“Lori O’Neil’s latest book, His Voice in My Heart, is so well written and truly penned with God in her heart. Her Testimonials are especially significant to me along with all the love she conveys in every word, sentence, and book she has written. Lori is an amazing writer and I look forward to book four. Thank you, Lori, for this gift!”

“‘Lord, when did we see thee hungry and feed thee, or thirsty and give thee drink? And when did we see thee a stranger and welcome thee, or naked and clothe thee? And when did we see thee sick or in prison and visit thee?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:37-40


Unquenchable Fire

There is a fire burning within.

Fire burns in the bowels of the earth, igniting strange fire upon the earth.

It threatens to burn.

A twist of events from those threatened to burn.

Fire burns within . . .

There is a fire that burns in the heart of My prophets–refuses to be quenched!

It is a Holy Fire–Will you listen?

Man has rejected, turned away–stopped the ears; yet the earth trembles with Fire–

For I cannot–‘will not’ be quenched!

Will you listen?

Watch and see, for the burning begins . . .

“The Lord also thundered in the heavens, and the Highest gave his voice; hail stones and coals of fire. Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them. Then the channels of water were seen, and the foundations of the world were discovered at thy rebuke, O Lord, at the blast of the breath of thy nostrils.” Psalms 18:13-15 KJV

“The Lord reigns; let the earth rejoice; let the many coastlands be glad! Clouds and thick darkness are round about him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne. Fire goes before him, and burns up his adversaries round about. His lightnings lighten the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth. The heavens proclaim his righteousness; and all the peoples behold his glory.” Psalms 97:1-6

“The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. . .”

“Lift up your heads, O ye gates: and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory. Selah.” Psalms 24:1-2, 7-10 KJV

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? . . .I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living! Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; yea, wait for the Lord!” Psalms 27:1, 13-14

What Are You Thinking?

This new year is one of introspect and invention. I want you to take a deep look within . . . I want you to re-invent your life to My specifications.

Your expectation is not wrong, but you will not reach it if you do not tweak your habits and adjust your ways–including your way of thinking.

Consider your ways.

Loss and time have torn at your mind. Think about that and learn from it–

your thinking must change.

Function begins in the mind, but how you think and what you think about can also stop all function.

Meditate on the Word–it will release you from all torment.

When you find peace, then listen for My direction. Do not take direction from the storm. Command the storm–learn from it, but do not run from it.

I may use others to give you confirmation, but I AM your direction–within.

“Apply your mind to instruction and your ear to words of knowledge.” Proverbs 23:12

I AM in the midst of the storm. (Mark 4:38-40)

All around you may be chaos, but you will maintain peace, within, if you know that I AM.

Yes, I AM!

“My son, if your heart is wise, my heart too will be glad. My soul will rejoice when your lips speak what is right. Let not your heart envy sinners, but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day. Surely there is a future, and your hope will not be cut off. Hear my son and be wise, and direct your mind in the way.” Proverbs 23:15-19

“My son, be attentive to my words; incline your ear to my sayings. Let them not escape from your sight; keep them within your heart. For they are life to him who finds them, and healing to all his flesh. Keep your heart with all vigilance; for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you crooked speech, and put devious talk far from you. Let your eyes look directly forward, and your gaze be straight before you. Take heed to the path of your feet, then all your ways will be sure. Do not swerve to the right or to the left; turn your foot away from evil.” Proverbs 4:20-27

“Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

Bill’s Unshakable Hope

The world lost a great man today and if you have not met him, I am sorry for your loss. I have only known him for a short time, but very few people have affected me more.

He is the author of the blog, Unshakable Hope, here on WordPress, and you may find his many years of messages at http://www.unshakablehope.com

Bill Sweeney, suffered for over 24 years with ALS; a terrible disease that slowly takes a life away, but keeps the person trapped in a body they can’t use as it progresses. You may read about the disease elsewhere, but what I want you to read here is about the man inside. He is the one that couldn’t speak to you, but spoke to thousands from his computer. He maintained his own blog through modern technology; a computer program that would type each letter that his retina rested on. That in itself is a miraculous discovery. I Praise the Lord for the insight for this that He gave, and am thankful for the person that developed it– truly an amazing gift to the world–as is Bill!

