    Frantic and Stressed

    November 26, 2022 Dear God, good morning. In the book God Promises for every day writes, “What do when you are Frantic and Stressed?” I love this verse in the Bible. “But the Spirit produces the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. There is no law that says these things are wrong. Galatians 5:22-23 That was a beautiful read. I do get frantic and get stressed out. I love the fruits of God’s love for us, and I would love to have the fruits of the Holy Spirit. I have experienced some of the fruits of the Holy Spirit with love, faithfulness,  peace, joy, and…

    Death and Dying

    October 25, 2022 Dear God, good morning. Today’s reading in God’s Promises for every day writes, “What to do when someone close to you dies.” Wow, this one is a painful topic. Death sucks! Last year I lost two friends, Dan and Danny. Dan and I were close, and we talked every other week. Dan was like an older brother to me. We went to karaoke, and Dan’s voice was incredible. Dan and I sang the song “Leather and Lace” by Stevie Nicks and Don … we sang as a duo together. A bunch of us in the fellowship went to the VFW, where they had karaoke, and we were…

    Feeling Guilty is the in Past

    October 24, 2022 Dear God, good morning. I need your help to quit smoking cigarettes. I keep waking up coughing, like last night. Please help me stop smoking and stay stopped. Gary was sweet, making coffee for us. Today’s reading in God’s Promises forever day states,” What to do when you feel guilty?” Since I was a child, my biological parents have made me feel guilty. I felt guilty all the time as a child. When my mother was pregnant, she blamed me for losing our brother, Richard Dean Landers. I did not know my mother was having severe labor pains. I was so angry at my mother for physically…

    Depression Versus God

    September 10, 2022 Good Morning, Dear God. Today I don’t even want to write to you. My stupid depression has gotten worst. I need to call my psychiatrist Monday morning. I wrote you a long letter this morning and lost it on my computer. I trust in you, Jesus, to lift the agony of this depression today. You always come to my rescue, and thank you. My little Bible says, “What to do when you feel depressed?” God, I know you hear my cry for help. I feel empty on the inside of my soul. My heart feels broken. I feel despondent and lack faith today. I need your Spirit…

    Depression in Recovery

    August 31, 2022     Good morning, dear God. I hope that you can heal the depression I get in the afternoons. Yes, the depression is rearing its ugly head again. I can’t stand it, and it hurts my heart. People who don’t get mental illness are so lucky. Depression feels like a dark cloud lingering over my head. I don’t want to be around people, so I retire to my bedroom, where I can sleep the pain away. It puzzles me that I have to go through this again. Please help me to help myself. Maybe Gary and I can watch a movie this afternoon to keep me from…

    July 15, 2022 Good morning, Dear God. It’s my niece’s birthday, and I can’t believe she’s twenty—seven years old. Where did the time go? Happy birthday Yasmina (baby-gir). I was telling you about my introduction to the fellowship Jesus. My second meeting was at a lecture hall at Harvard University. As I entered the hall, I noticed only men were in the meeting. I saw that these men talked about their lovers. I thought they were compassionate and so loving regarding their wives. So I thought, Wow, men have feelings? Then they had a break during the meeting. Many were gay, and I didn’t know it was a men’s gay…

    Faith and Bipolar

    July 9, 2022 Dear God, good morning. I know very little about the Bible, and I am hoping to join a church in my neighborhood soon. Gary said there’s a church that only says, “Just Church”. I would like to check out that church. Today’s reading is about, “Faith”. I sometimes question how strong my faith is with you, God. I know in my heart that I love you and that you rescue me from myself. I do have faith in you, it’s blind faith. I can’t see you God, but I believe you are with me when I’m writing to you. Sometimes I question my faith. I think everyone…

    Mental Illness in Recovery

    Good morning Dear God. Poor Roman returned to the hospital within the last month, Roman’s third time going into the hospital. Please make his doctor put Roman back on his new medicine. When Roman came home from the previous hospitalization, the hospital doctor put him on a new treatment, Trileptal medication, which helped Roman so he won’t hear voices or think that people were trying to hurt him. I’m agitated this morning because Roman has a heart of Gold. And Roman should not suffer because of his original doctor, Tod. The Doctor at Saint Elizabeth told Tod and Greg that Roman was on a new treatment and ready to leave…

    Love and Adversity

    May 26, 2022   Good morning, dear God, Yesterday was intense. Today the scripture speaks about “Love.” According to “The Life Recovery Bible,” writes “Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud, or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no records of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, it’s always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.” Corinthians 13:1-3. I love Corinthians because it speaks of love. Please, sweet Jesus, help me never to lose faith in you. I believe in…
