Dear God (Uche)

Dear God,
You know I love you so much right? Last day of 2014 and I’m alive! Hehe, I’m so thankful for everything you’ve done for me in 2014.
Thankful for Your mercy and grace, thankful for preserving and keeping me and my family.
Even though the enemy tried to take You away from me through some tough situations it didn’t succeed, ko poss.
Then you gave me this sweet result, mann Daddy you’re too much! And the fact that I thought my Christmas would be horrible, it was marvelousss. Thank you once again!
Daddy remember the thing I asked you for before the end of 2014, I’m still expecting and even though it’s the last day of 2014, You’d still surprise me. I have faith in you ^^ , no matter what happens though I believe Your will is the best for me. Of course!
Cheers to more and more years together till the end.
I love youuu muahh!

Dear God,

We’ve been through a lot you know especially this year… all our break ups, times I wouldn’t even want to talk to you or even times I felt I’d cheated on you. I remember that time I couldn’t even call you because I felt I didn’t deserve Your love; I would cheat on You and yet You would always welcome me with loving hands.
Nah, I felt really bad and I was like you know what, I think we just need a break from each other.
Days, weeks and months passed, our communication rate declined big time 👇👇.
But then again just like You’ve been doing always you found a way of calling me back. This time in a funny way via Twitter 😄😄
You knew my stalking skills were 🙌 , so to me it came as no surprise. I noticed a friend of mine had changed her ways and she took God more serious, so in my little way I just had a little chat with her and they say the rest is history.
She added me into her bible study group and gradually we began to talk more, I even wrote my first letter to you during that period 😁😁.
Long story cut short we got back together and even made our bond stronger 💪💪💪.

Would also like to thank you for all You’ve done for me this year, Your protection, guidance for my family and friends.
Despite all the attempts of our side chick (the devil), we came out victorious 😎.  
Thanks a lot my real G 👏👏

Ayo.

Dear God,
It’s me again.
Um, I know I haven’t been talking to you a lot recently & that’s why I’m so nervous now but I have a lot to say & you’re the only one I know that’ll completely understand.

When I started this year, I was so sad & afraid. I used to cry a lot, but you know that already, don’t you?
Because I stayed in your presence for hours sometimes begging that my parents stay together but they separated anyway.

You have never ignored my prayers Daddy and that was why I was so confused. I didn’t talk to you for months because I was so angry and hurt and it was a good excuse to sin.

Why my family? It hurt to see my siblings hurt and I suffered. Stepped up, took on so much responsibility, while trying to hide my sadness and problems from the world and also not mess up in school.

But then You still called me. You made events in my life turn around and lead me back to You. And now I finally understand. I’m SO much stronger & braver & wiser. I know what I want & what I don’t. All this time I thought you abandoned me but you were really just toughening me.
Making me into this amazing, beautiful, woman who is now wife material uncountable yards lol because you have great plans for me.
I just love you.
You’re the real mvp lol.
You’re my best friend.
You’re amazing.

All my love forever,
Ezinne.

Dear God,

Hi.
Sometimes I feel like so many people want to talk at you not with you.
They want to tell you what they want, not what you’re offering them.
They demand from you instead of asking you.
I shout at you instead of crying to you. Sometimes, it’s hard.
The devil is constantly there chilling for me to fall.
Even the word hard makes me feel like I have already because nothing is too hard or impossible for you so why Lord do I go on about my hardships? Why in this letter am I still telling you about how hard my life is?

Man. I don’t even know.

I read somewhere that praise confuses the enemy.
Joy is ignited in my heart when I type that down. Lol. Knowing somehow I can still win this battle.
It gives me home. I guess it’s a start. You’ve done so much for me.
You have brought me through so much, Lord.
You were right (duh) when you said “Is anything too great for the Lord?”.
So why do I complain about my hardships still?
Is it some deep down social need? Or do I not believe you can do it? I will glorify you beyond mountains. I will worship you before the seas.
Oh Jehovah, I will tell all creatures about your works.
Then I will lie in my resting place and praise you with the skies. Oh MY El shaddai, is anything too great for you?

As my tears fall, I know you are comforting me, I know you love me. You are great.. My Baby, I am not here to tell you how hard my life is. I don’t want to talk at you anymore. My Baby, I will not shout at you today. I am here to listen to the King.

Who am I that you love me royally?
Who am I Lord that I deserve your praise and adoration?
Who am I Lord?
I am your servant.
You are my Father.

