Hello to all of you.
Thank you for all of your prayers, without which I am sure my struggle would be more difficult.
I continue only on the strength, grace, and wisdom of God.
I have my original GB letter around here someplace, but thought I would release the contents of it's many subjects, one at a time in a dedicated post for each subject.
Most of the ideas it contained, have already been released in this way.
I did not release the info. in it's original form so as not to be identified by the Society, which I feared would endanger the completion of my work.
"Pearl Doxsey" is the name I was born with, but not the married name I had inside the Org.
I know of a few chosen ones who have posted their letters, but I think they can only be found within their own blog.
Such a search result would not return most of these few,
because most of such blogs have a very low google rating.
As we grow in the discernment of the will of God, even in simple things which are not unique to us as individuals,
this alone begins to clarify our own individual path within our own life circumstances.
As we apply what we are learning, striving to obey the progressive revealing of the mind of Christ, our own path clarifies.
As we grow in love and self-sacrifice, we find ourselves supporting others more. Our own place begins to clarify.
Here is a scripture from the book of Romans, chapter 12...
"8 If your gift is to encourage others, do it! If you have money, share it generously. If God has given you leadership ability, take the responsibility seriously. And if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. 9 Don't just pretend that you love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Stand on the side of the good. 10 Love each other with genuine affection, and take delight in honoring each other. 11 Never be lazy in your work, but serve the Lord enthusiastically. 12 Be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and always be prayerful. 13 When God's children are in need, be the one to help them out. And get into the habit of inviting guests home for dinner or, if they need lodging, for the night. 14 If people persecute you because you are a Christian, don't curse them; pray that God will bless them. 15 When others are happy, be happy with them. If they are sad, share their sorrow. 16 Live in harmony with each other. Don't try to act important, but enjoy the company of ordinary people. And don't think you know it all! 17 Never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Do things in such a way that everyone can see you are honorable. 18 Do your part to live in peace with everyone, as much as possible."
We may ask..."How can we know what our gift is?"
When we see ourselves doing the work which comes natural to us, and we see that it is having good results...."building up the body" of Christ (Eph.4:11-13),
we begin to discern where we fit.
Often if we just look around at those striving to prove faithful, we will perceive a need...a way in which we can help and support...a void that no one has yet fulfilled.
This is spirit at work, showing how we can show mercy to others.
As we see others benefit from what only we can offer, we have begun to find our place.
We may think that we must find our "label" before we can begin to work;
if we focus instead on what we are able to perceive as an unmet need with our beloved family,
ways that others need support,
and we strive to meet that need...
we are likely working just where God has placed us.
What results do we see when we do this? Are others of the body, thankful and comforted? Then we have found our place.
How I long for the end...I am so tired, worn out, and in pain.
But how it sustains us when we continue to be a vessel of God's sublime spirit which keeps us going.
Our present tribulation will make our rescue, and the receiving of the promised love of God, all the sweeter.
Let us view our present slavery to God as a fleeting precious opportunity, to prove our love for Him as we reflect His glorious light.
