Does the following letter remind you of any time you may have had similar thoughts?

“ Dear God,

I am sure that you know I am writing this to you. It is known that you exist in many forms and have many names but I think basically you are ONE who runs the whole world. Some persons do not believe you exist but when they are in deep trouble most of them do utter your name in one way or the other. You are aware of all that goes on. It is said that you know what is best for everyone but how come that you deny basic happiness to someone though it is good for one? You are said to test each of us by making us go through some rough time but I am sure you also know how far can one take that stress and when it goes beyond how come you do not send any relief? We know that our actions are controlled by you and it is said that we are penalized for our sins by making us go through tough times but why so as those actions of sin are also scripted by you, isn’t it? Come on God, I know you are smiling at my ignorance but don’t you think that we the puppets in your hands wonder at times as to why does one go through rough times? I know that you reside in heart of everyone of us and then you must be aware of our heartfelt wishes. Then how come you ignore sincere prayers from heart for some happiness? I know you may be very busy in your work but you also have superpowers, so please do listen to someone who is at wits end and may be he or she is keen to be recalled.

Waiting for your mercy,

Your follower ”

by recalled you meant called back to Him?
if yes then felt so once and felt guilty for feeling so too :)

Totally agree with this letter. I'd love to be a positive person, believing in & praying to God, but I really can't ignore all the bad things happenning to really good people around me.. Why all this sufferring?
Again like the letter, when people say it's punishment for our past sins, I don't get it.. Everything we do or are forced to do is God's will, right?
it's been some days since I prayed, now I just thank whoever or whatever makes me happy :)

I wish we get the answers to these questions!

firefly said...

Rià said...

I wish we knew the answer to that...there is so much suffering around and there's nothing that we can do about it...except praying.

Jack I don't know whether you have read these books : Conversation with God (1, 2, 3)by Neale Donald Walsch.
Many years ago I came across his book the first one and it literally changed my very perspective of life, went on to read the other books/parts too. Totally impressed by his writing. If you have not read it, do the read the 1st part.Most of my doubts were cleared by reading his books.

I have wrote so many letters to God and got reply back too but it took so much time for God to reply back and still waiting for some answers ! Keep trusting him and have faith in GOD.

every blogger always has a 'Letter to God' post written always:)
It's like we feel completely hopeless about our surroundings and its unjustified ways...yes i too will sign below your letter, uncle!

Harman said...

Amen to all that!
too good beyond words ..!!

Purba said...

He puts us through misery so that he can hear us say - Oh God!

Ann said...

yes.. these thought come very frequently to my mind when I see others suffering or when I myself is in any trouble.. but with time, I think we all accept any kind of injustice on the name of destiny.. that's the only way I think as few things are not in our hands..

Saro said...

Jack, I've nominated you for a Liebster award. You'd then need to nominate some people and some other steps, that are on my blog post :) Congratulations!

Dear God..
at the end we say Ohh my God.

Dear Jack,

Your letter has touched my heart. I am sure that God has read it and his heart touched as well.

We think as we are...puny mortals. As such we see life, understand it, experience it, relate or react to it just as we are.

This is no surprise to God. The reason why your letter does not anger him. In fact, he understands it all. Yet whether we understand it or not he will still allow the tests of life.

Because like it or not it is in these things that we are shaped .. molded .. conformed .. into the persons we were meant to be in the first place. That was before we took the exercise of the 'free will' into our puny hands.

Through difficulties we are shaped and grow into maturity, greater faith, become stronger, have sturdier hope. In short, like gold is tested in fire, we come out of our difficulties as better human beings. That by all means is by God's design.

Blessings to you, my dear friend.

P.S. Write him more letters.
