Dear Paul, thank you. Thank you for sharing your words of wisdom and testimony. The Holy Spirit used your story to immediately remind me of someone of whom I need to ask forgiveness. I am an emotional person, and the incident surrounding this person is extremely painful for me, so I didn't want that to drive me in any way. I know I am supposed to contact this person, because the Lord has brought it to my mind before. I just wasn't sure how to contact her. After reading your story, I prayed and asked for confirmation that now is the time. I only received reminders of your story and how His word commands us to do so. So, I searched on the internet and finally found what I felt like was the correct number. I called and no one answered. I plan to call again but was unsure if I should leave a message. I guess if I am truly obedient, I will leave a message.
In addition, the last several months have brought about a yearning in my heart for words from the Lord -- really just anything. He has answered in a different way; I have just totally been overwhelmed with His goodness by understanding more and more His love for me and the hope of that which is to come. It really has been wonderful. I will receive anything He wants to give me!!
I, like you, want to continually have Him search my heart and know if there is any offensive way in me; I only long to please and obey. I thank you again for sharing Paul; your story was very encouraging to me. I wanted you to know that.
