Alone Time

So needy
So lazy
So little self-control

Not liking my current state

Help, need Your Help

Your Light
Your Strength

Above all Your Loving Presence

Increase my Faith

Lord, help me cooperate more fully,

more deliberately,
more faithfully

with Your Grace

The path is not unclear

You are the Way, the Truth, the Life

Don't give up!

Keep trying!

"Child, you are forgiven, and loved!"

My loving glance is on you.

I know you can't stand how inconsistent your behavior is with your desires.

The desires I have given you.

You want nothing less than Divine Union in your soul.

You've read about it.

You love me,
but you hurt at how imperfect and unfaithful your love is.

You hurt that you know you don't live like a representative of me.

I love you.

I am your Savior.

Get up!  Try again!

My Holy Spirit is with you.


Do what you need to.

Plan your time for me.
We have a great work to do in your soul,
and in your life for my Kingdom.

Behold - I do make all things new!

Lord, make me into a woman after your own heart,
a woman who will be the lover of you,
my husband, my children, my friends, and your friends,
the way you will me to be.


  1. Colleen, I felt I was reading a description of my own did you know?

    So grateful for a friend like you. BTW, I read your comments re my kind, so thoughtful and caring. Thank you! I will respond on my blog, but just wanted to thank you here as well. Your prayers mean so much!

    I talked to him this morning. He's so happy and excited. I wanted to say something...but not the right time. Much prayer needed first.

    Love you, my friend!

  2. I felt that one, Colleen. Like Patricia, I could see myself in this post. It was beautiful and the love of God really shined through and filled me with hope. I've felt sort of overwhelmed lately and this post spoke to my heart. Thank you :)

  3. I only found this today, Colleen..but I'm typically late to the party..
    I see myself in this post too..and thanks to the Lord..He's never late, It's just what I needed.