I can’t imagine how painstakingly and tediously long it must have taken to type out a post, one focused letter at a time, but Bill never took pause or shortcut. His ministry to the world brought compassion, insight, love, respect, humor and most of all tremendous encouragement! He was a friend to all, and thousands were refreshed by his timely messages. It was a ministry of love that took him to the Throne of God, and then out to the world and back again. It took him out of a body that wouldn’t respond, to a Body that responded–the Body of Christ.

The old adage of “behind every good man is a good woman,” may not be politically correct anymore, but it certainly is correct for Bill. He would not have been able to do all that he has done without the loving support, strength and tenacity of his wonderful wife, Mary. My heart goes out to this sweet woman, a valiant fighter, a strong woman of God. My heart cries out for the years ahead, as Mary carves this new path. I have lived it, am living it, and I so wish I could spare her this!

Mary, Lauren and Leah, may God’s peace and comfort surround you now. May you be comforted, always, with the knowledge that Bill stands before the Throne of God, in worship. He is singing!!!

May you all find strength for the days and years to come. May you be surrounded with love!

Thank you for sharing your husband, dad, with the world and your extended family of God. He truly is a gift to us all

With much love and prayers, Lori J. O’Neil

In the Quiet Place

You think the quiet times, the silent times, are hard times–difficult to understand.

You question if you have done something wrong or offended Me.

You feel the loss, the separation, as if you’re apart from Me.

Can you understand–solidify in your heart, that we never part?

Your thoughts must match the Word or they are futile thoughts, unproductive–a waste of time; when I would have you  draw closer to Me.

When it seems as if I AM absent, I cause you to stir.

“As a hart longs for flowing streams, so longs my soul for thee O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When shall I come and behold the face of God? My tears have been my food day and night, while men say to me continually, ‘Where is your God?'” Psalms 42:1-3

Come up higher–seek more–drink deeply from a ‘new’ well.

My Grace abounds to you, as you find your ‘new place.’

And yet, you’d thought you had done something wrong; that I had hid My Face from thee. You couldn’t be further from the Truth. The Truth is where I’ll always be. Find the Truth, for I AM, your quiet place in Me . . . Rest in that.

Rest in Me!

“So then, my soul, why would you be depressed? Why would you sink into despair? Just keep hoping and waiting on God, your Savior. For no matter what, I will still sing with praise, for living before his face is my saving grace!” Psalms 42:5 TPT

“So I say to my soul, “Don’t be discouraged. Don’t be disturbed. For I know my God will break through for me.” Then I’ll have plenty of reasons to praise him all over again. Yes, living before his face is my saving grace!” Psalms 42:11 TPT

The Truth of Need

The Lord awakened me in the middle of the night, by speaking this message to me. It is a strong message, not often given, and it takes courage on my part; but I am just the messenger. It would take far more courage to displease the Lord and not relate what He has spoken to me. In pondering the fact that he woke me up for this, I realized that the act of that, in itself, is prophetic. He is essentially saying–Wake up Church!

The Truth of Need

There is a vast majority of people who simply don’t know who I AM–

It is wrong to assume that they do.

Many think that the majority do, and that they just don’t care, but this is not so.

Some haven’t been taught. Some might have been taught, but have forgotten–they were so young. A few have rejected Me, when they heard, but just a few out of the vast majority that simply have not heard the full gospel message.

This is a travesty to consider, when you think of the number who know Me and yet they do not speak of it–share what they know with another; let alone many others–when there are many, many, others in need of a seed.

Just one seed could save a life!

Just one seed, could grow into a tree to save many.

Many such ‘trees’ could save a nation . . .

Thus is the ripple-effect if one were to share about Me.

And yet, you say you have no need. Yet you are pitiful–wretched, naked and blind; for you don’t ‘see’ the NEED!

Turn it around–Plant a seed!

Please?

