I FORGIVE YOU FOR MY SAKE: A Letter To My FATHER. (Part 1)- Wesley West

Dear Father,
Sincerely my heart aches from the absence and space I have created between you and me though unintended. Today you showed me how empty I am without you. As I walked home alone, I longed for the days you and I shared, those moments when you directed every step I made even before I set foot to the unknown, those moments when everything concerning me was predestined. You knew my name while I was still an embryo; even before my ears formed I heard you say these words to me: “May My WISDOM and EXCELLENT SPIRIT LIVE in EVERY part of YOU” and so you named me WESLEY.

You made me believe more in you when I called and you replied. I miss me making mistakes; and making mistakes even when you were with me; because from the mistakes I thought I made you taught me and gave me the necessary experience I needed in life. I still remember years ago when life was tough and harsh on me; I was penniless, I cried to you and threw your word back at you of how you said you created and own the universe and how much you can supply all my needs; so by Philippians 4:19 how can I be poor when the universe belongs to my Father, but you simply laughed. You told me Life is not harsh on me, you wanted me to learn how to manage and save the little I have; you made it so I will learn to spend wisely when the grand Overflow comes.
I was so foolish and ignorant not knowing you wanted me to learn how to manage the blessings you have for me in the future. That is just one out of a thousand lessons you have taught me.

Father, I remember all of them; but when I walked home today you were not with me. I did not feel you with me, and each minute of your silence caused my heart to weep.
My ignorance made me leap backwards when you reached out your hands toward me, disobedience has blindfolded me, the weight of sin has crippled me – I missed my steps while walking alone.
All I ask is you give me a little of the grace in 2Corinthians 8:9 which you said will be my new identity.
Father, forgive me; like your son Jesus taught me forgiveness and gave me a kind heart, for I am convinced that such virtue flows in the Trinity. Forgive me. For my sake. Forgive me.

From your son,

  1. First off I would like to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before
    writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts
    in getting my thoughts out. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or tips?
    Appreciate it!


    1. Thanks for messaging me. Using my own personal experiences, I’ll say that first 10 to 15 minutes are like a warming period for me. Most times, I may go for days without really figuring out how to begin. But the fun of it is this, it always comes out. My head keeps ringing with the title I’m working on and then like building bricks, ideas arrives little by little which I have learnt to catch in my handy notepad. Later, I relax and put them together to form my work. The most important thing about writing is not always that you write a classic but that you know who you are: a writer. You have a unique style, a unique message and a unique voice. It doesn’t have to always be understood as much it needs to be heard. Music, sightseeing, conversations have a way of inspiring me to write. Know what turns yours up and surround yourself with it. You’re a writer, write! Hope this helps ☺
