If God Emailed Us... By Nina Keegan-Owens

If God could penetrate all of our modern social medias and technologies that we have today and text us, send out a tweet, or email us, what do you think He would say to us?

I do not begin to think I could ever really know what the heartfelt words of our Lord and savior would be but perhaps, you can imagine with me for a moment that His email to us would sound some thing like this.

My dearest sweet children,
Oh how I love you all, you are all so very special to me, each uniquely wonderful. I have made each and every one of you with special gifts and purposes that are yours alone. I love watching over you all with joy each and every day. I laugh with you and I cry with you. I share every moment whether joyful, sad, triumphant, worrisome, fearful or blissful with you. You are my children and I do not want to miss a thing.

Many of you wonder where I have been, you ask why I seem so distant. Please don't ever for a moment think I am not right by your side. I am always there, lifting you up and holding you in my righteous right hand. I have sent my angels to surround and protect you. They stand guard over you and your families. I have given you my word and amazing promises to follow to help you through any trial that comes before you.

Last week when you were late for work and were recklessly racing through traffic, I was in the passenger seat keeping you safe as you traveled. Did you not hear me when the good news came in from the doctor's office that all the test results were fine? That was me that protected your child and kept them from getting hurt on the play ground. It was me that gave you a better job when you lost the last one and were so worried. I was gently guiding you when you were tempted to make wrong choices and didn't. I have been your hope when all seemed lost. I was the comforting visit from a friend that you received when you were down. I was that random person that payed you a compliment and made you smile. I am the soft breeze you feel on your cheek every morning when you drink your coffee on the back porch. I am in the flowers, the trees, mountains, lakes, rivers and on the beautiful beaches I have given you to enjoy. I am the sweet whispers of your dreams that lull you to sleep at night. I am in the laughter of a child that warms your heart. I am your comforter, your healer, your friend, encourager and your father I am all things to all of you. I have always been right there. I am what you need when you need it most.

Perhaps , you have been to busy to notice me or to even care. Maybe the complaining you do or the negativity in your life prevents you from hearing my voice and feeling my presence. Maybe it's the unforgiveness and anger in your soul that causes you to miss out on my abundant blessings for you. Do you give ungrudgingly to my children in need? Have you hardened your heart toward me and refuse to turn from your sinful ways? Are you trying to do everything your own way while ignoring my gentle nudges to keep you on my path?

It makes me sad to see you hurting, gossiping, angry, jealous and feeling sorry for yourselves. It is not my plan for you to live a defeatest life.

I sent my only child to die an unthinkable death for you to have joyous lives filled with peace and infinite blessings. There is so much you are missing out on by not handing all of these burdens over to me. I want to relieve you of all of these sufferings, but you see I can only be what you invite me to be. I am not a pushy God, you need to choose me first. Call on my name, and seek me first. Oh how I long to be in your hearts. I long for a close, personal relationship with every one of my children. I am standing there right by your side longing for you! Invite me in. I long to perfect all that concerns you. I will give you a new life. A life centered on me will be like nothing you have ever experienced before. I will meet you right where you are. Nothing you have done can make me love you less. I simply cannot love you any more than I do right now. We can conquer it all together if you would give me a chance. I am a jealous God and I want nothing to ever come between us. I long to be the most important part of your world. I have so much to tell you and so many wonderful plans for you. I do not want you to miss one single blessing that is awaiting you.

Please let go of all these petty things that keep a distance between us. Drop these trivial things that keep you from living your best life. Forgive others as I have forgiven you and come away with me. Leave this worldly stuff behind.You see none of it is important. Your relationship with me is all that matters. Please trust me. Lay it all down. I promise I will never leave you or forsake you.

Together we can make this world a better place. People will see your light and your salvation. They will notice my presence in you and long to live in that same peace. The world should live together in love and stop the wide spread suffering. Please send news of me to my children that do not yet know me. Be my ambassadors on earth and lead my people back to me. I will look for you everywhere. I am in the face of the lost souls, the hungry children, the lonely and the oppressed. Do not ignore me or turn from me. Please once and for all, seek diligently my kingdom. I will seat you at my table and tell you great and mighty things that you do not yet know. I will heal my people's hearts, bodies and souls. I will love you with a love that is beyond anything you have ever known.
Do not forget me. I am everywhere you are. Call to me! You are like precious jewels to me. My beautiful children!

I am sending my Son back soon to redeem you for all eternity. Please be ready, willing and waiting with your hearts on fire with love for me. I love you all with an everlasting love. Blessings and peace to you all!

Your heavenly Father,
