Elizabeth Beirut was an invalid. She was laid up in bed most of her life until a young man came along. His name was Bob Roberts. She fell madly in love with him. Her father was almost tyrannical with his discipline of her. No doubt concerned about his little girl but he would not let her see him. They ran off together and got married. They left the country, went to Italy.
She wrote her father a letter every week for ten years. You can do the math. She never heard from him once. Until one day she received a package in the mail, it was a rather large box. She opened it up and inside was every letter she wrote her dad, all unopened. He wouldn’t read the letters and he stayed alienated from his baby to the day he died.
Today those letters are viewed as great pieces of literature. We have a great piece of literature too, called the Bible. God loves you and he has written you love letters but often times they remain unopened.
In the Bible God expressed His emotions and dreams for us to see who He truly is. If you truly want to discover the character of God read His love letters He wrote to you.
You may need to rethink the amount of time you spend with God in His word and in prayer. If you don’t spend enough time, I challenge you to start. You will be amazed what you learn and what you discover.
