You’ve Got Mail: A Heartfelt Letter From God
I see the tears that put you to sleep night after night, I hear the prayers that only your heart can say because your lips are too weary from praying. I see the mornings it takes all you have but you get up, show up and put a smile on your face like everything’s fine. I see the aching of your heart, the brokenness of your spirit. I know that you feel alone like you’re walking through the valley of the shadow of death with no rod and staff for comfort. I know that you see yourself bending back over from the burdens that seem too heavy for you, I know you’ve wondered time and again where I am and if I’ve forgotten you. But hear me today, even if a mother forgets her baby at the breast, I will never forget you. There’s absolutely nothing you can do that would separate you from the overwhelming love I have for you. There’s no struggle known to man that can break you. There is nothing the devil can do to defeat your purpose. I know it seems hard to believe, but this waters will not sweep over you, this fire will not burn you, these flames shall not consume you. Because I have called you by name and you are mine. I will carry you when your legs seem too weak to move on, because my power is made manifest in your weakness and my grace is sufficient for you. You will triumph over this mountain like the victor that you are. Remember a father only chastises those he loves, it breaks my heart to see your tears, but I’d rather you pass through the fire and be refined to pure gold than you remain comfortable and impure. Hold on fast to me, keep your eyes on me the author and finisher of your faith and not your circumstances or situations. All of that will pass away, but my promises of good and not evil, to give you a future and an expected end will stand through till the end of time. The devil will whisper lies to you telling you I don’t love you anymore, that I see your tears. Beware of him, he’s a roaring lion who only wants to steal, kill and destroy, he wants you to skip the formative period so the world will not get to experience the fireball for me you will become. I will never fail to remind you that I love you, that I’m holding you and that you’re never alone. Listen to me, shut your ears to the lies of the devil, and in tune them to the truth the Holy Spirit whispers to you. Find your strength in me, for alone you are weak, fragile, vulnerable and the slightest winds would shake your sail, but with me, the one whom the winds and waves obey, you can sail strong against the storms. Remember, I am with you always, until the end of time.
Your heavenly Father.
