Meagan Good has told fans how much a God-centered conversation with Grace Jones impacted her.
Good, the 33-year-old Christian actress married to Hollywood executive DeVon Franklin, bumped into 66-year-old singer and actress Jones, whom she is a fan of. Jones, the sister of Los Angeles based preacher Bishop Noel Jones who is featured on "Preachers of L.A." seemed to give Good valuable spiritual insight.
The younger actress took to Instagram to share their conversation, along with a photograph of the pair. According to Good, Jones had a similar conversation with the late singer Michael Jackson but seemed to want to not give him as much information as she did the younger entertainer.
"'We make mistakes along the way ..we're not perfect and we never will be, but when you have a 'real' relationship with God that is so solid and you 'know' Him ...you have a relationship with Him versus a 'religion ideal.'" Good quoted Jones as saying. "'Even in our mistakes and shortcomings -no matter what anybody says-- we can always be confident in what 'we know'- that we know- that we know in our heart.'"
Good admitted that the conversation made her both smile and cry because she knew the answers Jones was giving her. Still, she admitted to feeling enlightened and inspired because of Jones' life experience and godly knowledge.
Good described Jones as being, "..so fearless about what anyone had to say ...and so transparent about the mistakes made- but so absolutely, positively confident of her love for God and how much He absolutely loved her .. And I felt. ..even kindred -for this generation In a way ( in a non-shock value but genuine way)..."
The actress ended her Instagram post expressing her gratitude for the experience while sharing her revelation.
"Thankful for the revelation upon this new year -it was unpredictable and undeniable ...inspirational, clarifying and most of all ...Freeing …," Good wrote. "I've decided : I will not be the person held down by so much like in the years before ..I will be free #Soar #GraceJones."
For the new year, Good previously shared some things she is striving to do.
"... I have learned that there is a balance .. and in this new season of my life there is a purge..
What I allowed in 2014 -the people who treated me like it was my 'responsibility' to support their life and desires in every way, I will not allow in 2015…," Good wrote in an Instagram post before the new year. "I don't have to be the biggest saint of them all all ... All I have to do is be obedient ...and hear from the Father & respond accordingly...."
