It is good when you know....finally really know that God Almighty has heard you.
It takes an unutterable sigh of relief to express that load that lifts from one's shoulders.
For striving is common...and so very easy.
Try , try .....try harder they seem to jabber at you in one way or another.
Maybe you should do this....maybe you should do that....
But wait....calm......breathe in ...breathe out.
God has promised to support and lead me personally with His Spirit. I don't need some guru.
Nor do I need some "yes person" who just blindly flails about with easy encouragement pointed at my soul.
There is nothing worse than unwise words of encouragement. Why? Because a good friend knows when to really tell you off. A great friend knows when just a look of correction will help you understand that you need to change your path just a tad.
A good friend is willing to lose your friendship for the sake of saving your soul.....because he/she refuses to tell you lies to flatter your ego.
A good friend knows when to say no, and when to tell you that you're feeling sorry for yourself.
When God gives you a good friend, treasure and protect that friendship as more precious than gold.
