Day Six: Dear God~


Dear God~

are the first words I write on my computer this morning

in a letter to God~

to clear my head and my heart

to make room room for Him

and then

it happens~

I get distracted.

Because

I see the screen of my last visit…

Amazon Prime~

Christmas shopping.

So immediately

I put

God

on hold,

as my brain gets stolen

by one little distraction

because it so much

easier to push

“deliver tomorrow”,

with a sense of accomplishment~

immediate gratification~

instead of

going to

God

first

to see what

He has for me

this morning.

But deep in my heart

I question Him~

Will He speak to my heart?

Is He listening?

Does He care?

Have you ever questioned God?

Well I do

when

I can't feel Him

when

I can't see Him doing what I want Him to do.

So this morning

I purposely distracted myself

But,

because of

God’s Grace,

He will let me believe

what I want to believe &

He will even allow me to go to

Amazon,

again and again,

to continue shopping~

yet I still sit in angst

because

I know that

He does have something to say to me right now,

as

He gently whispers to me

to

Come to Him,

and to

Be Still and Know.

So I come & I ask

Him

what I have been asking

Him

since December 1~

Who is This Baby

And God answers me

And God answers you

Because

God

first answered the

cries of the world

in a way that made no sense for many

by sending

A Baby.

It would have been much easier if

God

sent a Man dressed in a purple robe

with a crown on

His head,

standing 8 feet tall,

casting a glow

who would speak one word that would

transform the world back into

the Perfect Garden

that it once was~

Perfect Paradise

for all to live.

Then

all would have believed.

But instead,

God sent

A Baby~

An innocent

Little Baby

Whose first words were a cry

that changed the world~

A cry to answer all our cries.

God

did have something to speak to my heart,

in the wee early hours this morning

and

He waited~

in the midst of my

being distracted.

And

once I closed out

Amazon

to write

Him

a letter filled with my cries

He answered.

He waited~

because

He wanted to answer my letter to Him

and

He delivered quicker than

Prime.

He gave me all of Him

because

I gave Him all of me.

And

that my friends is the best gift I could ever receive.

So I ask you~

What are you waiting for?

What do you want for Christmas?

Instead of a

Dear Santa letter,

write a

Dear God

letter~

Because

He waits

He reads

and

He answers!

Because

Who is This Baby~

the One who was born to reconnect us back to the God who hears~

"I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God

so that you may know that you have eternal life.

This is the confidence we have in approaching God:

that if we ask anything according to His will,

He hears us.

And if we know that

He hears us—

whatever we ask—

we know that we have what we asked of Him.

I John 5:13-15
