Sad letter from God

By Julia Fernandes

I am God….:)..but, you can also call me Abba, Father, Daddy or Papa.  


Yes, I am the same God who created the Heaven and Earth and this whole universe. I AM before time. Nobody can truly comprehend my being in any way. The closest you can come to know me is only through love.


Though I stay in Heaven, my spirit moves around across the whole universe including earth, if only you look carefully. I love earth and all the living and non-living things that I have very lovingly created. Everything is dear to me. The way I gave earth to man I doubt I will ever get it back in the same way. Man has changed so many things that when I look from top I fail to recognize it -- some changes are for good but, sad to say, most are for worst.


You may ask what I do in Heaven. Well, in a day I get thousands of prayer requests and that is enough to keep me busy. I have my hands full browsing through all your prayers. Let me add, I listen to every single, sincere prayer that comes from the heart. I feel thrilled when I have to answer prayers that are identical to the blessings that I want to give. The prayer, then, just becomes a permission I need to expedite my blessings.


But does anybody care to think how tough it is for me to say no to prayers that are not in the best interest of those who ask? You see, I can see the past, present and future. Hence, it becomes so hard for me when I know that what my child is asking is not good for him/her. So, what do you think I do? To protect you, I turn down your requests only so that I can give you the best.


And for doing this I find myself at the receiving end of all sorts of angry outbursts and complaints. I can listen to everything. Not a single thought of yours escapes my attention. Hmmn...just wondering is that really being fair to me? The next time I don’t answer your prayers, please do not rush to get upset with me. I have every good reason for not answering your prayers.


When I get a prayer request for something that I know is wrong, I first ignore it. When the request comes again, I continue to ignore it. But there are some who just cannot take my No for an answer. Finally, the only way I can convince someone that what they have asked for is not exactly the right thing for them is by answering their prayers!


And while we are on prayers, I would like to share this, that among all the prayers the angles come and hand over to me in day, I have to actually ask the angel, are there any thanksgiving or thank you prayers for petitions that I have answered? And you know what; the angels have to search a lot before they manage to find a thank you prayer. 


It would make me happy if the thank you prayers are in proportion to the request prayers that I receive. Did it ever occur to you that the blessings that already exist in your life are the prayers that you never did have to make to me? Few realize this and fewer acknowledge these blessings.


It is a nice feeling to know that I am loved not only for granting prayers but I am loved only because I love you unconditionally. The worst feeling is knowing that people seek me only in times of distress, or view me as some prayer-answering machine or blessing-dispensing person.


Just remember that even I have feelings. So, please do not use me. Remember me at all times, good as well as bad. Take the time to know me. You will be surprised at what you find in me. I can be all to you that you want me to be -- friend, mother, father...


Enough for now. Got to get back to working on loving, protecting and guiding the whole universe.


Blowing kisses and hugs to all of you…




Your Loving Father (God)
