I know I had a blessed childhood. I had plenty of everything and yes, I was a little spoiled in the process. My parents provided shelter and encouragement to my spirit. They made it seem like I could do anything I set my mind to! I believed that. I knew I could fly one day!
But my sweet friend I know you did not have the same life experience. You were left as a child and felt unwanted and uncared for. I cannot imagine what that must feel like! I admit, I am unable to empathize with your lot in life. Do not ask me to explain the “why” of it, I can’t. I don’t know why. I did not know you as a child, but I know that you somehow fought your way through and you are now quite successful! You have made some huge life changes that I’m not sure I’d have the courage to make. You see, I was sheltered and I don’t often leave my comfort zone to try to make life better. But you – you are the adventurer and “change” is your middle name!

There’s just one thing lacking in your life, my friend. I want more than anything to introduce you to my Savior, Jesus Christ! I know, you think that my faith is more of a crutch than anything else, but that’s not true. The fool says in his heart there is no God. I have never seen you as a fool, but I know you have done some foolish things. We all have. I’m not judging you! I’m trying to help you. I just wish you would take another look at God’s Word, the Holy Bible. Take a look at John 3:16 and read it very slowly. Absorb every word individually and try to accept what it says to you – what God’s Holy Spirit is saying to you.
I wouldn’t write this if I didn’t care in earnest. I do care about your soul. I care about the rest of your life. I cannot fix the cruelty of the past – I wish I could. God can take your hand right now and make the rest of your life a fine journey if you will just accept His offer of Salvation.
You are the smartest person I know. You have more street smarts than I will ever have because you’ve lived on them. I just want you to know one more thing. I am on the shore. I am praying for you. ❤
