To Someone I Love

There are so many things that I want to say.  I love you.  God loves you more.  He has a great and wonderful plan for your life.  He knows, better than I, that you are unique and unrepeatable.  For that reason, I’m so grateful that you are in my life.  What a gift you are!  I could go on and on, but saying all those things wouldn’t accomplish what I desire to accomplish through these words.  I want you to become who God created you to be.  I want you to become a saint!  That’s who He created you to be.  All my encouragement, praises, and platitudes will not do that unless you really believe them, unless they become part of you, unless your life concretely reflects their truth – that is, unless your life concretely reflects Truth Himself.  That’s why I desire to write these words.  I hope that, with the help of God’s grace, these words will become your words, your thoughts, your desires.  Heck, I hope they become mine.  They are not my own.  Ultimately, I’m not really sure how this will go, but just know that this is for you, through someone who loves you, and from the One who is Love!  I trust that He will lead both you and me through this to a deep personal relationship with Him and with one another.  Pray for me!  I will be praying for you.

Let’s cut to the chase.  God is real.  He exists, and He is a personal God.  He wants a relationship with you.  A relationship more intimate than you have or will have with anyone else in your life – more intimate than with your mother or father, your husband or wife, your brother or sister, your son or daughter, or even your best friend.  Think about the person on this planet that you feel closest to.  Imagine what it would be like not to be able to communicate with them, to laugh with them, to cry with them, to ask for his or her advice.  Just imagine how that would be for you.  Do you feel that emptiness – that pain, just from using your imagination?  That’s how God feels when we do not recognize His desire to communicate with Him, to cry with Him, to receive His advice.  Our relationship can and should be more intimate than all of those other relationships combined.  Unlike any of those persons, He lives inside of you and is always available to you.  He knows all things.  He knows us better than we know ourselves – who we love, what we’re afraid of, our hopes, and our dreams.  He wants to give you the desires of your heart, but first He wants you!

I can understand your questions.  How do I know that he is real and that He loves me?  I’ve never seen Him.  I’ve never touched Him.  I’ve never heard His voice.  That is what I hope the remainder of this writing helps you with.  Because I believe that you have seen Him; you have touched Him; you have heard His voice.   Just like most people, you haven’t recognized Him.  I didn’t recognize Him either, but, in looking back, He was always there, offering Himself to me.  With you, He has always been there too, and He continues to offer Himself to you now.  He is wherever you are right now, longing to become your best friend, your confidant.  My desire lies in helping you to recognize Him, to see Him, to touch Him, to hear His voice.  Please bare with me.  I will keep these entries short.  I want you to know Who I know. I want you to know that He loves you.  I want you to live an extraordinary life.  I want you to be happy.  That’s why I write these words. I pray they hit the mark.  I love you.
