Dear God

Dear God,

I’m very happy I found you. Before I met you, my life was extremely stressful. I wanted to succeed too much. I thought there were two types of people on this planet: the winners and the losers.

In my head, the winners were those people who were beautiful, strong, talented, and who knew who they were – and where they were going; the losers were those people who were not attractive enough, not smart enough, and with no talent or ambition.

To be honest with you God, I thought beauty, talent, money, and social status were everything. I was looking at actors, singers and performers with much envy. They were attractive, they were adored by many, they were rich, and they were powerful.

What else to ask for?

But you came into my life to teach me something completely different. When I started reading the Bible, I discovered a whole new language:

“So the last will be first, and the first will be last.” – Matthew 20:16

How was that possible? At first, I thought it didn’t make any sense, but then, it hit me: you don’t think like us. You don’t see humanity the same way we see ourselves.

You are looking at us from a different perspective; from the perspective of the Creator of the Universe. You created us, and you know us – but we do not know you.

You came into my life to teach me that love is everything, and without love there would be nothing. The whole concept of existence and life is possible because of love. You are love, and you are life. If I want to keep my life, I need to love you, and follow you.

Humanity is dying : one after the other, Kings, Queens, Presidents, singers, mothers, fathers are getting old or sick, or an accident happen, and they disappear from the face of planet Earth.

This is the only equity for us: we all die.

Nobody is smart enough, or good enough to be immortal on this planet. There is one true person who deserved to live forever and that person is our God, whom was nailed on a cross 2000 years ago.

Jesus, you came into human form to teach us about the only true love that exist: divine love. A love which forgives, and dies to save the life of others; a love which also makes sure gravity exist to keep us glued to the face of planet Earth.

How blessed are we to experience life on Earth, and get to know you?

You are the Creator, and your are the creation.

Who else do we need?

Amen,

  1. This is so beautiful. I loved it. True, pure and loving exexpression of your love for our Father God and His precious only begotten Son Jesus Christ….it brought to my mind Chapter 37 of Psalms, especially verse 4. May Gods blessings be upon you. ♡

  2. It is indeed a beautiful letter to the Creator.

    I, a believer in Christ’s miracles, sometimes think Jesus must be spinning in heaven knowing what atrocities have been connected to Christ-ianity. So many have created God’s nature in their own angry and vengeful image, especially the part insisting that ‘God hates ______’, etcetera. (I personally picture Jesus as being one who’d enjoy a belly-shaking laugh over a good, albeit clean, joke with his disciples, now and then.)

    What angers me is the hypocrisy of those who claim to follow a faith yet practice pretty much its opposite, especially as elected officials/leaders. For example, many conservatives insist upon cutting back, if not ending, the still much-needed COVID government support; yet they equally insist upon continuing, if not increasing, the huge annual subsidies for profitable corporations. I’d suggest they might seek out a faith that’s more reflective of their own true values and behavior.

    Sometimes I wonder whether there are institutional Christians who would prefer that Jesus had not been so publicly contrary to contemporary conservative values thus politics. I can picture them generally finding inconvenient, if not annoying, having to try reconciling the conspicuously contradictory fundamental nature, teachings and practices of the New Testament’s Jesus with those of the wrathful, vengeful and even jealous nature of the Old Testament’s Creator.

    From my understanding, the Jewish people insisted on a messiah whose nature is of the unambiguously fire-and-brimstone angry-God condemnation kind of creator that’s quite befitting of our Old Testament, Torah and Quran. Judaism’s version of messiah is essentially one who will come liberate his people from their enemies, which logically consists of some form of violence, before ruling over every nation on Earth. This Judaic facet left even John the Baptist, who believed in Jesus as the savior, troubled by Jesus’ version of Messiah, notably his revolutionary teaching of non-violently offering the other cheek as the proper response to being physically assaulted by one’s enemy.
