One Pilgrim’s Progress in Faith
Today’s Letter to God
My Dearest Abba Father,
Grant me faith upon faith. Help my faith to grow exceedingly much – to thy honour and glory. May the end of this year have marked a quantum leap forward in my ministry to others – especially via the internet. Thou hast filled my mind with ideas to share of practical nature; how to build with ferro-cement, how to make a cold air tube, how to build water canopy greenhouse, how to employ various health habits, Christian dramatic scripts, a chain of strong evidence leading from atheism to a total trust in thee simply by following where the evidence leads. As for me personally it is my commitment to follow the chain of evidence wherever it may lead.”

My dear son, James [your name here],
If thou wilt turn at my reproof – behold I will pour out my Spirit unto you. I will make known my words unto you. Lo, I am thy God. Seek me early: let thy soul thirst for me and thou shall find that my loving kindness is better than life. Delight thyself in my law and meditate therein day and night. Then shalt thou be as a tree planted by the living waters. Thou shalt bring forth thy fruit in thy season and thy leaf shall not wither. Moreover, thou shalt prosper in whatsoever thy hand findeth to do. Yea, I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way that thou shalt go. I will guide thee with mine eye. I have bought thee with an infinite price, dear one, and I will never cast thee off’. Neither will I forsake thee for thou art my inheritance. Go forth and live in the verity of this truth, for I love thee greatly.
