I remember there was a musical entitled Letters to God that I never caught. There’s also a movie (that I haven’t watched) with the same title about a young boy fighting cancer who would send letters to God. By sending those letters to God, he was (I don’t know how or whether it was consciously or unconsciously) helping out his parents, his family and his community.
I don’t think any of these kids have cancer. Reading through this adorable series of letters to God presses the cuteness button in my heart to activate it on overdrive.
I think that this elicits an alarm to my soul to look at how child-like I am in my prayers to God.
Praying is just like sending a simple letter to Him. From a soul to He who is (YHW).
From the Holy Bible, it’s clear how God loves children – His children:
And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
*the same instance this time relegated in Luke’s point-of-view.
Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
Now… enjoy this wonderful series of letters that are so simple. Their simplicity is stripped off of any complicated feeling or event and makes the read a lot more heartwarming:
