I came across this letter by chance, and I when I read it, I wept inside. It truly struck my heartstrings when I realized how much time I don’t spend with God. So I wanted to share this in hopes that it will awaken the hearts of others who seem to be drifting along in this chaotic, busy world without realizing how much God wants to be part of their lives. It certainly opened my eyes, and I will strive to do more to strengthen my relationship with Him.
Here is the letter from Heaveninspirations.com:
Inspiring Story: A Letter From God
Inspirational Christian Story
As you got up, I watched and hoped you would talk to 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
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.
There are many opportunities for us to talk with God, but we often believe we are too busy. Whether it be work or school or taking your kids to sports activities, we seem to think there is not enough time in the day to get everything done. But that’s not true. As the poem states, there are plenty of opportunities to spend time with God if we pause a moment and think. Make God your priority instead of Netflix, and you will see just how much more your soul aligns with God and His will. It is a blessing to be loved by Him. And it’s high time we start reciprocating that love back.
Share this with your loved ones.
