God, Iíve got something on my mind. I was thinking about me being a mom and all. See, hereís the thing: How am I supposed to fix my kid when Iím a broken mess? How in the world can I help him figure it all out-when I burn from the inside out? Iím so tired God. Iím worn out from years of hurt and pain, and I really donít want to talk about it. Now I have this boy and heís feeling my pain-and his on top of all that.
Tell me God-how do I make it stop? How do I stop my pain from spinning out of control? How to I stop crying inside for a child I canít fix?
Today, I crawled in bed and shut my door. Sometimes itís just easier to dream about beautiful places and people I have never met. When I wake up everythingís the same. Itís me in the mirror-every time.
I look at this beautiful child you entrusted me to raise. I have only one question. Why me God? Why did you give me such an awesome giftÖknowing how messed up I was? How much more pain must I unravel until itís done? I am trying here God. I am trying to help my boy with his pain, but I canít- Iím having a hard time dealing with mine.
I just kissed my little boy good night God. I laid down next to him just so I could listen to his heart beating. His body was warm and he was tucked safely under his covers. His room was quiet and a peaceful silence filled the air. It must have been you that felt so calming. You must have been the reason why I had a moment of peace in my scattered mind.
ďI think you should know that I am with you ...all the time. I am glad that you felt some peace tonight. I also want you to know that I am working full time on fixing you and mending your brokenness. OhÖand as to why I gave this baby to you- even in your brokenness you chose to love him! Love is enough to fix anythingÖeven you! And donít worry about fixing him-thatís my job! ď
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Another excellent article Suellen. My only suggestion would be to break between your "letter to God" and His answer back to you with maybe a "Dear Child" or "Dear Suellen" as preface.
Suellen it is with great pleasure I have watched you grow as a writer and I hope you will continue to share your ups and downs with your readers. You have a way of touching us with your heart and what a gift that is!
