Dear God

Dear God

I'm not a christian nor a catholic, in fact i'm not part of any religion.  I wan't born into a religious family, I think they're anit religious, and I spent years believing that you really didn't exist.  Then there was a phrase when I was about 10 where I used to talk to you in my head and I always felt as if you were listening. I spoke to you all the time about everything and you must have found it tedious at times.  I always felt there was a presence and that there really was someone listening.  I was always filled with warmth after I had spoken to you.  and then I slowly I stopped Praying, I stopped talking to you as I grew older.   i've never been to church, i've never read the bible.  I don't know the laws of religion or the rituals.  When I was about `15 I was questioning life and began to believe you were there.  I was old enough to make my own decisions and did not follow my parents belief.  I did believe in you and once I tried to go to church.  I wasn't allowed to be blessed because I wasn't a member of the church, I walked out feeling guilty and ashamed,    did believe in you but I was never christianed,  I started praying again, but I never really feel like I should be doing it because I'm not a member of a church or religion.   I love God and the things that he has taught people about love, and kindness and goodness.  I'm sorry that I didn't believie in you at one point in my life... i'm sorry for those times when I cursed you for the things that went wrong in my life.     I'm glad for the way that you made me, it has taught me so much, I like being a little different from everyone.  It has taught me the values of life, of friendship, of looking beyond looks, everything. 

Thank you God, 

I'm sorry I'm not part of any religion, and I hope that one day I will be.  i'm scared that because I haven't joined a part of your group that i wont be considered worthy enough to go to Heaven.   They say those people that aren't chrisitan or catholic ot whatever will be condemmed to hell.         Does that include me?  I do believe in you, but is this enough...

It says in the bible, if you believe in it that is, that the ones who thought they were first in line to go to heaven will be the last, and the last shall be the first to enter...I am serious Kitty. God does not want you to be part of a group, god wants you to be yourself. This is a letter full of heart, sadness and hope. Thank you for sharing.

First of all, we don;'t know if God is a He or a She or even either, we just use He, because it makes it easier. There's no point in saying God each time we want to talk about him. And yes He is watching your every move, might be hard to believe but He is. That's how He knows when you've sinned or done something good. He watched everybody, everydau, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. And there is nothing funny about a man being poor, nothing at all.

Apparently you're so poor you couldn't even afford the "s" that was supposed to go at the end of "hurts".

I wish I could give you an answer, but sometimes even those people who have done all but good things in there life don't go to Heaven, just because of there last moment. Everybody I know says the things you do in life has a factor, which I believe as well, but they also say the last minute of your life has a lot to do with whether you'll be in Heaven or Hell. And you have alot of time to choose a religion you want and believe in.

No worries, God doesn't forget anybody. and He is watching over you.
