I finally wrote God a letter.
I do that when I get so stuck on an issue that I can’t pray uncluttered.
I didn’t mail the letter.
But I’m pretty sure God received it anyway.
Because he keeps answering me back.
He’s letting me know that being good is nice, but good is not best.
Good is not grace.
More important than me being good is God being glorified.
Obedience isn’t the goal.
Loving him is the goal.
Obedience is just one of the ways I love him.
It’s not goodness I need, it’s God.

Do you ever resort to writing a letter to God, too?
