To My Best Friend

Justice may be fleeting, even non-existent in your life right now.  The pain you feel from the hands of others is horrible, and I seethe with righteous anger.  Yet, I know that the Lord is with you as the fruits of His spirit are truly evident in your life – love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  As these are evidenced in all aspects of your life, who can truly believe the vile words placed against your character and love?  I ask you this – what fruits have your tormentors manifested?  I offer hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and so much more.  So perhaps you should feel sorry for them, for they do not live with Christ as you do but dwell in their royal garb, presenting their self-professed holiness and separate themselves from those whom Christ loves.

Yet I know your pain is real.  Your tears are wet on your cheeks.  The purity in which you offered the talents that God has given you have been torn from you and shattered with abuse.  I know this, and I am so sorry.  I wish I could take away the pain, yet it surrounds you deeply.  I am sorry, I cry with you, and I pray for it to subside.

Yes, I love you, with the purity of sisters – as much as I love myself as guided by the Lord’s own words.  This love will not be tainted but the world’s filth or accusations of others.  THANK YOU for being a TRUE, HONORABLE, LOYAL, and CHRISTIAN friend to me and so many others.  I, for one, can’t imagine anyone as wonderful and real as you and I will never shy from this knowledge, for it is the truth.  I hope you believe me when I say more people acknowledge this truth than your tormentors, for the truth shines bright on a hill and cannot be hidden.  And the fruits of your tormentors will be seen for years to come as more lives and good names are tarnished with their filth and self-righteous sin.  Yet, even when it hurts so much to do so, we are called to love them even with their black hearts.  We cannot become like them, ever.

You are a wonderful friend, a better mother, and an amazing human being.  I rejoice that God created you!
