God has a way of rewarding those that keep his commands. I am a living example of one that has been rewarded with a continual commitment to adhere not only to his Word, but also by persistently praying to our Creator.
I have made a daily commitment to writing letters to God to not only keep in contact with my Father, who art in Heaven, but also to prove to myself and him that I can and will not give up on something as important as my need and desire to write. My goal is to become a writer of Christian based material that will help those that just are not getting the relationship that He has promised. The reward will be given in Heaven when He thanks me for giving my time and effort in trying to help those seeking Him.
My faith at times may waver, but this is the whole concept behind unconditional love. By faith I was rewarded with a relationship with a Spiritually grounded young woman who loves me unconditionally. My largest obstacle is the same that many sinners deal with on a daily basis. What have I done to deserve this Angel on Earth? My answer is confirmed by my daily prayer and commitment of purity and obedience. My answer to my prayers came 10 months after I finally decided to do it God's way and not my own. My reward is a Wedding Day of October 7th, 2004.
The most important lesson that I have learned by this modern day miracle is that, with God all things are possible, and by faith these rewards appear as long as we do not give up!
