In the beginning of the text, Celie turns to God as her only resort, instead of seeking an intimate relationship with Him. The very first line of the novel reads, “You better not never tell nobody but God¨ (Walker 1). The beginning of Celie’s relationship with God is forced, meaning Celie cannot grow from it. The first time Celie confides in God about the way Pa treats her and Nettie, is only due to the fact that she is not allowed to tell anyone else. Celie uses God as a coping mechanism by writing to Him, instead of creating a personal relationship through the letters.
She states that “I don’t write to god no more, I write to you.” to Nettie in letter seventy-three shortly after. This is a significant turn in Celie’s spiritual journey as she abandons God – which she deemed unhelping and unresponsive, in favor of her sister who has always been there for her as a source of comfort to her from the beginning. Celie began to turn away from religion and begins to search the spaces of spirituality in her life, which are namely Shug and Nettie. When Shug describes her journey from religious to spiritual and how she discovered her spiritual state became the ultimate turning point in Celie’s development away from stiffly structured religion. The conversation takes place in letter seventy-three where Celie learns that Shug had also believed in a conventional stereotyped God at one point in her life but had since advanced and developed a pantheist belief.
