E-mail from God

Hi there! This is an e-mail I've received a couple of years ago and its message is still relevant today. I figured that the sender would be delighted if I share this with you. I hope you’ll make an effort to reflect on what He has to say.

As you got up this morning, I watched you and hoped you would talk to me, even if it was just a few words, asking my opinion or thanking me for something good that happened in your life yesterday – but I noticed you were to busy trying to find the best outfit to put on and wear to work.

I waited again. When you ran around the house getting ready I knew there would be a few minutes for you to stop and say hello, but you were too busy.

At one point you had to wait 15 minutes with nothing to do except sit on a chair. 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 to get the latest gossip.

I watched as you went to work and I waited patiently all day long. With all your activities, I guess you were too busy to say anything personal to me.

I noticed that before lunch you looked around, maybe you felt embarrassed to talk to me, that is why you didn't bow your head. You glanced three or four tables over and noticed some of your friends talking to me briefly before they ate, but you didn't.

That’s okay.

There is still more time left, and I have hoped that you will talk to me, yet you went home and it seems as if you had lots of things to do. After a few of them were done you turned on the TV. I don’t know if you like TV or not, just about anything goes there and spent a lot of time each day in front of it, not thinking about anything – just enjoying the show.

I waited patiently again as you watched the TV and ate your meal, but again you didn’t talk to me.

Bedtime I guess you felt too tired. After you said goodnight to your family you plopped into bed and fall asleep in no time.

That’s okay because you may not realize that I am always there for you. I’ve got patience more than you will ever know. I even want to teach you how to be patient with others as well.

I love you so much that I wait everyday for a nod, prayer or thought or a thankful part of your heart. It is hard to have a one-side conversation.

Well you are getting up again and once again I will wait with nothing but love for you hoping that today you will give me some time.

Have a nice day!

Your friend,
 I hope this post became an instrument to remind you to talk to God (whatever name you call Him). It's easy to forget to pray with all the things that preoccupy us nowadays. But we must remember that prayer is very essential for it's our communication with our Creator. It's a manifestation of our faith and an acknowledgment of our nothingness without His guidance and grace.

May God bless you.
