.

My heart breaks for those who do not realize just how beautiful they are in my eyes.

My heart breaks when My children do not love themselves or others.

My heart breaks when My children are not gentle.

My heart breaks when My children do not reflect my character by reaching out to those who are downtrodden, hungry, homeless, thirsty, needing clothing and in prison.

My heart breaks when My children are not patient.

My heart breaks when My children have unforgiveness in their hearts.

My heart breaks when My children do not speak up for those who cannot speak up for themselves.

My heart breaks when My children are not joyful.

My heart breaks when My children are still in enslaved by the things that bind them, even after I sent My Son to die for them, so that they may truly be set free.

My heart breaks when My children do not really believe Me and my promises, and do not truly trust in Me.

My heart breaks when My children are not kind.

My heart breaks when My children do not desire a personal intimate relationship with Me by communicating with Me through prayer in My Son’s name and reading My Word to get to know My character.

My heart breaks when My children are not in self-control.

Heavenly Father, once You have opened our eyes, I prayerfully ask that You reveal to us just exactly what it is You would have us to do. In Jesus' Name. Amen



A Child Wonders


Heavenly Father . . .

Yes dear child . . .

Once our eyes are opened, what would You have us to do?


God Reveals


Dear child,

Once your eyes are opened, I would have you to . . .

Love Me with your whole heart, mind and body above all else . . .

Love all others as you love yourself . . .

Be My hands and feet . . .

Live your life in such a manner that glorifies Me . . .

Tell those who are lost all about Me . . .

Tell someone of your relationship with Me and how you are now changed . . .

Pray continually . . .

Forgive others . . .

Give water to those who are thirsty . . .

Show mercy to others . . .

Provide food to those who are hungry . . .

Give clothing to those who need clothing . . .

Visit someone in prison and tell them I love them . . .

Do not judge others . . .

Do those things that make an eternal difference.

Heavenly Father, I prayerfully ask that You reveal to us more about Yourself and Your true character, so that we may grow in our personal relationship with You. In Jesus' Name. Amen.






A Child Wonders


Heavenly Father . . .

Yes dear child . . .

What would You like for us to know about You?


God Reveals


Dear child . . .

What I would like for you to know about Me is that . . .

I will never allow anything to separate you from My love . . .

I sent My Son to die on the cross for you and the whole world . . .

That My grace is sufficient for you . . .

I am the giver of life . . .

My mercies are new each and every day . . .

I am the fountain of living water . . .

I am Your redeemer . . .

I know what it is like to be tempted . . .

I am your strong tower . . .

I will always provide an escape when you are tempted . . .

I know what it is like to suffer . . .

I am your shelter in times of trouble . . .

I will always love you . . .

It is sin that I hate . . .

I know how beautiful you are . . .

I know your every thought . . .

I know your heart . . .

I am always near to you . . .

I know your every fear . . .

I see your every tear . . .

I desire a personal relationship with you . . .

I will never forsake you . . .

I have a plan for your life . . .

I plan to prosper you . . .

I plan to give you hope and a future . . .

I plan to not harm you . . .

I am not shocked or surprised by anything . . .

I knew you before I knit you in your mother’s womb . . .

I know every hair on your head . . .

I am the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega.

A Prayer




Heavenly Father, I prayerfully ask that You reveal to us anything else that You would have us to know. In Jesus' Name. Amen








A Child Wonders


Heavenly Father . . .

Yes dear child . . .

Is there anything else that You would like for us to understand or know?


God Reveals


Dear child . . .

I would like for you to understand and know that there is an evil one who walks the Earth seeking to kill, steal and destroy you, My children.

The evil one will come at you like a roaring lion to devour you.

The evil one is a liar, as he is the author of lies.

The evil one is a deceiver, and has had thousands of years to practice his art of deception.

The evil one will attempt to tempt you and dangle seemingly beautiful things in front of your eyes.

The evil one will whisper untruths in your ears.

The evil one will plant false imaginations in your mind.

Dear child . . .

I would also like for you to know that this evil one knows that his time is short, as the victory has already been won when My Son died on that cross, was buried and then rose again and sits by Me at my right hand. This is why the evil one is doing as much damage as he can at this very moment in time.

A Prayer



Heavenly Father, I prayerfully ask that You reveal to us just exactly how we may protect ourselves from the evil one, who seeks to devour us. In Jesus' Name. Amen.




