110- A Letter from Jeanette
I must have deeply insulted Jeanette. I admired then, and I do now, that she wrote me a heartfelt, loving letter as a way of initiating the healing process between us.
July 6, 1983
Dear Georgann, I have a burden in my heart for you and myself. I am praying for more discernment and the capability to perceive and communicate in a way the Lord would want me to.
I prayed the hurt I have would heal. God has answered my prayer.
He has given me a vision. I pray you will be open to receive what the Lord has revealed to me.
I saw a beautiful stone with rough and ugly edges on it. The Lord wants this stone to be polished, to be a perfect and precious jewel.
I believe the Lord is using me as a tool to pray for you and tell you He wants you to rest and be at peace and not be defensive to yourself and others in your role as Mother.
I still love you as my friend even though I was deeply hurt. I praise God that he has shown me that the hurt doesn’t matter. I need only to step out in faith and continue to love my sister in Christ.
Philippians 1:3-10 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you… being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in knowledge and all discernment, that you may approve the thins that are excellent, that you may be sincere and without offense till the day of Christ, being filled with the fruits of righteousness which are by Jesus Christ to the glory and praise of God.
My dear sister, it hurts to be polished and shaped in the way the Lord wants us to be, but praise God what beautiful results and masterpieces He will have when He gets done with us.
You can hear that she is past anger and in the process of healing from the pain I inflicted on her. You can hear her pure heart. You can hear the love. Our friendship survived.
