Dear God. - Poem by Shannon Nicole

Dear God,

I just wanted to tell you that I'm sorry I have never believed in you.
I never did until the day your son helped my mother through it all.
You allowed my father to get through that huge storm near my home.
You helped us through starvation and when money was tight.
Thank you for allowing us to have a wonderful Christmas.

Your words were printed so many times that no one seems to believe anymore.
There are days where everyone is going through hell,
And wonder if you're really there,
Watching over them.

There are Christian families with strong religious beliefs.
My grandfather told me you could help me,
That all I had to do was pray.
Well, God, I'm praying.
Will you answer my question?
Help me get through this peacefully?

Dear God. Thank you for letting me live.

    Your grandfather was right..
    Ask and you shall receive
    knock the door and door shall opened..When father in heaven knows the needs of flying birds, don't you think we are more important to him than birds...Christ....
    A good write........thanks for sharing.......keep up the good work...
