I just received this letter from one of my daughters in Christ. She is a committed Christian. She is about 40 years old. She has a very successful career. She is not yet married. We chat a lot. I pray that one day, sooner than later, she will be a beautiful bride walking down the aisle. Until then, she has grown to be a wonderful humble woman of God and a blessing to me. Read her letter and my reply to her.

“Dear Malia,

I’m learning from you to be thankful for everything no matter how small. Today I’m thankful for my job. I’m 15 years now in my company.  This means that if I choose to leave now, I will get all my benefits.

People have made mockery of me for staying on the same job for so long but I’m thankful. I’m thankful for the strength to carry on from day to day even when the worries of life set in. I’m thankful for the experience I have gathered and the expertise at the job. When I started I was highly impatient with people but now I can manage very difficult customers.  I’m grateful for the salary that was never delayed, for the people I met, for the people that touched my life and for the lives I may have touched thru my job. I thank God for the challenges I faced and overcame. My list is endless. I’m truly grateful! To God be the Glory now and forever more.

Your daughter…”


O…I really thank God for you! I thank God for being with you all these years, for wisdom and patience. I think that you (ignorantly) made a covenant with your company; to ‘marry’ their spirit. Now I believe it is time to let go. If you chose to remain working for them, that is good. If not, it is also good. Like you said, you shall have your benefits. Thank God! But from now on, you need to learn how to separate spiritually and emotionally from this good job. Remember what I said to you: The good is the enemy of the Best. Now it is time for you to marry a man, a real Christian man. The lessons you have learned in your office you shall apply them in your home as a wife and mother. More than ever, I wait for you to invite me to your wedding. Faith 100%! Doubt 0%! God bless you…”

“And give thanks for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ” (Eph 5:20)
