Feeling Disconnected from God? Letters to God

Letters to God I had been on my mission for about 8 months when my enthusiasm started to wain.  The girl I had dated for 4 years was decreasing the frequency of her letters.  It was one of the hottest summers in Detroit.  I had an unpleasant companion.  I had a culture of people who were not receptive to what we were teaching.  I had been raised on the Mormon conveyor belt and the fire of testimony that had been passed onto me by my parents was beginning to burn out. I considered myself a good missionary.  I was hard working.  I had been assigned as a senior companion, a district leader and a trainer on my 3rd month out!  I had been praying every day as I was supposed to.  I wrote in my journal every day.   I had been memorizing scriptures for months by then…probably past 250 by then. But after all that, I still felt no direct connection with God.  I had just finished reading the story of Joseph Smith's first vision and was picking a verse to memorize.  I chose the one that says, " I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it," (JS-H 1:25)  I realized that I could not say this about my own revelations. So, what started out at an act of frustration, I opened my Journal and wrote at the top, "Dear God,".  I went on to express all my frustrations with both honesty and clarity (sincerity).  It was more powerful than any prayer I had ever given to date, primarily because it was more focused.  Less pointless phrases.  More direct conversation.  I found I was more brave.  As the days went by, I found myself discussing scriptures with Him.  I was confused as to what many of them meant, especially as they applied to me. The first thing I noticed was a sense of being more directly connected to God, but still nothing "Undeniable".  This was a topic of our conversations over the next 3 months.  I did notice more "bumps and nudges" than I had experienced before.  (More details on what happened during these 3 months in my book "Undeniable Communication with God").  Finally, I was granted my first experience like unto Joseph Smith's, " I knew it, and I knew that God knew it, and I could not deny it," Since then, I have been allowed by God to give those I work with a promise.  If you will write a letter to God, every day for 21 days, without missing a day, with all sincerity you can muster up, He will respond in a way that you will know it is from Him. So, I invite all who read this.  Take the 21 day challenge.  And once you have done so, please make a comment here for others to read.  Some of you have already taken the challenge.  I invite you to share your experience here now. Let me know how else I can help. Your servant, Maurice