“He said therefore, ‘What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed which a man took and sowed in his garden; and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches.'” Luke 13:18-19

“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot, Would that you were cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of my mouth. For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing; not knowing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. Therefore I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, that you may be rich, and white garments to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nakedness from being seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, that you may see. Those whom I love, I reprove and chasten; so be zealous and repent.'” Revelation 3:15-19

“And some one said to him, “Lord, will those who are saved be few?” And he said to them, ‘Strive to enter by the narrow door; for many, I tell you, will seek to enter and will not be able. When once the householder has risen and shut the door, you will begin to stand outside and to knock at the door saying, ‘Lord, open to us.’ He will answer you, ‘I do not know where you come from.’ Then you will begin to say, ‘We ate and drank in your presence, and you taught in our streets.’ But he will say, ‘I tell you, I do not know where you come from; depart from me, all you workers of iniquity!’ There you will weep and gnash your teeth, when you see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob and all the prophets in the kingdom of God and you yourselves thrust out.” Luke 13:23-28

“And he told this parable: ‘A man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came seeking fruit on it and found none. And he said to the vine-dresser, ‘Lo, these three years I have come seeking fruit on this tree, and I find none. Cut it down; why should it use up the ground?’ And he answered him, ‘Let it alone, sir, this year also, till I dig about it and put on manure. And if it bears fruit next year, well and good; but if not, you can cut it down.'” Luke 13:6-9

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if any one hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. He who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I myself conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.'” Revelation 3:20-22

Planting His Garden

I had a special visit in the night from a reader in Nigeria, to a post that was published in 2013. The title of the post is “Unending Harvest.” Not remembering what it was about, I decided to pay a visit myself. The post is so perfect for “Giving Tuesday” that I decided to re-post it today. “Unending Harvest” speaks God’s heart of what “Giving Tuesday” is all about.

Ironically, last night I said to my son,

“Who started this “Giving Tuesday” thing that everyone joins in on?”

It is like I was led again to that post in answer to my question. . . God started “Giving Tuesday” (long before man made it a day) and Giving Sunday and Monday and Wednesday and Thursday and Friday and Saturday and well, you know.

It is wonderful that everyone rallies on a special day to give, but I join God’s heart in the matter–every day it is special to give.

Every day is a gift that’s been given to you–a gift to be shared.

This “Giving Tuesday,” is the perfect time to thank those that have given funds to help us place “Comfort in the Challenge” and “His Voice in My Heart” books in prisons, jails and rehabs all over the country–Thank you, God Bless you!

Linking arms with you has been a wonderful blessing!

I am so thankful, and delighted to report that ‘together’ we will be “planting” 3,310 books. I believe the harvest is unending that will come from these books; as God’s Messages speak to hurting hearts–bringing hope, healing and freedom to a nation hidden from society, but not hidden from the Lord.

“‘Now I will arise,’ says the Lord, ‘now I will lift myself up; now I will be exalted.” Isaiah 33:10

There is still time to give. The order has not been placed yet and after it has, the publisher will hold all donations for the next book “His Voice in My Heart, Vol II.” It has been written, now being edited and scheduled to be published and placed in the spring. Thank you, to all who link arms in planting the Lord’s Garden–It is colorful, it is beautiful, it is Love!

Unending Harvest (previously published December 11, 2013)

Do you know that My Garden produces year-round?

And I invite all to come and plant in it. When My Body joins together to tend, My Garden, there is never any lack for harvest.

Blessing flows–continuous abundance!

Plant seeds every day, not vicariously but purposefully, joyfully–given at every opportunity. Give of your time, money, talents, a kind word, a helping hand and more.

Plant every variety of seed you can think of, for I love a colorful garden.

Plant with joy,

for I love a cheerful giver–it brings Me great joy and the joy of the Lord is ‘your’ strength!

‘Prepare’–to–‘receive’

“I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging bread. He is ever giving liberally and lending, and his children become a blessing.” Psalms 37:25-26

“From the fruit of his words a man is satisfied with good, and the work of a man’s hand comes back to him.” Proverbs 12:14

“I know, my God, that thou triest the heart, and hast pleasure in uprightness; in the uprightness of my heart I have freely offered all these things, and now I have seen thy people, who are present here, offering freely and joyously to thee. O Lord the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, our fathers, keep for ever such purposes and thoughts in the hearts of thy people, and direct their hearts toward thee.” I Chronicles 29:17-18

“The point is this: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that you may always have enough of everything and may provide in abundance for every good work.

As it is written, ‘He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures for ever.’

He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your resources and increase the harvest of your righteousness.” II Corinthians 9:6-10

“Trust in the Lord, and do good; so you will dwell in the land, and enjoy security. Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalms 37:3-4

“In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand; for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good.” Ecclesiastes 11:6

Cleansing Fire

Though you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned . . .

Notice it does not say “stand still.”