Dear God,

It’s been a while.
I’ve just been feeling so bleehh lately and I know that I should have come to you before now but I didn’t know how.
I mean, your daughter is going through it, like really going through at the moment.
The temptation is suffocating, I’m about to lose my mind. I
need your peace. I need the silence so I can hear from You.
I feel like our connection is slowly disintegrating and I hate it.
Dad please come through for me, I can’t do it on my own.

Your Beloved,
Oriana

Dear God (RSI)

Dear God,
You know who’s writing to you.
I really need to let this out, you are my best friend. And you’re like the best, best friend ever.
I’m sure you already know about this boy, but I’m still going to tell you about him anyway.
He’s now my ex boyfriend, how I wish that wasn’t a fact.
I know we did disappoint you a couple of times in our acts, and I sincerely apologise for that.
But honestly, I just want to thank you for what you have made me realise. For finally letting me know my worth. And for showing me that I deserve much more.
Our break up would probably be the toughest thing right now, but that’s why I’ve got you.
Oh, I love you so much, cause you’ve just got me forever. Help me till the time is right, to find another.
I love you Lord. I really really do.

Yours,
Rsi x

Dear God (El)

Dear Elohim,

I call you El, because it is also my name. It makes me feel like we get each other. I know you get me, which is crazy because I don’t get myself that much, and I get you even less. But I do share your name. That gives me some comfort. Comfort about life.

I often don’t ask of you a lot, because I believe that you know me better than I know myself, and you know what you are doing with me.
I have faith in this.
And in my quiet moments, I always feel your presence.

What I do ask of you, Lord, is understanding. Let me understand life; mine and that of others. All life.
Why, Lord? Why this entire edifice? What is it about us that made this necessary?
What is it about you that you want us to understand?
How does a reckless fool like me learn wisdom?
I love those parts of the Bible where I am told that you speak with a still, small voice. Like I said, I’ve often found you in the silent places of life, in the face of those experiences which we can not put into words.
How do I stay there?
I know that we do not die at them, but until we die, am I ever going to understand?
I am full of questions, some of them so impossible to put into words that I must pass over them in silence. I trust that you understand.
I need you to help me make things clear.

Your son.
El.

Dear God,
Firstly, I just want to thank you for everything that you have done, what you are presently doing and what you are going to do in my life.
Many times I complain even when I know I shouldn’t. I doubt your abilities and I limit you with my own words and thoughts, and for that Father I come before you to ask for forgiveness.

Sigh, God, you see all that is going on and sometimes it feel like nothing is happening. Most times I want to give up, I want to yell or cry. But then I have to remember that you said you have a plan for me, to give me a future and an end.
It’s frustrating sometimes I won’t lie but I know that you will work everything out for my good.
Thank you for restoring peace in my family.

Mold me o Lord into your humble servant. When people see me let them see Christ. Create in me a clean Heart God. Help me to love others like you’ve loved me. Help me to love you more than anything. Because you must increase and I must decrease. Let everything that I do please you. Let me not put you or myself to shame. It is not easy and I cannot do it on my own. I need you each and everyday to get by. Help me to strain my mouth God because I know I be too quick to talk sometimes.

Please protect all my loved ones. All my sisters and brothers in Christ and even those who don’t know you. Bring all your children back home. And I pray everyone encounters you in a different way like never before.
Thank you Jesus.

The Dear God Series

The Dear God Series

I’m going to be starting a new series on the blog titled “Dear God”s

Basically, a couple of contributors are going to be sharing heartfelt letters written to God here.

Why are we doing this?

There is something about our mindset on prayer. A lot of people feel like if you’re going to pray to God, you have to obey a lot of protocol, and use a lot of very official and formal words. We approach prayer and talking to God like we’re speaking to our President instead of to our best friend. But God really is our Friend. He’s our loving Father and so He wants us to speak to Him in that accord.

When you write letters to God, it personalizes everything. Now you’re writing to your Loving Father, to your Best Friend. The words flow out. Sometimes you find that you cannot stop writing.

This is the point of the Dear God series.

Because we are tired of prayers that are only “Forgive me God, I ask you for *insert your latest want here* God, Thank you God.

We we want to go from that to “Dear God, I’ve had an awesome day today. I even met a new friend today, I hope she turns out to be a great person… (and it goes on)

We want to have a REAL conversation. A MEANINGFUL conversation. An INSIGHTFUL conversation with our Father.

 

It is my prayer that God uses this to teach us how to communicate effectively with Him in Jesus name, Amen!
