Friends

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12: 9Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! 11Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? 12And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

Today started out so stressful. Sometimes something happens and I just don’t understand how it could possible end up okay. My stomach is flipping and twisting, I’m distracted and worried and then God takes a hold of it and POW! He shows just how powerful He is. And through it I grow closer than I could have ever imagined to the friends he put in my life. I sat with them tonight laughing until my stomach felt like it was cramping and talking through a difficult situation. For a moment I took it all in and felt so blessed because God took that situation and intertwined us through it to make us all stronger together. I. Love. Them.

    • I so understand that Tanya. I didn’t have friendship like this until the last few years as I have been in the recovery process. Until then, all, and I mean ALL of my relationships were superficial. I didn’t share me with anyone because of fear and trust issues. Having deep women friendships has been one of the great surprises and delights I have experienced in recovery from codependency. It was very, very difficult though. I really had to push past my comfort zone to get there. I will be praying for you to find the friends God will bring beside you.
