Hi Kel! Thanks for the comment and kind words. I agree, beginning a blank journal page with "Dear Jesus" is a great way to begin no matter what is going on in your life.It opens the flow automatically doesn't it? Writing prayers is a beautiful encouragement later when you see the answer or even the lack of answer turing out to be a good thing!Susie
Hi Kel,As my friend, I know if you've heard me say it once, you've heard me say it a trillion times that writing my "love letters to God" has transformed my relationship with Him. Yes, I write, Dear God (or Dear Jesus), and I pour out my heart onto the pages of my journals, conversationally, in letter form, writing to the Lover of my Soul. These are not ooey-gooey love letters, filled with sacchirine sentiments, but genuine expressions of love and longing, and joy and lament. I write quite a few complaints and confessions as well, because true love expresses all emotions and True Love accepts the outpourings of our heart. i have done this for nearly forty yeras, and my l ife will never be the same. I'm so glad that you are encouraging their readers to journal. *Their* lives will never be the same either!LoveLynni
Susie- I love the truth that having a written record of our prayers can help us better see the answer or accept the lack of answer as a good thing!
Lynni- I love your authentic way of writing letters to God to express all the aspects of your relationship with Him. Readers, check out Lynn's book: Love Letters to God: Deeper Intimacy through Written Prayer.
Oh that is so sweet of you to mention my book. THanks, so much, Kel!Lynni
