E-mailing Jesus

E-mailing Jesus

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!

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!

1 John 5:14-15 (ESV) And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us. And if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have asked of him.

Philippians 4:6-7 (ESV) do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

John 14:13-14 (ESV) Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it.

    This is very good to do. In Human Relations class in High School, we kept a Journal of our thoughts. I rather like & trust in prayer to God, Jesus & HolySpirit. Through your Faith-You WILL get answered by our Heavenly Father. “It is impossible to please God without Faith”

      Hi Ann, I was thinking the same. Nowadays almost everyone knows how to use technology. I will give it a try because I love writing. I am trying to keep a journal, but I can type faster than writing and I know He always answer our prayers, no matter how small they might seen to us. I am recuperating from total knee replacement and today I can say He has been listening to all my prayers; I feel so much better, I can walk way better than before and with almost no pain. His plans are always better than ours. Thank you Father for your unconditional love!! Amen.
