Message From God?
I acquired this domain back in 1995, inspired by the billboard campaign in the early 1990's. I originally wanted to do an online version of that campaign, but as the years went by, and life's challenges took priority, I went back and forth between that idea and other "ministerial" ideas for the site. Finally, near the end of 2007, I decided to put my original vision out there, and this is what you see today.

My vision for MessageFromGod.com is simply to encourage visitors on a daily basis with snippets that I believe are inspired by God -- I believe that God speaks to all of us throughout our day in an infinite number of ways. I don't claim to have "The Message", just some inspirations. Personally, I see and hear God through nature, life challenges, and the people who surround me at home, work, play...anywhere, and the messages on this site are a collection of various people's inspiration from their prayers, revelations, hopes, joys, challenges, and other life experiences.

Hope...
To that end I have collected snippets from friends, family and people from many walks of life and faiths. In keeping an open heart and mind, I welcome encouraging and/or insightful snippets that have come to you as well. If you would like to submit a snippet, please click here.

Donations...
I recently received an e-mail through this site from someone who was apparantly offended by the idea that I would ask for donations. Here is the actual message, a direct copy and paste:
  • "Last time I checked God didn't charge me for prayers are you really that stupid that you don't get to prey on people without it coming back on you"
Now, I am the first to admit that I do not communicate in any way that even approaches perfection. That being said, here was my response:
  • "Please forgive me if I have offended you -- that was not my intent. I do not, in fact, charge anyone for access to this site, or for prayer. That, as you have pointed out, would be stupid. Not only that, it would be in total opposition to what I set out to do not only on this site, but everyday in my life. I put the "Donate" link on the site if, AND ONLY IF, it is on someone's heart to help with the very real costs of hosting and maintaining the site -- it is totally and completely optional, and if I never get a donation, so be it. I will continue the site regardless. I hope that I have actually been able to communicate to you my heart here...as flawed as I am, and I will change the "Donate" area on the site to hopefully communicate this in a way that is more clear."
Unfortunately, the only contact information provided by the person who sent the message was an e-mail address that does not exist...I only hope that they return to read my response, see that I have changed this Donate area, and, most importantly, to get my heart.

As always, if there is something that you wish to communicate to me, please feel free to contact me.
