Dear God Letters

God, did you REALLY just do that?


I have been quite for the last few days. I have wanted to shout “Praise God!” from the roof tops but I have just felt the need to be still and seek how to respond with the utmost humility.

Honestly, I have been almost paralyzed wondering if it is all real. Did You really just put all the puzzle pieces together and provide a job in the perfect timing that our hearts desired?

I did.

I am in awe. Frozen. And slightly scared to move thinking I will wreck it all. But on the inside I am filled with non-stop screams of joy. I am unsure of how to properly say thank you.

Thank you works.

This entire process has opened my eyes in zillions of ways. I have seen weaknesses in myself I never knew were there, I have seen strength in my husband that is to be cherished, and I have been blessed by friends and strangers praying. I have also seen the reality of the number of people in our same situation. My empathy extends miles for them. In many ways I don’t feel the slightest bit worthy for the blessing we have been given.

The lessons learned are meant for you. Apply them to your journey and let them be a testimony to the lives that come across your path.

I truly wish there were words more powerful than thank you that I could extend.

But let all who take refuge in you rejoice; let them sing joyful praises forever. Spread your protection over them, that all who love your name may be filled with joy.” Psalm 5:11
