Rita stared at the blank sheet of paper. She got up went to the cupboard to get some cookies, even that did not help. She twirled her pen round her fingers, chewed on the covers and her mind was as blank as the paper in front of her. She mused If I am called to write why is nothing flowing, my coach told me to ‘prime the pump’ but it feels like the whole pump needs to be replaced!

She wriggled in her chair, scratched her head and decided to break this habit instead of been frustrated. So she resolved to write something, anything! She had to face this and not run any longer. She remembered that her emails needed to be checked but she knew that would be the ultimate distraction and she would not get anything done. With nothing to write she decided to write a note to God.

You really fascinate me God
What were you thinking of ?
Surely there are others more talented
More organised and more diligent
Are you sure you have made the right choice?

Well you said all things are possible
You also said that you equip those you call
I can surely do all things
So I will stop doubting myself
I guess you know all things so you have made the right choice.

God tell me why do I feel so scared when I should be bold and confident
Tell me how what I write would make impact
There are so many out there.
I do not know all the answers
I will simply do what you tell me to.

My child the problem is;
You think too much when you should simply trust.
Just get on with it and watch me move
When will you learn, this is not about you.

Okay my Lord I will get on with it
I will not pretend I understand
I will lay down my will and embrace your will for me.

Phew! Rita was relieved she got something on paper. She would not break away from the divine plan and let go of the need to figure it out.

I think that writing a letter to God is a great idea for all of us to do! Blessings to you for writing this!
