A new message arrived in my inbox,

I smiled when I saw what it said,

This one I shall keep to look at again.

Not deleted, even after being read.


The contents are not really private,

But they might not be interesting to you.

It was a message relayed, through someone, from God,

Telling me what I had to do.


I laughed with such joy when I read it,

It said all I wanted to hear;

To communicate and shout from the heavens.

So, I guess that’s why I’ve found myself here.


It’s amazing to me, someone that I don’t know,

Heard a word and passed it by mail.

An assignment from Him, delivered so modernly.

Who knew that God no longer used snail?


Part of the message said that He had my addy,

To expect communication from Him,

But, before further greater enlightenment,

I should be open and filled to the brim


By all He can offer, if I but just ask,

And listen with two willing ears.

So I’m knocking and seeking for God to instil

More confidence , from some of my fears.


I tell you, I cried when I read it,

Such tears that made my face damp.

If He’d sent it by post, I’m telling you too,

I would also be treasuring that stamp.

  1. I love this! I spent a sleepless night worrying about something I may have screwed up at work. Prayed intensely, knew God could fix it, not sure He would choose to. So I too checked email this morning, got the thumbs up from Him, and am now tending the bruises from where I kicked myself for my carelessness. God IS. Thanks for pinging to us 🙂 Bless you!


    1. I KNOW with certainty that He doesn’t screw up. It’s just our perception. ‘Cos, basically, we don’t know the end of the movie. 🙂 But, it’s still worth watching the film. He does answer. Bless you. Faith is a gift and not one easily come by.x
