A Letter to My Child

Dearest Child,

You have many God-sized dreams; nevertheless, they seem thwarted by your disability.

You repeatedly ask, “Why did God make me this way?”

“God does not make mistakes,” I reply, “He has a purpose for you.”

“What is my purpose?” you ask.

“I cannot tell you that, only He can. You must seek Him and He will teach you,” I exhort.

The lions grow weak and hungry,
but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
Come, my children, listen to me;
I will teach you the fear of the Lord.

Psalm 34:10-11

“But, I’m not normal, Mama?”

“The Lord says you are beautifully and wonderfully made, little one.”

“I don’t feel beautiful.”

“You are beautiful in His sight and that is all that matters!” I retort.

“My dreams seem impossible,” you say.

“Perhaps, it is not about your dreams, dear child, but rather His dreams for you? They will materialize if you follow them because He is God and you are not.”

“I have limitations, I have nothing to offer, Mama.”

“Everyone has something to offer, dear one. Think of the gifts He has placed in you from the beginning. What can you do with what you already have?”

“But, Mamma, I am afraid.”

“Child,” I reply, “the only fear you need is the fear of the Lord.”

The fear of the Lord, is the beginning of wisdom;
 All who follow his precepts have good understanding.
To Him belongs eternal praise.

Psalm 111:10

“I will be here for you, but you must seek God’s dreams for you – His God-sized dreams. When you find them, you will also find your calling. Follow it until the end of your days, my child.”


Your Mama
