Thank you. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Words cannot even begin to describe the incredible ways in which you have responded to my last letter and answered my prayer.
I asked for a miracle. I asked to know you, to really know you and you have granted my wish beyond anything I could have imagined. You have shown yourself to me in the most amazing ways, revealing the magnificence of your true nature, and ours.
Since I wrote that letter, you have spoken to me loudly and clearly on numerous occasions. Something tells me you’ve been talking to me for a long time and perhaps it was my readiness to listen that made all the difference. You spoke to me through friends, through strangers, through music and words with an apropos song and a timely verse. Through little signs and messages that were unmistakably meant for my eyes and ears, and through the many offerings of my brothers and sisters who reached out to share their experiences with you and to offer a rope of rescue to a lost soul seeking to find its way home. Yes, you have communicated with me so beautifully and in such a variety of ways that I have no doubt that you are, among other things, a Great Artist.
Most of all, dear God, you spoke to me in the one place I couldn’t deny your presence…in my heart. @ChrisAssaad (Click to Tweet!)
I asked for a personal, direct and intimate connection and you met me all the way. You spoke to me in a language I understand and have always known was my most immediate connection to you…love.
You reminded me that you are always in my heart and that when I listen to your voice within it, I am always guided, supported and provided for. You allowed me to draw on your limitless supply of love in the face of another’s need that was much greater than my own capacity and you spoke to them through me. You rewarded my desire to be of service with courage, compassion and kindness that I didn’t know I was capable of and you showed me just how connected we all are.
You spoke to me and through me and reminded me of the simple and powerful fact that in my heart, I know what is true and I always have. That there are certain things that are beyond knowing and understanding, but that they can always be felt in that place deep within my heart where you dwell and speak to me clearly with love.
Dear sweet Good, I’m writing this letter to thank you with all my heart and soul for your love and your blessings. And to fulfill on my promise to you. I asked for a miracle and you granted me so much more. Now, I am yours. My heart belongs to you and I’m committed to giving my life and all my love to serving the purpose for which you specially created me. To be a soulful expression of your love in the world, to enjoy life wholeheartedly, and to passionately inspire others to follow their hearts home to the place within themselves where you are waiting for them.
I’m writing this letter to you and also to share the gift you have given me with others. To anyone who wants to know you or know you better, I say seek with your whole heart and you will find. Look within. Ask God to reveal himself to you and open yourself to receiving the blessing of Divine presence in and around you.
Look and listen with an open mind and an open heart and you will find everything you were looking for and more, and you will have your own miracle.
Perhaps this message coming to you in this moment can bring you one step closer to really asking and really being ready to receive the answer.
God, I’ve always believed you were real and I am so thankful to know you more intimately and to have this deep connection. I can’t wait to get to know you even better and to co-create this life together. I am yours. I love you.
