If Jesus Wrote Me A Letter, What Would He Say?

Source

I remember a time when the WWJD ("What Would Jesus Do?) bracelets were quite popular. I still see them in Christian bookstores. These bracelets would remind the person wearing one that when a decision had to be made, to ask the question, "What Would Jesus Do?"

I have often asked myself the question, "What would Jesus say to me if He wrote me a letter?" The following is my perception of what an epistle written by my Saviour may contain:

"Dear Sparklea:

Do you enjoy getting up each morning? Are you enthusiastic about facing the day? If you are not, I have some wonderful news for you.

I am alive. If you have accepted Me into your life as your personal Lord and Saviour, every cell of your body is absorbing my Light. I am functioning through you.

My radiance requires no effort. As I live through you, your smile will be a magnet to the weary and sad, drawing them to you (Me).

The restlessness you are feeling is not a rut. It is not the weather. You don't need a change. Your frustration does not mean I have deserted you. I want you to realize I have placed you on earth for a purpose. When you were a seed in your mother's womb, I already had a plan for you.

I have given you talent and potential. You know what it is. Inside of you, a dream lies dormant. You want, more than anything, to accomplish this dream. However, you are wasting time by continually putting it off until another day.

Why are you doing this? Are you afraid to take a risk? Has someone told you that you 'cannot?' Do you fear criticism? Have you already made an attempt, failed and feel that you just can't do it?

To you, who are discouraged, feel you are a failure, can never amount to anything nor succeed in that beautiful dream, I have one thing to say. It is the same reply I gave to Joshua on the day that he mourned before Me and fell to the earth on his face in total discouragement (Joshua 7:6):

'Get thee up, wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?

Sanctify yourslef. Get rid of the accursed thing in your midst!'

What is the accursed thing? It is your negative attitude. You are denying My power which permeates your being. You are saying 'I cannot do it' when, in reality, I can do all things through you.

Drop that 'woe is me' attitude. I will never abandon you. Instead of dwelling on your weakness or failure, shift your mind to My strength and power within you.

Stop picturing Me as a meek little man who was totally broken at the cross. I am doing just fine. Even on the cross, I was strong. I never lost My power. I was only doing the will of my Father.

Get your mind off My sufferings and onto My resurrected power. Stop wailing that you owe me so much for dying for you. You do not owe Me anything. I did it all for you. Just relax and let Me live through you.

Trust Me to perform through you. For example if your innermost desire is to be a piano player, start lessons now. Remember that all great musicians started from the beginning, with the first note.

Allow Me to be your life, as you meet the right people at the right time - people who can help you. If you are doing the wrong thing, don't worry. You will know it. That is why you were created with a conscience. While pursuing your goal you will have an inner knowing, the peace and assurance you are headed in the right direction.

Above all, trust Me. Trust Me in your successes as well as your failures. With Me in charge of your life, you will see your failures as positive learning experiences, opening new doors to carry on with the dream I have given you.

Allowing Me to manifest Myself through you is an adventure. You won't have time to dwell on the negative people around you. Rather, you will be too busy, too happy, too enthusiastic. You may be having what appears to be a bad day. However, in the back of your mind you will have the inner satisfaction that you are presently working on your dream.

If you begin each day working on making your dream a reality, you will feel different tomorrow morning. If there are obstacles, I will lead you to ways to overcome them - through an article in the newspaper, magazine, a sentence overheard in a restaurant...you will be amazed at how I can govern the events in your life!

Always remember that I am here, residing in you that you may have LIFE and have it more abundantly!

If you don't know where to start, ask Me. I will answer. I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Spend quiet moments listening to My suggestions. I will give you ideas while you are driving, grocery shopping, ironing, doing the dishes. I am full of wonderful surprises.

I long to be the brightest spot in your life. I only require your acceptance of Me. I long to bless you and be your co-partner in life.

Allow Me to develop your potential. Allow Me to help you fulfill your purpose in life. The very reason I created you was so that you could realize your dreams and desires now, not in eternity.

Above all, stop wasting time.

Let's go!

SINCERELY, JESUS CHRIST"

Blessings to all Sparklea :)

This is a great letter of encouragement and one that points out how we must stop just dreaming and act upon it. I think every morning we should ask "What can I do today that will be a step closer?" I think that we do have to spend quiet moments listening to His suggestions so that we get it right. Thanks for the inspiration!

Sparklea, my friend, you are an outstanding writer. Your letter that Jesus might write to any of us is absolutely on target and emphasizes some of the things we tend to forget or recognized.

Your writings are a blessing to all.

I am slowly catching up on your hubs. I pick one every couple of days to read and am never disappointed. Please do not ever stop.

This is summed up in my wife's remark that said "If I am doing all the good I can, I have no time to do anything else."

Make sure the letter wasn't unopened and marked "Return to Sender."

THANK YOU DANA for your kind words about this hub. I just re-read it, and it was a great reminder for me also. My faith in God has gotten me through a lot in my life, and I hope this letter inspires all who read it. I so appreciate your taking the time to read and comment. I did not know about the award! THANK YOU and God bless, Sparklea :)

Sparklea,

Ran across this today. It was a breath of fresh air and a good reminder. Hub Pages have become very fragmented. There are too many people claiming to be experts in too many field and I am probably as guilty as anyone. It is time to step back and refocus. Thank you my friend, you are indeed a wonderful blessing for us all.
