E-mailing Jesus

E-mailing Jesus

By Keti Rosalieva: 

When a close friend moved away, I felt alone and worried about not having anyone to talk to, seek advice from, and confide in. I very much missed having that special link with someone, but I soon discovered that I could have the same kind of personal connection with Jesus that I had enjoyed with my dear friend.

I decided to get up earlier each morning than I had been in order to take an hour to read God’s Word and hear from Jesus in prophecy before I did anything else. These have become my daily “talk times” with Jesus, and they really do the trick!

I decided to get up earlier each morning than I had been in order to take an hour to read God’s Word and hear from Jesus in prophecy before I did anything else. These have become my daily “talk times” with Jesus.

Since I can type faster than I can write, I do this on my computer. I start by typing a prayer in which I share my heart with Jesus–just as though I were writing Him a letter or e-mail. I tell Him what’s been happening with me, what I expect to face that day, and anything that may be bothering me. He already knows these things, of course, but it really helps to commit it all to Him in prayer. When I type “Amen,” it’s like clicking on the “send” button on my e-mail program. My prayer, like an e-mail message, has been sent off to the courts of Heaven for Jesus to read.

That’s great, but even better is that I don’t have to wait for hours, days, or weeks for a reply. As soon as I send my e-mail, the reply comes. I just type out the message as I hear Jesus speak to my heart, and it nearly always contains all the answers, comfort, instruction, peace, and inspiration I need to see me through the day. If not, I shoot off another e-mail to Jesus asking Him to fill in the gaps, and He does.

This special time with Jesus in the morning has been such a help that I’ve gotten in the habit of e-mailing Him a couple of times a day, especially when things come up unexpectedly and I need His opinion or advice. Usually it just takes a few minutes, and the clear, simple advice and solutions He gives always make it time well spent.

I now enjoy the companionship and confidence of new friends and co-workers, but I am hooked on my e-mail times with Jesus. They have become my way of telling Him how much I love and need and depend on Him, as well as a great opportunity to thank Him for all He does for me. In return, He sends me all I need to meet and make it through the day a winner. I like that part too!

    Hi. I LOVED reading this! Thank you for sharing. I’m going to try this because, all too fequently, whenever I try to pray, I enter a battleground!!! There are sooo many varied, intrusive thougts and images that interrupt any intimacy I am trying to establish with Jesus. I know who is causing all this “soul-noise” and I pray for God to ban him from intruding on our time together but that doesn’t always work. Sometimes I sing my prayers but this sounds like a GREAT WAY TO GET SOME SERIOUS PRAYER TIME IN. Thanks again for sharing. allieoops

    I agree with Allieoops, this really sounds like a great thing I also find the same thing happening to me along with the sleep monster attacking me at night. That is what I call it when I am tired from my daily routine and say my prayers before going to bed.

      ilaiyalwar,
      I know this this reply is coming many months after you originally posted. I hope that you are no longer in danger and if you need someone to talk to please consider contacting me through this site. I will check back for the next several days and see if we can’t link up together. I will pray for your safety tonight. God Bless.

      Sincerely,
      Shelley
