Dear God,

You know my heart. You know the love I have for you. You know how much I desire to serve you. So why do I struggle with doing the things that I want to do, but seem to easily do the things that I don't want to do? Paul had this same question to you. I have been to the Cross where Your Son died for my sins. I have prayed and studied Your Word. I have cried out to You for Your Deliverance, yet still I struggle with my own flesh and sinful nature. I know that You have saved me, I know by faith. I know that Your Son's Death and Resurrection are sufficient for my sins and that He sits at Your Right Hand interceding for me. I know that the Blood He shed washed my sins from me. You are Faithful and Just to forgive me when I fail you. Your love surpasses all of my understanding, but I know that You love me and will continue to love me, even when I do sin. I know that it is the sin that You hate, just as I hate my own sin. I love You and trust You with all of my soul.

This reminds me of pages from my prayer journal. It's quite therapeutic for me to pour my heart out to God in a letter. Thanks for sharing.

This is like a modern-day Psalm in prose.

My only critique is that so many of these phrases are familiar to life-long Christians, and that I didn't really get any insight into the writer's unique personality.

However, your tender heart toward God definitely shone through, and I thank you for submitting this heartfelt entry.