Many just stand, in fear, not moving forward in their plan in life. This is not My will for you; for you will be productive in every season.

The fire refines you–purifies you.

But if you are standing still, you are ‘allowing’ circumstances to overtake you, not cleanse . . .

Walk with Me.

I AM in this with you.

I AM teaching you–I’ve been there!

You will not be burned, but you will learn. And one day you will marvel and understand what the ‘fire’ has taught you . . .

I will see you through.

Be cleansed!

“When you pass through the waters I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior.” Isaiah 43:2-3

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! By his great mercy we have been born anew to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and to an inheritance which is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. In this you rejoice, though for a little while you may have to suffer various trials, so that the genuineness of your faith, more precious than gold which though perishable is tested by fire, may redound to praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.” I Peter 1:3-7

“Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal which comes upon you to prove you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice in so far as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” I Peter 4:12-13

“Blessed is the man who endures trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life which God has promised to those who love him.” James 1:12

I invite you to scroll down and read the post just prior to this . . .

In it you will find that we are in the process of sending out “Comfort in the Challenge” and “His Voice in My Heart” books to prisons, jails and rehabs all over the country. The current estimation is (3,310) books! Please consider partnering in this mission of bringing the healing and restoring love of God to those hidden from society, but not hidden from the Lord.

Special Announcement!

Hello Friends!

I have a special announcement to the world–the Lord has indicated to me that it is time to send the books!

Please let me explain . . .

You may have read previously, when I wrote about the Lord asking me to compile a book of His messages. As I began to do that, ‘prisoners’, arose in my heart so strong that I began to sort messages for an additional book for them as well. It was soon clear that one book was to be two; and ‘His Voice in My Heart Volume II’ has now been written and scheduled to be printed in the spring.

All along it has been strong on my heart to send the books to prisoners.

So when the Lord indicated it was time, I spent an excited and near sleepless night, culling over blog posts on “Inmate Blogger.” A special website, hosted by Suzie Bosko, that gives a platform for inmates to share what’s on their hearts’. So as I read and collected addresses, it was 4:30am when I began to look into the protocol for sending books; only to find that individuals can no longer send books to prisoners; with the exception of ordering from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. I was stunned and asked the Lord, “What do I do now?” He didn’t make me wait, not even five minutes, but immediately led me to a ministry in Florida that has, for 26 years, been doing exactly that — placing books in prisons all over the country. I barely slept two hours that night, but I got my answer!

I called “Prison Book Project” the next morning and received from, Joyce, a warm and enthusiastic reception. They have a roster of 2,715 prisons, jails and rehabs all over USA and some outside the country, including our wonderful, faithful troops in Afghanistan, that they send books to–wow!

So I am scraping all I can and my publisher is in process to send 2,500 books.

And today it is strong on my heart to offer to anyone out there, feeling a stirring in their heart, to join us in this special project–please do!

We welcome all contributions, big or small!

To donate, please go to https://www.nationofwomen.com, this is an affiliate ministry of Nation of Women Publishing, my publisher. At this site, funds can be donated toward the purchase of books to be given and it is a 501c3 non-profit, your gift is tax deductible. Visit the secure link above and from a computer, click on the contribution tab at the top. From a smartphone, click on the 4 small lines in the upper right corner and then select ‘contribution’. On the contribution page click on ‘donate here’ button under the butterfly. Please include a note in the comment section that your donation is for the prison books. You may also send a check to the address provided on that website.

All money will be used to purchase books to be given. I will not receive any money from this. Please understand that, for this project only, Canaanland will not be receiving the proceeds, since no proceeds are coming in. All funds are going out, in given books. Canaanland is still and always will receive any proceeds from ‘Comfort in the Challenge’ books, purchased otherwise. I do urge you to continue to purchase, to help that wonderful and much needed ministry!

If you would like further verification of the validity of this project, please do call “Prison Book Project.” of Titusville, Florida. I want you to give with confidence, knowing that your money will entirely be used for this special prison ministry. Visit https://www.prisonbookproject.org for details and contact information.

Please consider acting quickly, as we will be placing the printing order very soon, before the end of this year. I hope to greatly increase that order, beyond what I can possibly do on my own. Together we can bring healing, hope and the Love of Jesus to thousands of hurting men and women all over the USA and beyond! Any monies received after the order has been placed will be held by the publisher in anticipation of Volume II, now written, but in the process of editing; and these will be sent out to prisons as well.

