If you could write a letter to God what would you ask him? Would you ask him for help in a certain situation in your life? Would you ask why certain things happen or are allowed to happen? Give me your thoughts on this if you want, since I am curious. God is the reader of your heart, mind, and spirit. He reads your thoughts and he loves you very much. He tries daily to reach out to you, even if you wish not to seek Him. So if it may take a letter rather than a prayer, it can work.

Hello Together, if I could write a letter to God, my one thing I would ask, would be that I be forgiven of all my sins, and know in my heart that God had accepted me. I have prayed and ask forgiveness, but my prayers seem to be in vain. I will keep trying though, and with people like you, Jennifer Laten, and Bible girl 2 praying for me, maby I will succed

You have already been forgiven by the Father as long as you pray in Jesus name. I don't necessarily want to influence all my beliefs on you, but feel that the book Steps To Christ would take away so many of your doubts in your prayers being heard. No prayer is ever in vain. It seems that way, because it somtimes takes awhile to receive an answer. Joseph was sold by his brothers into slavery and he wa imprisoned later on,because a high member of royal staff maybe Pilate (his wife) wanted Joseph and he said no, so se accused him of rape. Joseph being the favorite child of the father had to humble himself in the situation he was in as my pastor tells us. Sometimes prayer feels foreign in the heart and like a muscle it must be exercised daily. If we don't pray everyday, it seperates us from Him. As Ellen White once said, "Prayer is te opening of the heart to God as to a friend. Not that it is necessary in order to make known to God what we are,but in order to enable us to receive Him." "When Jesus was upon the earth, He taught His disciples how to pray. He directed them to present their daily needs before God, and to cast all their care upon Him.And the assurance He gave them that their petitions should be heard, is assurance also to us".

Continuing with Ellen G. White(not to be confused with the Light)"Jesus Himself, while He dwelt among men,was often in prayer. Our savior identified Himself with our needs and weaknesses, in that He became a suppliant, a petitioner, seeking from His Father fresh supplies of strength, that He might come forth braced for duty and trial. He is our example of all things. He is a brother in our infirmities,"in all points tempted like as we are;" but as the sinless one His nature recoiled from evil;He endured struggles and torture of soul in a world of sin. His humanity made prayer a necessity and a privilege.He found comfort and joy with His Father".

Our heavenly Father wants to give you all of His blessings! Ellen White has written a beautiful book and it helps fill in any potholes as I say(misunderstandings of God's nature, the priveledge of prayer,) and our church would like to mail you Steps to Christ(which is where I was getting this information from), if you will go back to the Any believers in Jesus out there forum, but only if you want to take advantage of this opportunity. One time I talked to the morons (before I was converted)and they wouldn't leave me alone and stop coming to our house, until my husband had to tell them straight. So I don't push or throw anyone out in front of a train!

If I could write a letter to God I would tell him how sad I am , because everyone on this forum has turned away from Him from what I see for the most part. Everyone on here seems to entertain themselves and be pleased with hating and bashing others (illegal immigrants, politicians, complaining about certain individuals in their own town) just to name a few examples of the hurt I see. People go as far as to call our solidiers that defend our freedoms murderers when they are doing their sworn duties. I came to this forum to try to instill your good Lord and to teach and everytime I see all this cesspool of hatred I feel like I am in the mist of Sodum and Gomorrah. It makes me feel depressed, but as your Christian solidier I know you have given me a purpose and I must journey forth. Is anyone out there really getting any benefit from this other than one person? Maybe one person is all I need! Maybe that one person is my joy as long as they return. Thanks God. You always know how to make me feel better just by listening to me and not giving up on me.

I would ask God, if he was so great and all, why did he create an imperfect human race. I guess he's not as awesome as you all think. What a joke "God" is. Please quote me some scriptures on how it's all man's fault and not the allseeing, almighty God. LOL tools.

bible girl 2, I feel your sadness too, and I owe you and together acheiving more an apology. You have been there for me and I never have once been there for you. If you remember, I was very much in need of prayer and support. I didn't think I was a true believer and if you will remember I was filled with hate, and anger. You stayed on this forum and supported me, and even though I have a long way to go I have made progress, that I probbly would not have made if it hadn't been for you. So I am one person that you have helped, and I am sure there are others, even if they haven't let it be known. I do go through the other forums and I see some of the things you have mentioned, and yes there are some that seem to take pleasure in offending and hurting people like your self and also to people that want to do better. I feel though, that sometimes people just want to have their opinion noticed, and I don't have any objection to that as long as they do it in a civil and respectable manner. One that comes to mind is Don White, which you responded to. He seems to be very angry, but I noticed he didn't use any derogatory or abusive language like some do. On that paticular forum, you said that you would not be on that forum again, and even though I symphitise with you I hope you reconsider. You showed me where that anger can destroy you if you let it, and I believe that you may be able to help him see that too. I had a thought onthat and I want to see if you agree with me? Anger in itself is not wrong, but what you allow that anger to do may be. Jesus him self was angry when he destryed the temple where there was things happining that certainly was not pleasing to GOD. You may be angry with Don, but again I think he didn't really mean to be disrespectful to anybody, just dissagreeable. Again I want to thank you girls for supporting me and I can assure you that you have done a lot of good. I feel confortable now saying GOD BLESS YOU

He gives every human being the power of choice even if they choose to use it foolishly , like you might wish to.

