Emails to God are one of my favorite books. It was written at a time in my life when my relationship to God was a struggle. I was unhappily expressing the same unanswered prayer for a long term project I was working on for many years. I wanted closure. I wanted direction. I wanted more energy for seemingly endless sacrifices for an important cause.
For years I worked tirelessly. I felt discouraged and miserable. After indulging in another pity party where I was both hostess and guest of honor, I considered the possibility that maybe I had the wrong perspective. I considered the possibility that maybe God has His own problems, struggles, and concerns. I considered the possibility that maybe He was sick and tired of my whining to Him about the same thing over and over again. I thought maybe God has his own set of agendas and needs. I wondered if maybe, instead of doing all that praying, I could learn to listen instead.
Not only, did I begin to feel better but I also began to have my mind filled with the ideas that gave life to this book. I do not know if it will make you laugh. I hope so. I do not know if you even believe in God. I do. The important thing is, this is the book that reminded me that even God has feelings too.
