Dear God—

I know not where I’m going. But it is my hope that wherever it is, You are there.  I have no idea what path You have laid for me, but I am confident that You have made it the way it should be built for me.

Of one thing I am sure is that pain will fall like rain, but upon my soul it will never stain.  And yes, I still do not fully know who I am, but I do feel You in the depths of me, and for that I am hopeful for what it is—I think might be left of the goodness in me.

For I have already found the treasure I sought when it was You I found deeper than just a thought.  And just because I talk about following your Will, doesn’t mean I always will.  So please allow us to speak more privately of that beneath your eternal Windmill.

But know this, it is your Glory—I will never allow anyone to steal.  And the fact that I feel you in my heart brings joy to all my days, and when those days are done, I’d be might to find a bit of a head start upon those Pearly Gates, because of your ways—I would rather not part.

So it is my desire to walk with You and You must know there is not a thing I will not do to prove the Essence of You, except maybe use a double negative or two while writing this letter to You.

But from this moment on, it is through this valley filled with the shadow of death and You—I will walk until my final breath.  So please allow me one last jest before I take my daily rest.


 

To say that I am built in your image

Is the reason why Love is my existence

For You—God—are Love.

Like you, Love is my identity,

Selfless of the righteous self.

For it is Love you wrote within my name

So it’s about damn time we fan it’s flame.

 —Ryan Love

 

P.S. I Love You


My roots are buried in the Dirty South. I grew up learning the importance of God and Southern Charm. I began writing in my late teens mostly through heartbreak and music. I moved out west 15 years ago and live right around the corner from the Fountain Of Youth. Most people refer to it as Lake Tahoe. I play Chef during the day and search for ways to save the world by night, through reading, writing, and believing. I enjoy the side of life that is less abrasive. I look forward to joining you on my quest through Spiritual Sobriety with the Promised Land as our ultimate destination.
