After the Storm Settles, Who's Left?

August 24, 2018

After the storm settles, who's left?


I had this dream about friendships:

💭 I was in my kitchen and looked into my living room to find all the people I knew roaming back and forth. Suddenly, winds and storms increased around me filling the kitchen. After the dust settled, I was surprised to find only 1 faithful friend left. END OF DREAM. 💭

🌸 Through this dream, I felt God was giving me clarity to navigate the winding roads of companionship, to discover and grow healthy, symbiotic relationships and to find those who have my back as I have theirs. Throughout our fight against cancer, there were only a handful of people Scott felt safe with who fought alongside us. But those numbers dwindled even further after the funeral was over in our season of grief and restoration. As a result, this company that remained had crossed the threshold of friendship into the realm of family. These are the people you can write down as your emergency contact numbers.

🌸 I recently heard a speaker, Dutch Sheets, state, "Know who you can go to battle with and who you can do lunch with."



🌸 Basically, it's perceiving which friends you CAN do life with and which friends you SHOULD only do lunch with. It's not peeps who need you to fight their battles for them. As I wrote in a previous post, "These are kindred spirits who display an inner strength to take them through their personal storms. Their tenacity is birthed from their deep relationship with Jesus, so reliant on His presence on their lives."



🌸 Find those who you can link arms and do battle with. We are stronger together and there is power in agreement.


📖 "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up." (Eccles. 4:9-10)
