Letter From God

It's Tuesday, my special day to enjoy my Coffee in a Teacup.

It's a beautiful morning and I'm loving my coffee in a teacup!  Pictures are from the internet today, I just let time get away from me and didn't get any pictures of my own.
Letter From God

Good morning,

As you got up I watched and hoped you would talkto me. Just a few words, such as thanking me for something good in your life yesterday or last week would do.

But I noticed you were busy selecting the right clothes for work. I waited again to hear from you. When you ran around the house collecting papers, I knew there would be a few minutes to stop and
say hello, but you never slowed down.

I wanted to tell you that I could help you accomplish more than you ever dreamed possible if you would just spend some of each day with me.  At one point, you waited fifteen minutes in a chair with nothing to do. I waited to hear from you.

Then I saw you spring to your feet; I thought you wanted to talk to me, but you ran to the phone and called a friend. I watched as off to work you went and waited patiently all day long to hear from you. With all your activities you were too busy to talk with me.

I noticed at lunch you looked around; maybe you just felt embarrassed to talk to me. You glanced three tables over and noticed some of your friends talking to me before they ate, but you wouldn't.

There was still more time left, and I hoped that we would talk. You went home and had many things to do.  After they were done, you turned on the TV; just about anything goes there and you spend many hours watching. I waited as you continued watching TV and ate your meal but again you wouldn't talk to me.

At bedtime you were totally tired. After you said good night to your family you plopped into bed and fell asleep. I had so much wanted to be part of your day. We could have had so much fun and accomplished so much together.

I love you so much that I wait every day for a thought, prayer or thanks. Well, maybe tomorrow! I'll be waiting.

Your Friend,

God

How many days, how many times has this happened?  So many people go through life without talking to God daily. 

Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.
James 4:8a

  Nearness to God comes from a personal relationship with Him,  a personal relationship comes from talking with Him ~ it's called, Prayer.


Until Next Time
((hugs)) and Blessings!

  1. Oh, how often I put other things before spending time with the Lord. I know that hurts His heart. :( I sometimes think I need a fast from social media. It does take up way too much of my time. Thanks for the gentle reminder, sweet Friend.

  4. Thank you for this reminder. It is so easy to fall into bad habits of forgetting to talk to God before meals, throughout the day, when we get too busy. But I try to give Him praise everytime I look outside, or see a bird in flight or a flower blooming. Praised Him for the rain the other day, and for the sunshine and sunrise this morning. Thank you for being one who encourages us to remember to stay in touch with our Savior. Blessings to you my friend.

  8. Mary, I have been thinking the same thing, especially since I'll be having surgery in April. I do spend too much time on the computer and not enough time drawing near my Lord.
    Have a great day.
