I Am A Sister

I Am A Sister
Photo by thewebprincess

I am a sister! I love being a sister.  I have many that I see myself as a sister to. I have a lot of people that I see me as their sister.  I am younger sister and an older one. I love being a sister.

The other day, it just occurred to me that this blessing of sisterhood has been a blessing over the years. I know so many amazing people and too many I am their little or big sister. Indeed I have been transformed my the story of many people. Some male some female.

When I think about each person, each story, I see the role I play. When I reflect about theses wonderful people I see the kind of sister I am to them.

I am..,

The sister that believes in her

The sister that thinks she can do it

The sister that doesn’t understand what more to do or say to connect with her

The sister that will take her burdens as mine

The sister that accepts her

The sister that believes he can do it

The sister who’s heart is intertwined with his

The sister that felt like a twin

The sister that will took him seriously even when others didn’t

The sister that will help him stand up and be real

The sister that would ignore his faults and help

The sister that wants to be like him

The sister that takes him for him and loves him no matter what

The sister that will make him do what’s best for him

The sister that would help him clear his mind to think clearly

The sister that would help him see the world with matured eyes

The sister that brings him close to see how easy life in Christ is

The sister that guides and watches to see him gradually become

The sister that is willing to tell her the truth

The sister that just doesn’t understand her

The sister that wants to know her more

The sister that I really thanks God for her

The sister that wants to lift him up but not sure how

The sister that knows she is stubborn but loves her all the same

The sister that is similar to him

The sister that’s just so grateful for him

The sister that is grateful for where she is today

The sister that loves her unique ways

The sister that is proud of him

The sister that wishes to be closer to her

The sister that is careful what she says to her

The sister that prays for the best for her.

The sister that wished we were closer

The sister that cherishes her from afar.

These and much more are ways my sisterhood relationship has been expressed towards people in my life.

Some I have seen my prayers answered over them while others its still ongoing. Some I have felt close to and other are still am.

For sure it’s been a blessing having people to relate with as sisters and friends.
I continue to build my archery of sisters every day. People that I can call myself a sister to (at least in my own eyes). If you have read to this point you may have seen the way I see the relationship I have had with you or want to have.

No matter where you fall, close or far away, remember that I want to be that sister that truly desires that you become all you were designed to be.

Sisterhood definitely can be expressed in very many ways. Mine keeps expanding and it keeps evolving.

I am glad to be a sister to many.

I thank God for each opportunity I have been given.

And I thank you all for letting me be your sister.

Abiding Is In Your DNA

vine photoJesus said to abide in me, I discovered that the life of Christ inside us is that branch he talks about and since that branch is his, abiding in him would be natural for the branch because that’s what they do.

Abiding in Jesus is in different forms. First, are you connected/set free? Second, take the time to be alone with God and third do it every moment.

In order to be like Jesus, we must abide in him. His life must be active in ours.

God bless!

Iron Sharpens Iron-Like Jesus Podcast – 11

iron sharpens ironIn this episode, I compare iron sharpens iron with how having my husband as my sounding board has really helped me to discover and confirm who really it is that God made me.

Married:

If you are married, do you feel you can tell your spouse all that is in your mind?

If you are married, do you feel you can tell your spouse all that is in your mind?

When you do, do you think he/she will really understand what you are saying?

Single: 

Do you have a friend that you can share more of your authentic version with? Will he/she embrace and not condemn you for exposing the real you?

Whether you are single of married, you need friends that will fulfill the scripture Iron sharpens iron for you.

And always remember that God wants you to live your life to the fullest.
