God’s Got You

Dear Someone,

If you are one of those who wakes up every day wishing that a smile will come to you naturally, this letter is for you. I don’t know what’s causing that heavy burden in your heart or why you feel so much tired, depressed, lonely, and unloved. I also don’t know why it seems to you like nothing is adding up but whatever it’s that is causing you to have these bad feelings, rest and know that God is not surprised at your situation. It may not feel like it right now but there is an expected end for you. God will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. Hold your faith in that situation today knowing that help is on the way for you (see Hebrews 13:5).

Let Go And Let God

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you whose love is not accepted, given any attention and being rejected. This letter is for you if the hardest thing in your life right now is letting go of what you thought was real. I know how much you hate long letters and how pressed you are for your time but I wish you would read this.

Be Careful And Think Intently

Dear Someone,

I saw your email and I am so proud of you and what you have reached by yourself. Your perseverance and strength despite problems, criticisms, and gossip are worthy of admiration. Now that you have known how to get ahead and be stronger than ever before, I am writing to you today in a duality of purpose. First is to let you know that every day is a new day with new difficulty and opportunities. Not everything and not every drama around you deserves your time and attention. Times are changing and it has become very necessary that you do whatever you can to live a very good life so that your nights won’t be full of regrets. You have to become careful with what you say because your words have incredible power! Use them right otherwise you will be snared by them (Proverbs 6:2).

Live Mindfully

Dear Someone,

This is my first letter to you this year and by far the longest. You are going to need to read it twice because I want you to stop looking back at 2018 and most especially your life and weeping uncontrollably. I sent you several letters last year reminding you never to let yourself stay sad and to understand that by leaving behind your old self and taking a leap of faith into the unknown, you will find out what you are truly capable of becoming.

Don’t Throw In The Towel

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that is letting a bad breakup cause you to stray away from God. You that’s letting a bad chapter stop you from having a great story. You that’s allowing a bad situation and experience to paralyze you with fear and to define your journey and your entire life.

Breathe and Be

Dear Someone,

I read your email, and I am assuming that you already know why I am sending you this letter. You can’t always wait for the perfect time, or to be perfectly prepared for what doesn’t have your name on it. Sometimes you just have to jump or let go by teaching your heart to accept what cannot be changed. You can’t continue to wait for the “perfect” time to know what’s real. “Perfect” does not exist. It will never come and life is too short to wonder what could have been.

Set Yourself Free

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that’s finding it so hard to leave someone that’s perfectly wrong for you. You that’s finding it hard to leave your abuser. You whose addiction is easier to get but hard to leave. You that has forgotten how to love but remember how to always fight. You that’s tired of pretending, pretending that you are happy even though the pain is killing you silently.

Be Kind To Yourself

Dear Someone,

If you find this letter, it’s for you, you that is trying to heal from something you can’t share or simply have no one to share it with. You that doesn’t know how to heal from something that has damaged you to your core. You that’s unable to take out time to heal from something that has broken you down the most! This letter is for you, you that have spent too many years drowning in sadness because you didn’t feel like you belonged to yourself.

Kindness Matters

Dear Someone,

I hope that you find this letter with a well rested mind, you that have an idea of how everyone you meet should be, you that is always comparing everyone you meet to someone in your past and you that nothing and nobody is ever good enough for you.

Before I get into why I am writing you this letter, I want to remind you that life is not a fashion show, it’s not a dress rehearsal, it’s not a race, it’s not a competition, it’s not a bed of roses neither is it a grocery list. Stop asking everyone you meet about their career, where they work, marital status or if they own a house simply because you see them smiling. Stop asking everyone you meet under the sun what they think of your president. It’s NOT the #1 political story. Stop asking everyone what their grades are because you want to make yourself feel smarter. Stop asking everyone you meet about their love life because you think yours is perfect.

Be True To Yourself

Dear Someone,

This letter is for you, you that can’t sleep, eat, breathe or think — not because you are happy but because you are unable to escape from the hurt in your heart. You that is reading this message and has been desperately seeking for a ray of hope but doesn’t know how long it will take to get your life back. You that have friends but doesn’t have anyone to talk to about the drama that’s going on in your head. You that have become a loner not because you enjoy solitude and not willing to blend with people but because people have continually disappointed you. This letter is for you, you that’s allowing loneliness to become an acid that eats away at you.
