Sharing a Letter
Good evening everyone today I will be sharing one of my letters from my book title
100 Letters to God: My Christian Journey in Jesus Christ.
Letter 17: So Far Away
Dear Heavenly Father,
Oh, how do I need thee! How does my soul long for Jesus? Oh, God in heaven I seek You and yet I can not find Thee? Why does God feel so far from me? My yearning grows stronger every day; but God’s spirit, I do not acquire. I do not understand the distance between You and I. Oh my Heavenly Father, where are You? If I stretch my hand forth, will the Lord reach from the Heavens and grasp mine? When I call upon your name, will You lend me Your ear and hear my cries? If I run towards my Savior? Will You welcome me? Oh my God, where are You? I need Jesus so much at this particular time in my life, please do not ignore my call, my heart just won’t rest until I can hear from You. Please God, answer me for Your child requires her Father’s company. Tell me the meeting point; I will be there without delay. I will drop everything at this moment just to feel You. God my day just won’t be completed until I have felt You. Tell me how to reach You? Is it through prayer, meditation, fasting or reading? God. what will lead me to You? Father, open up to me that I may not have this distance between us?
Sincerely Yours, MDR
I wrote this letter at a time in my life when I felt like God was not near, I tried to reach Him and was failing. I then had to decide what needed to change so that I could feel Him near me again. I was desperately needing the presence of the Almighty God. I was failing, life was failing, my faith was failing so this was a cry to God from me.