I invite you to re-blog* this to your website–please help me reach the world!

Together, let’s join our hearts’ to bring the Blessing and the Love of God to those that may be hidden from society, but not hidden from the Lord!

If that one is you, you are not forgotten–you are loved!

“Then the King will say to those at his right hand, ‘Come, O blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” Matthew 25:35-36

“–‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me.'” Matthew 25:40

Thank you and God Bless you,

Lori O’Neil

Two new books available to help you in these challenging times . . .

“Comfort in the Challenge.” Published in 2019, and written in dedication to caregivers. A book inspired by God, in provision, before awareness of Covid 19. Read it to be comforted, and encouraged. All messages are spoken from the Heart of God as fresh bread. All proceeds from “Comfort in the Challenge” go directly to Canaanland Ministries of Autaugaville, Alabama. Canaanland has a wonderfully successful 40 year history, dedicated to helping men, desiring to overcome addiction, find new life in Jesus!

“His Voice in My Heart,” published in 2020. A journey of messages God has spoken over the past seven years. In sorting messages for “Comfort in the Challenge,” ‘prisoners’ welled up in my heart so strongly, that I began to sort messages for this special assignment as well. “His Voice in My Heart” is filled with His messages to comfort, challenge and bring restoration; along with several inspiring true testimonies of God’s healing and provision. “His Voice in My Heart” is a special book in your journey to freedom!

The messages are spoken from the heart of God, but are not meant to replace the Word; rather, they serve to lead you to it, give practical application, and encourage understanding of the Word. It is the Word of God that saves, heals and delivers–Jesus, is the Word. Included in both books you will find many scriptures for your study in the Word.

Both books may be ordered from, Nation of Women Publishing, found by clicking the link below.

Do not hold back from supporting ministries that are preaching the gospel around the world. They serve the Lord and are reaching places you may never see. When you support the preaching of the Gospel, you support the Lord’s work and hasten our coming Lord, King Jesus

Human nature tends to shoot their best supporting foot, just because it steps a little different than the other. May we all take on the ‘nature’ of God and receive His peace and understanding for one another!

*Please note: For some reason the re-blog button does not show up on the homepage. But I discovered that if you simply click on the title of this post, “Special Announcement” at the top of the page, it will take you to the individual post page; which has a reblog button at the bottom, right next to the “like” button.

Thank you for sharing this and for your generous donations, in partnership, to reach the world!

Confounding the Wise

Joseph interpreted Pharaoh’s dream.

Pharaoh dreamt of lean ears consuming the fat and full ears. Likewise, the gaunt cows devoured the fat cows. This was to prepare them, in provision, for lean times. (Genesis 41:1-7)

Now I AM preparing, in provision, for abundant times. . .The fat and flourishing shall consume and overtake the gaunt and lean.

Those years are over when harvest comes!

But harvest begins in the mind, just as it did with Pharaoh. He saw it in his mind and cried out for understanding.

Pharaoh had no covenant with Me, yet I used his wealth to provide for My chosen.

Rahab had no covenant with Me, yet I used her to provide safety for My chosen.

Think beyond your understanding, for I will use others that will confound the wise. Others, that don’t know Me, but they will–for I AM!

I will prove it.

Be ready!

“And God sent me before you to preserve for you a remnant on earth, and to keep alive for you many survivors. So it was not you who sent me here, but God; and he has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house and ruler over all the land of Egypt. Make haste and go up to my father and say to him, ‘Thus says your son Joseph, God has made me lord of all Egypt; come down to me, do not tarry; you shall dwell in the land of Goshen, and you shall be near me, you and your children and your children’s children, and your flocks, your herds, and all that you have; and there I will provide for you, for there are yet five years of famine to come; lest you and your household, and all that you have, come to poverty.'” Genesis 45:7-11

“But Rahab the harlot, and her father’s household, and all who belonged to her, Joshua saved alive; and she dwelt in Israel to this day, because she hid the messengers whom Joshua sent to spy out Jericho.” Joshua 6:26

“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, ‘I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.'” I Corinthians 1:18-19 KJV

“But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty; And the base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are: That no flesh should glory in his presence. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, ‘He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.'” I Corinthians 1:27-31
