7年前のラブレター Love Letter from 7 years ago… - ジーザスライフハウス Jesus Lifehouse





Few days ago when I was cleaning my room, I found a letter.

It was a love letter that I wrote to Jesus 7 years ago when I just became a Christian.

It took me a while to read it because it was 5 pages lengths! I must have had lots of time back then. *lol*

Reading the letter, it just reminded me how God has been so faithful to me and how much he has blessed me.


Who would have thought that I would live in the best city Osaka and lead this amazing church with my husband, the most awesome man in the whole world!



I felt extremely thankful about this incredible life that God has given me.

Where would I have been today without you, Jesus?




Also, it was good to be reminded how I was like back then. I had ups and downs. I had doubts and worries. I was imperfect.

I still am.

Though I do not deserve what God has given me, because of Jesus, I get to live this incredible life!



Anyways, I will share some details here. (don’t worry, it won’t  be 5 pages!)

I hope I can encourage someone. And most of all, this is to remind myself where I came from.


(洗礼式の翌日 The day after I got baptised)


昨日という最高の日をありがとう! 今まで生きてきた中で一番幸せな日だった。絶対忘れない。ついにあなたの愛をまるごと受け入れて、その瞬間から私は生きる目的を見つけた。この人生、あなたと人々に仕えるために生きたいです。

Dear Jesus

Jesus, I want to thank you for the amazing day yesterday. It was the happiest day of my life and I will never forget it. I have FINALLY fully accepted your love and from that moment, I found my life purpose. I want to live my life to serve you and people.


I wish I realized this earlier, but I feel that yesterday was the time that you chose for me. You waited patiently enough so I can be baptized with my mother and my precious friends! My new family! What a gift! I am extremely blessed.




Now that I know everything was created by you and for your purpose, I can feel your presence everywhere. Wherever I go, you are always here with me. And that makes me smile. I feel warm. I am so happy!

When I am feeling down, I can feel you close to me and saying to me “it’s okay. Because I am here with you always.”

So any troubles, challenges, struggles I may face in the future, I am not going to be afraid because I know that I am not alone. Jesus is right by my side. He give me the strengths to overcome ANYTHING.





Before, I was always searching for something in my life. I tried to find the answer and I looked everywhere: friends, family, achievements.

But I never felt satisfied and I was constantly struggling with fear, worries and disappointment.

I criticized myself when I wasn’t meeting my expectations. I felt the pressure to become someone that I’m not. I was trying so hard all the time.

I tried to be positive and happy all the time. I suppressed all my stress inside in order to look good in front of people.  I lost tons of weight. I studied so hard. I was tired. I hated myself so much. I was overwhelmed with guilt and stress.



But I have changed so much since I received you, Jesus! I don’t punish myself anymore. I don’t hear that “you are not good” voice.

I feel good about myself. I feel comfortable being myself. And I know that this peace inside me will last forever as long as I hold on to my faith.


I want to do anything for you Jesus, because I am so thankful! I want to make you happy. Help me so that I can learn and apply your words so that I can lead the unsaved people to your light. I want to reach out to them.



I still have uncertainties in my life that I want you to answer for me.

1) I know that going back to Japan is your plan, but I don’t know WHY I need to leave Australia. I love this country. Please show me what my purpose is. I’ve asked you before if I should go back or not and although I am worried, it feels right to go to Japan. And you are coming to Japan with me so I won’t be alone!


2) My career. Before I became a Christian, I was looking forward working in the media industry and become a workaholic. But somehow, it doesn’t feel right anymore. All my ambitions, materialistic mind faded away. I don’t want to live a life that I can’t go to church or be with my church family. Please guide me in this area.


3) My future husband. I have no idea. All I know is that I need to completely trust you in this area. And I am not going to marry anyone who doesn’t love you. I need to have someone who has the same values and love you deeply, otherwise I know that marriage is going to suffer. Anyway, I feel comfortable being single for now. I know that you have someone special for me so I will keep on growing!

私からジーザスへのラブレターでした! この人生をありがとう!あなたが大大大大好きです!


So that’s my love letter to you 😉 Thank you Jesus for this life! I love you sooooo much!!





神様の計画は私が想像していた以上にすごかった。 日本でジーザスライフハウスという世界一大好きなチャーチと出会った。かけがえのない家族に出会えた。そして、神様を深く愛している最高の男性と結婚することができた!

So that’s the summarized version of my love letter.

Isn’t God amazing that He answered everything that I prayed for back then?

God’s plan for me was even better than what I’ve ever imagined. I found the best church in Japan called JESUS LIFEHOUSE. I met my precious family. And I got married to this most incredible man who loves God deeply. 



To humans belong the plans of the heart,
but from the Lord comes the proper answer of the tongue.
2 All a person’s ways seem pure to them,
but motives are weighed by the Lord.
3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans.  

(Proverbs 16:1-3) 





If you are a Christian, I want to  encourage you to remember where you came from.

If you are uncertain about your future or going through a tough time right now, just remember what God has done for you. Find things to be thankful for. And TRUST Him.

Don’t forget your first love!!

He never stops loving us!

もし最初の確信を、最後までしっかりと持ち続けるならば、わたしたちはキリストに与る者となるであろう ヘブル3:14

14 We have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original conviction firmly to the very end. Hebrews 3:14




And if you are not a Christian, I want you to know that God loves you and He hears you.

You can pray to him about anything, like having a conversation with your best friend and ask Him to show you that He is real and He will show you!!!

29:12 あなたがたがわたしを呼び求めて歩き、わたしに祈るなら、わたしはあなたがたに聞こう。29:13 もし、あなたがたが心を尽くしてわたしを捜し求めるなら、わたしを見つけるだろう。エレミヤ29:12

Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. (Jeremiah 29:12)
