Dear God... by Ruth Sakstad

Dear God,

Thank you for your love that displays itself in so many different ways to me.

Thank you for your love that is patient with me even when I am not always patient with you or myself.

Thank you for your loving-kindness that you shower on me. Your loving-kindness is better than life itself. It is because of your loving-kindness I am your child.

Thank you for the protection your love provides me. I am glad that you protect me from myself and the enemy.

Thank you for the trust you have placed in me to carry your Word and truth to a lost and untrusting world.

Thank you for the hope your love instills in me. Your hope does not make me ashamed.

Thank you that your love perseveres and never fails through the ups and downs of my everyday life.

Thank you that your love never gives up on me even when I make mistakes or give up on myself.

Thank you that your love will guide me throughout my life and that you will never let me down. You are a great and wonderful God and I praise you for that.

Thank you that you are a God of love and everything that entails.

I love you God.

Love because of Jesus,



  1. Glad you have Jesus in your life.

    Thank you. Love love, Andrew. Bye.

  2. Ruth,

    What a beautiful prayer and picture you've painted of what God's love looks like in your own life.


  3. I so enjoyed reading your words this morning. It reads like a Psalm. Thank you Ruth,

  4. I wonder what would happen if we wrote a letter to God each morning. Maybe I will give it a go! Thanks, for the idea, Ruth. This was a great thing for me to read before I go to bed. I am sure I will reflect upon your words for quite a while. Blessings.

  5. God so loved us that he gave us his only son and much more. Thank you for sharing with us this love letter to God.

  6. I'm grateful for your gratitude Ruth. It's always inspiring to see gratitude in action, because happiness follows.
