Dear God (Hephzibah)

Dear God
I don’t even know where to start from. I need your help. I need your helping hand in my life and my family. It’s not being easy at all and I know you’ve seen this already. You’ve seen the tears I shed on the inside, you see the way I worry till I fall asleep.
It’s hard for our fees to be paid, for us to be given pocket money.
I love my dad so much, I know how bad he wants to provide all our needs. It pains him that he can’t do that. And my mum, God bless her everyday. She is truly the woman described in Proverbs 31. She will give her life for our sakes.
I think about the things I could have, the nice things I want to have. But then compared to the things we’re struggling with, they are trivial things.
Above all Lord, I am still grateful for life. And I know you’ll still show your hand on our lives. And that our testimonies will come in your time.

Your daughter

Dear God ( Ore. M)

Dear God,

Before I say much, I want to thank you for everything you are to me. You are my friend, my father, my comforter and peace, my joy and my strength. You’re the song on my lips and the Rock I cling to. You really are everything to me.

I know my recent neglect breaks your heart as it does mine. I am sorry. As you know, I’m back home for summer and honestly, it’s been one struggle after another. Countless times my flesh has overpowered my spirit and I know it is as a result of not feeding my spirit. I must admit, my spirit is malnourished and weak. I haven’t been eating and digesting your word which is life to me. I’ve merely tasted it on some days and on other days, I’ve had no appetite whatsoever. I’ve let myself be deprived of my joy, strength and peace that comes from you and created space for anger, worry, pride and the idea of self-reliance to creep in.

When I look at my shortcomings, I want to run and hide like Adam and Eve did in Genesis. But you show me day in day out that you’re having none of that. That you love me too much to let me go. YOUR LOVE AND GRACE SURROUNDS ME ALL AROUND. When I think I’m running away, I find myself eventually running into your always open arms. This holiday our relationship has been one sided and the fault lies with me. I’ve been too silent but I hear you always. You still choose to speak to me, you still use me, you still protect me and shower me with numerous blessings. You’re so beautiful in all your ways.

Oh God, I actually want to just shout to the world how GREAT you are. This holiday has been a sober one for me. I’ve been learning, you are teaching me yourself and sending many of your children to share the knowledge you’ve given them. You’re teaching me that I am a soldier in your army therefore, I’ll always have work to do. A message to deliver, people to help, intercessory prayers to raise and your word to impart. I think what holds me back is the belief that I’m not even there yet so what right do I have to open my mouth. Hearing you tell me over and over again that while I’m working for you, you’re working in me so that my light can shine brighter before men who will in turn give you glory is very comforting. Thank you dear Father.

Relationships have different phases and regardless of how rocky ours may get, you’re still God and you do not change. You’ll never give up on us and you’ll give me the strength to fight for us when I entirely depend on you. Another important lesson you’re teaching me in this period of my walk with you. I forget this so many times and really all I should do when I doubt is to look back and see how good and faithful you are.

Lastly Yahweh, I want to say thank you for changing my circle of friends. Thank you for moving in the lives of people around me and drawing them closer to you. I see you changing hearts and you alone deserves the glory. Thank you for building young men and women who call upon your name day and night and make a daily effort to live for you. I ask that you keep them on your path and you give them everything they need to continually shine for Christ and Christ alone all the days of their lives. I ask that you help us all live for you, to be totally sold out to spreading LOVE (YOU) to the ends of this world so all men may be saved. Thank you for your Spirit in me. I’m hearing your voice louder than ever and fellowship with you is sweet! Oh yeah, thanks for lifting my writer’s block and helping me with the talent you’ve given me.
 

Thanks for always being there. You are my King. I love you Abba.

Ore.

Dear God,
FAT
I don’t know when FAT started to mean the same thing as ugly. I don’t know when it started to mean disgusting. I don’t know.
Am I really that horrible in people’s eyes? but You say I am beautiful. You love every part of me even the whiskers on my face and the fat lumps on my back. You say my body is your creation. I am a piece of Your art.
So why am I so FAT?
I think I’m beautiful too. I just don’t understand why your other creations don’t think the way You do.

Yours forever,
Nini.

Nini, email me. Somto@somtoudeke.com, somtoudeke@gmail.com. I would love to speak to you❤️

Your daughter,

Dear God (Ayo)

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 (Nini)

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.

Dear God (Ugonna)

Dear God,
Haha, I just finished reading the Word and I feel kinda great and I know its You doing it because everything good comes from You.
Ehen! I was gonna tell you about this girl, even though you already know… she’s so beautiful!
I think I like her but I need to chill and come to You first because she may not be what you want for me, because You have set out the best for me. Sha, I believe you’ll speak to me more on this topic.
Oh and by the way, God I want to ask for your help with all my assessments, and that of my family members and friends. For your strength and favour with our results.
Thank you for I know you have already done it!
My day is practically about to start and I know you have given me everything I need to take advantage of it!
Thank you very much Lord!

I love you.
Ugo
