A Wonderful Letter Of Appreciation From Brother Sean

By David J. Stewart | October 2012

I received the following heart encouraging e-mail in October of 2012 from Sean...

Hello Mr. Stewart. It has been a while since we've last spoken. Although its been a while, I have not forgotten about you at all, and still do pray for you. It would be fine if you forgot about me, because I am nobody worth remembering, but how could I forget the man whom the LORD Jesus Christ used to change my life forever? Absolutely impossible.

Hearing that your health has not improved saddens me greatly, but I know your articles on trials, tribulations, and faith-testing, and it is clear that your rewards will be superb. I hope that I may also have rewards like you one day, because I look up to you the most in this entire sin-cursed world. You have the best ministry I have ever seen, and I love you David. I love you so much because of your strong faith in God, the faith to hang in there. David, I only wish that I could have been a closer friend to you.

It is men such as yourself which I have sought and have failed to find. This is the truth. I wish that I could have been there for you to comfort you in your darkest hours. I know that you'd appreciate that considering the present circumstances. Please know that I have not forgotten you. I will die with your memory, i.e., assuming that the rapture doesn't occur before then. I thank God for your existence, and I hope sincerely that I may be a spectator in your spiritual prosperity to come.

I love you so much, and I hope that I am not too much of a bother. I only want you to know that I love you so much and still have you on my mind, even after all these years. I will die with your memory. You are the one person I wanted to meet the most whom I will never meet until the regeneration.

I wish I could do more for you. I truly do. You are loved, by me and more importantly by the great God of heaven, the LORD Jesus Christ. Surely your reward shall be great, how can it not be? I love you, and I will die with your memory, i.e., I will never forget you even unto death, my beloved David.

Wow, I am so humbled. It encourages my soul to know that God is using my humble labors to help others in the Lord. I give God all the glory and credit, for He is the One Who has worked in my heart both to will and to do of His good pleasure.

I so much appreciate Brother Sean saying that he wishes he could have been there for me in my darkest hour; but in hindsight, God has given me uncommon strength through uncommon suffering. I would never want to relieve my afflictions and hardships in life, which have been worse than death, but I know God guides my steps. Psalm 37:23, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.”
