Words don’t express the power of friendship. When true friendship is available, we powerfully transform in the relationship. All amazing and passionate patience for our friend’s thoughts and walk in awareness says “yes” and peace and wonderful freedom to be are present. We are invigorated and inspired and give the same in equal measure. Each grows and is ennobled.
Hearing our friend with warm and peaceful appreciation and openness only available within the generous presence and warm listening for each other’s voice, we are transformed way outside and apart from the apparent and restrictive limits of our single smallness. We taste inspiration and invigoration only available being in a friendship outside of ourselves. Theses of oneness soon aspire to wholisms greater than teased aspirations of the puny self.
When walking alone in life, we cannot see this potential even in the memory of other friendships. We do not have awareness of possibilities. Inside of the pregnant conversation of one day, I so much appreciate this capacity to grow and create that friendship gives.
The privilege to wake to the opportunity of friendships is one powerful way that seeds our future. Reasonable philosophers, when evaluating a future for us, cannot feel and fathom that awesome friendship, each sacred day, will rewrite their plans and give us a world in God’s image. That is our way and selflessness is our gift and our reward. Assessing all relationships, where is the epitome of this found? Was really anyone ever a greater friend than the walking Christ?
All, we now need acquaint ourselves with the perfected power in Him. When kindred spirits come together in friendship, He is there. Each of us is called to perfection in friendship. We who know Him have an extraordinary responsibility to serve as wonderful friends, especially to those who do not know Him or are hurting and in need.
Yes, He is the way, the truth and the inspired life. Teaching this way transforms other worlds and quietly releases prayers for grace. I will go with you in peace and opened awesome trust. Really, even tasting sacrifice is another foray to friendship with Jesus. May your friendships be many, such that all may know Him. Amen.