A Child Wonders


Heavenly Father . . .

Yes dear child . . .

How do we protect ourselves from the evil one who walks the Earth seeking to devour us?


God Reveals


Dear child . . .

You protect yourself from the evil one by . . .

Being My child, as the One who is in you, is greater than the one who is on this Earth.

By just saying the name of Jesus out loud, as the evil one must flee, along with his demons.

By praying, as it is one of the weapons against this evil one.

By not being conformed to this world.

By keeping your mind focused on Me.

By spending time in My Word, as it is pure truth and is sharper than any double-edged sword, and will cut through any lies of the evil one.

By keeping your heart pure.

By thinking on those things that are true, lovely, of good report, pure, right, noble, and praiseworthy.

By putting on the full armor of Me, your God, every morning and that is: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth and the sword of the spirit, which is My Word.

By trusting in Me and My promises.

By living your life in such a way that glorifies Me.

Praise to the Father


Heavenly Father, thank you for revealing Your truths to me. I am so very thankful to be Your child, and that Your Son has paid the highest price for my sins. I will serve You and I love you too, with all of my heart, body and mind. I am so glad to be a new creation in Christ, and that the old has passed away, as I have been washed in the blood of Jesus.

Again, Heavenly Father, thank you for ...Your Revelation.


Please enjoy this lovely song and video, and remember to let your light so shine before men.

      Hi Jo (LadyFiddler),

      Yes, the world is indeed full to the overflow with the likes ...

      That is certainly something to ponder. It seems those who are in extreme poverty are so grateful and even have more joy about the smallest things in the life, when we are really lacking nothing and we are still not satisfied.

      We are already rich enough as He is living in us, and all of us can do something, I truly believe, to extend a helping hang, whether it is just a smile, drink of water ... whatever is at hand. Let us show compassion.

      I appreciate you sharing your thoughts here.

      God bless you.

      Huh! I guess we all break his heart everyday in someway or the other sometimes knowingly and unknowingly. But what i have come to realize is that this world i live in is FULL of SELFISH BASTARDS most just thinks of themselves, the rich wants more and they suppress the poor and deprive them even if they give the poor its always the measly scraps or old throw offs that they don't want.

      I wonder if God was selfish and kept everything to Himself where would we all be to day? would be able to despise? would we be selfish and greedy? Most of us are to happy yet we complain all the time.

      I pity starving people and those without water and God knows if i was rich i'd try to help everybody I am not and yet i still try to be kind in whatever way i can.

      Thanks for sharing Faith.

      Hi Peter - so glad you stopped by to read. No, I do not mind if you put it on your website as written by Faith Reaper on Hub Pages. Yes, the Lord gave this to me to write, and I wanted to quit about halfway through it, but He just said, no it's not done yet. So, I always obey Him. He did "reveal" a lot here. If you are not a member of Hub Pages, I recommend that you join, as there are many talented and gifted writers here. I noticed your website if about healing, which I personally know the power of His healing touch in my life. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Josh, no worries!!! I know it was getting late last night and, I, too, had just read Pamela's latest hub. Ha. I so very much appreciate your comments and thank you. No need for any apologies. I figured that is what had happened. I believe I have done the exact same thing, except I may have noticed it to change the name. Ha. God bless you an have a great day in the Lord. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Late Night Super Hero, lord de cross - So glad to see you visit. I know you are a night owl. I think poor sweet Josh, has stayed up too late, as he believed he was commenting on Pamela's hub. Ha. He is too cute. But enough - thanks so very much for the wonderful comments to glorify our God. That is one of my favorite scriptures. Hugs back at you, lord. Have a great night. God bless you. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Bless your sweet heart, Josh, I know it is late, as my eyes are not focusing correctly either, but this is Faith Reaper. Hey, but I am still happy to see you stop by, and you may need to go back on Pamela's hub and re-post your comment to her hub if you were just reading one of hers. Ha. That is too cute. You are precious. God bless. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      "Let the little children come to me, and stop keeping them away, because the kingdom of heaven belongs to people like these" Matthew 19:14. We should be always his children. We can be mad at him, but he will always love us from within. The world is denying his love and he is hurting for us. We thank you so much for writing this heartfelt piece. Big hugs Faith!
