It comes to the time to begin. Life has been one of those rollercoasters. I have been on one, trials and everything come and go. But, lately I have been pondering about Friendship. I was asked about friendship. About once a month, I question relationships in general. Not blaming hormones, but I tend to be a bit sensitive. Sometimes even though I have a bushel of wonderful people in my life-I feel friendless.
Probing more into my heart, I can see why I feel that. I value truth! And a good friend (in my humble opinion) doesn't just live life with me, but knows me. A true friend can call me to live selflessly and more like Christ. Words of truth spoken to me with grace is a true friend. Under the microscope, I can see that I have been "too busy" to be vulnerable to my friends so that I can keep my "secrets" to myself.
How about you? Do you treasure truth-tell friends? What is your hinderance to deep friends?
Lord, help me to walk with transparency so that I can have freedom and forever formed into YOUR likeness.