It isn't really that I was so much angry with Don, but the topic was starting to annoy and angerme. You see I didn't give up on Don as a person, but I did give up on the topic as you can get too lost in a topic and too far away from God.I needed to clear my head and discern or weigh out the truth of the matter. What was more important to the Lord. I said everything I could really say on the topic before it became offtopic as I can have a bad habit of doing if I am not careful.

If I could write a letter to God, I would ask Him : Why does my mother delight in hurting me constantly? Why doesn't she love and accept me for who I am? How come she likes me least of all when I try to help her most of all? Why does she not want my son around? Why does she treat my husband like an enemy when she treats my sister's boyfriend like a king? Why does she lie to me all the time and break my heart into pieces? Sometimes I wish I had a mother who truly loved me. Why do I have to bear this pain and shame alone especially right before mother's day? Please dear lord help me through this grief and pain that this consuming my heart, as it is a weed, and it is choking the life out of me. It is a weed that seperates me from your heavenly garden. Amen.

Here is what Anna wants to say to you together achieving more:Nothing can seperate us from the LOVE of God. You are imploring God to give you peace, that peace that surpasses all understanding.
HE heres you and feels your pain. He wants you to know His Peace.

Perhaps reading Psalm chapter 37, and John 14:25 through 27 and John Chapter 15: 18 through 25. Ephesions chapter 6: 10-20, Philipians 4: 8 through 13.

Hearing God speak to you comes in many forms. Sometimes by reading his word and finding those words that address your request
can be very enlightening, speaking to your Pastor, talking with a very trusted, Godly, Wise, compassionate friend, listening to others when they are in distress.

You are not alone, there are folks in the bible who dealt with depression.
This text I used to read a lot when I was in deep distress and depression: Psalms 69 An urgent plea in time of trouble:
Davids words helped me to express myself and to get me out of my self as I saw that even the Prophets and Kings went through grief, distress and depression.

Psalms 6 has also been my refuge in times of anguish, sadness, the words so much expressed my feelings. In my many years, I have also experienced many, many times like these. The older I grow the more I am able to let God take over my head and heart. But that has been because of God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus that I have been able to sort these types of things out. Having Godly friends, taking advantage of professional counselors, taking some meds has also helped.
Please let me know if any of this is or will be helpful. I am glad to send more later on tonight.

God Loves you and so do I- If you were my child- I would tell you how much I love you, and show you and let you know how much God loves you. Evil exists because of sin, because we all have a free will.
I'll send more later on tonight.

blessings of God be with you , love, Anna

Courtesy of S. Breedlove I post this as a gift to all mothers for a belated mother's day. Mothers are important everyday and we need to remember that because so much is riding on their shoulders. They sometimes feel like they have the whole world in their hands, if you know what I mean.

Dearest Mother,



I have entrusted to you the greatest missionary work possible. I have committed to your care a very sacred charge saying,“Take your children, train them for Me. Give them a character polished after the similitude of a palace that they may shine in the courts of the Lord forever.”



I know that at times your work seems very unimportant and sometimes it is not appreciated as it should be. Few realize the load of care and burdens that you carry. Your days are filled with a round of little duties all calling for patient effort, for self-control, for tact, for wisdom and for self-sacrificing love. Many times you become weary and perplexed as you have tried to speak kindly to your children keeping them happy and busy, guiding their feet in the right paths.



You have done your best and when you have erred, I have forgiven you. Then as your sons and daughters are grown, they may choose for a time to go their own way, but be patient with them and learn to love them as I love them. Pray for them without ceasing. There is much power in prayer.



The mother of Augustine prayed for her son’s conversion. She saw no evidence that her prayers were being answered, but she did not become discouraged. She knew her God and kept right on praying, placing her finger on the text and presenting to Me My own words. I heard her prayers and gave to her the desire of her heart...I will do the same for you today. 5T322.



Claim each promise for your children. Place your finger on the texts presenting to Me My very own words. There is power in My word. Power greater than anything you have ever witnessed. If you are faithful to Me, I will be faithful to you and will work mightily in behalf of your children.



