January 1 – Dear God, it’s a new year full of fresh opportunities. There’s nothing that you and I can’t handle this year.
January 3 – Dear God, I joined a gym today. I’m feeling great. I know that I can accomplish anything that I put my mind to doing. This is going to be the best year for me yet.
February 8 – Dear God, I’ve been working hard and it’s paying off. I’m finally on my way to losing this weight. I’ve lost 6 pounds so far. I have a date with someone this weekend that I met online. I can’t wait. Everything in my life is coming together.
March 9 – Dear God, I’ve heard rumors that my company is merging with a larger company. I’m really excited about the new opportunities that could bring.
April 1 – April Fool’s Day. Dear God, I feel like a fool today. I’ve gained back 3 pounds. I had a date last night with someone new from the dating site. I liked him, but he didn’t seem to like me. I can’t say that I blame him. How could anyone find me attractive like this? God, why did you make me this way?
May 3 – Dear God, I let my gym membership expire. It was a waste of money. I never used it. I guess I will always be like this.
May 21 – Dear God, my company’s merger will be happening soon. It seems that some people in management will be leaving. I am sure that I am a candidate for an opening position. I’ve worked hard for a long time for this opportunity.
June 2 – Dear God, I’ve dropped the dating site. I know that it’s hopeless. I think I must be unlovable. I’m still trying to diet. I know that would make a difference in the way men look at me. God, why won’t you take this away from me? How long will I have to fight these battles? How long will I have to be alone?
June 12 – I was fired today. The new company came in and replaced about 60% of our workforce with their own. I don’t understand how this could happen. God, please help me. Don’t you see what is happening in my life? Where are you?
September 3 – Dear God, I know it’s been a while. Things have been tough for me. My savings account is getting low. I haven’t been able to find another job. I’m still struggling with weight and eating. I am so weak. I just can’t seem to get anything right.
September 13 – Dear God, I met some people new people. They knocked on my door one day and invited me to their church. I was apprehensive, but I went. I’ve found some fellowship and faith that I’ve been missing for a while. Thank you.
September 28 – Dear God, my new friends told me about a job. I have an interview scheduled Thursday morning. Please let me get this job. Thank you for the opportunity.
October 15 – Dear God, I got the job and I love it. It’s just an administrative position, but it’s at an organization whose goal is to prevent child abuse. I love being part of their mission. I will get my first paycheck on Friday, just in time. I have eight dollars left in my account. Thank you, God. You are so good. Your timing is perfect.
November 7 – Dear God, the job is difficult some days. The situations that we see are so discouraging. Please pour out your grace on these families. Please use me in any way that you will to bless them.
December 24 – Dear God, thank you for the great sacrifice that you made when you sent your Son to live among us and die for us.
December 31 – Dear Father, you are so good. I know now that you never left me. Your plan is far better than any that I could have imagined on my own. Your love overwhelms me. You have given me opportunities that I would not have sought on my own. You have given me peace beyond all understanding. You have shown me love even though I looked everywhere except to you for it. Thank you for not answering all of my prayers. Amen.
