Yielded

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , at 7:32 am by Broken & Brave

Yesterday was such a tough day for me. I yielded to my Savior in every way and I did something difficult and challenging for me. It went ok, but I really had to process some feelings and thoughts for a moment. I had to be transparent. For anyone, being vulnerable is a bit like being naked in public–not that I have any experience with that, lol, but anyone can imagine how that would feel. Of course, my Jesus knew how it felt….

Isn’t it so wonderful to be in a place where you can trust God with your heart and be transparent with your soul and bear it with others so that we can bear our own burdens a little better, but so that our burdens can bring consolation to the soul of another.

I think all around people are feeling alone. Alone with their hearts. Alone in their struggles. Alone in many decisions and reflections. God didn’t design humanity to be alone. That is why after creating Adam, came Eve. God saw it was not good for Adam to be alone.

(Genesis 1:27)

Gods purpose for companionship is not merely for reproduction and population of the earth.

God knows the Beauty of Friendship.

A friend can get you through the things that are hard for you. It’s like supplemental strength. When you plant a tree and it’s young it needs a stake right next to it, driven deep and tied to its side so it can withstand the elements and environment no matter how extreme.

God delights in friendship. This truth is evident all throughout His Word. He had Jonathan supporting and encouraging David then to be followed by his mighty men. Esther had an advocate in Hathach, Naomi had Ruth, Elijah had Elisha, Barak and Deborah made a great team and the Disciples of Christ had each other. The greatest friendship of all came when Christ sacrificed himself for you. He desired friendship with each person on the earth. He has reserved special friendship for you.

So be grateful for the gift of friendship. You may not have a lot of friends, but count yourself blessed if you have one friend who knows and sees your heart, your good, your not so good, and loves you the same anyway.  ~Nicole
