Besides the Bible, have you ever read a book that taught you, reminded you, or encouraged you about God's love for you in a new or deep way? It can be fiction or non-fiction.
When I was thirteen I was introduced to Alice Walker's A Color Purple. This novel is the story of a southern woman named Celie, who wrote letters to God to survive years of abuse, tragedy and lack of sense of self. One of my favorite lines in the novel is:
I think it pisses God off when you walk by the color purple in a field and don't notice it.This line was like a lightbulb moment for me. I never wondered how God felt about things. I was always concerned about what God didn't do for me. But what about what I didn't do for Him? I also thought about all the great things God made just for me to relish like the smell of magnolias or the way a boy's dimple made me giggle, these things that only God knows that makes me happy. I begin to feel like God wanted me and for a little girl, it is a good thing to know.
In what books have you found a love note from God?