When you are tempted to become discouraged, I will send the Comforter to you to bring back to your remembrance My words. He will encourage you and will assure you that in the end all things will work out for good. I will help you to look away from the darkness and gloom of the present moment to the glorious fulfillment of each promise. Be certain that I will always be by your side to help you.



And remember, no missionary work at all can equal yours in importance. You have not like the artist, to paint a form of beauty upon canvas, nor like the sculptor, to chisel it from marble. You have not like the author to embody a noble thought in words of power, nor, like the musician to express a sentiment in melody. It is yours, with My help, to develop a human soul in My likeness! MH377.



Keep your eyes fixed daily upon Me so that whatever you do you will reflect My love. Seek Me earnestly with all of your heart.“And all things whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” Matthew 21:22.



Have a very Happy and Beautiful Mother’s Day.



With all My love,



Your Heavenly Father

Courtesy of S. Breedlove is this darling piece. What do you do if it doesn't apply to your life, though? I guess pretend it does?
Or do I remember a person in my life that once loved me like a mother that is no longer here. I don't know. I'm trying to find forgiveness for my mother and she told my eldest daughter( after she started a fight on the phone with me) to tell me that I held a grudge. How am I holding a grudge when everytime I try to forgive her she tries to hurt me even more? But anyway, here is that wonderful piece about mothers no matter who they are.
To Mother
For Jean Scully

I call you mother, I'm your child,

My infant joy was when you smiled,

And though you taught me what to do,

'Twas not your words,...I copied you!

Now you are old and growing frail,

We mostly talk by phone or mail,

But when I doubt or have no clue,

I think about, and copy,...you.



God grant that I should ne'er forget

My mother's grace and love, my debt:

To share with grandkids what you knew

So they, through me, may copy you.



Then when at last before God's throne

We stand, and know as we are known,

We'll thank Him for a guide so true

If we, dear Mom, have copied you.

--Kathleen McCurdy

Together, I feel your pain. I know you invited her to church and to that church function when we seen the movie UP and had pizza and she said she would think about it, but in reality that was her way of saying no, wasn't it? It is not like you haven't made efforts. Even after she hurts you so bad, together, why do you act like, it doesn't phase you? Why do you talk to her 15 minutes later when she calls? Why don't you at least say what you did really hurt me? Why aren't you honest with her?

Ever since I was a child I could never share my feelings with my mom. When I moved out, I tried to once, and she turned the whole situation around on me and tried to talk about something painful that happened to my sisters in my stepdad's care that I didn't want to remember and then she said," See it didn't happen, did it?" From then on, I hold a lot on my feeling in even try to hide them from my husband when two years ago or so, I was so depressed, I cried every night for about a month, and he got irritated about it. I went to the doctor and it got fixed. I hold a lot in like a sponge and now don't know who I can much trust. At least on here, people don't know who I am, and that is what makes me feel safe. And on the same token, I can help others and not wrongly judge them, because I don't know them and I can't see them which gives me an advantage to help them. By not knowing them except by what they say to me, then I can properly judge them by praying to God for insight. A lady at church told me I was wrong to even be trying to help people this way and said I shouldn't do this anymore and it kind of bothered me too.

I got an answer concerning whether our forums are wrong together, as I know it would eat you up inside as that is what kind of person you are. You try to please everyone too much, but fear not. Help is on the way.
I think your Forum is a great way to take advantage of todays tecnology to reach those who would otherwise not be reached. Wonderful Blessing from God and we are excited to seeing you inniate this blessing.
Age in people does not equal Maturity, unfortunetly. Even the bible tells in places that some have to be given milk instead of meat because they have not grown in spiritual maturity.
I think this is a wonderful ministry you have and I have told many people about it already. In lebanon and here in St. Petersburg.
Keep up the good work.
Blessings, Anna

If you hear it from Anna, you know you have done right, because she speaks the truth, and is a highly God fearing woman, together. So please hold on and keep it together. Keep in the faith, sister. I will be praying for you.

Anna must have talked to this person you spoke of and it isn't as bad as it seems and this is what was said:---------

One of the members said the same thing to us but we assured her this was a wonderful ministry and we supported and encouraged and offered our help.
Many others think this is wonderful!
I am so very pleased that one or two of your writers or more have been blessed by your forum. I know I am blessed by it and continue to tell others how great an idea it is!
That member may just be being overly cautious since some folks we have heard in the news about were very much adversley affected because of nasty, cruel, mean things were said to one individual who was too young to be hearing or reading such evil.
We say keep up the good work, God is WITH YOU and so are we.
Blessings, Anna
Don't worry. Be happy!
