True Friendship is not only measured by what a person says or does in your presence or the truth they tell when you’re present.
The true measure of a friendship happens when things are said about you when you’re not around.
Your true friend morphs into a paid attorney, putting up a strong defense for you when someone comes for you and you’re not there to defend yourself. They also hold your secrets in confidence like attorney/client privilege.
A True Friend ❣️
I saw this photo from Shawn McKenzie and loved it. I wrote some encouraging words below it for women like this. I pray it blesses you. The revelation blessed me.
If you are this, understand that every man is not looking for this. Make sure you’re ok with that fact and remember to not take a step back waiting for someone who doesn’t understand the value of this, to catch up. They just may not be in to you, or ready for you, or just not checking for you. That’s ok. If there is only one for you that means don’t gaze into the eyes of every man in the multitude wondering if he is the one. It may sound cliche but fix your eyes on GOD. If you deal in Faith you know HE will not make you ashamed, HE knows what you need, want and how to give it to you. HE is your Father. Your greatest champion who knows and calls you by name. Speak your name and who you are and what GOD has Himself said about you. It will help you to remember you’re worthy. As for me, my name is Bridgette. Though I had strayed I am called and chosen. I am waiting, I am patient, I am grateful and I Am LOVE.
Ich Liebe Dich Alle ❤️

LORD, Create in me a clean heart, Oh GOD; and renew a Right Spirit in me. Psalms 51:10
I’ve been reading about/watching a lot of hate in the media, movies, etc…but in my real life I see a lot of Love. I desire to focus on the Love…on the YOU and let you deal with the rest. I know you don’t play and you are a Protector, Provider, Peace Giver, and Love Instiller.
GOD, Your Love captures people, places and hearts that one would never imagine could be touched. That’s why I count on you so much.
Again I ask, with a humbled heart, “Create in me a Clean Heart, Oh GOD, and Renew a Right Spirit in me.
Choose this day whom you will serve…..

It seems as if the world has taken up a strong hate culture. All you have to do is check the comments section in any positive post on social media to see that the hate game is strong. People no longer care about right or wrong. Not to get off track but sometimes I question, “did they ever?”. Did they ever really Love others. Were they ever really not haters? Did they learn to hide their feelings behind the guise of charity and false Christianity to impress others? Questions that may never have answers.
Back to topic.
I must say that times have changed. While we all know this to be a fact, I’m actually one of the optimistic people who thought things and people were changing for the better. Take note that I’m not saying I’m wrong. I will say that what Im seeing is definitely counter to what I believe.
The culture seems to have shifted from a “Can’t we all just get along?”, straight to, “I hate you!”. What moment in time did this change occur? Can we rewind the cassette tape and record over that moment so that it will forever be not even a memory? Unfortunately, the answer is “no”. At the very least, the hope would be to get to a place of acknowledgment so healing can begin. Yes, healing.
Hate is an infectious disease. It causes deterioration of all that is good in your life. Hate, just like other sin, can breed poor health, cause lack, and be the source of many unfortunate circumstances in the lives of those who harbor it. Hate can cause unsubstantiated fear. Hate is also one of the best ways to know GOD has left the building.
The one thing that resonates in my mind over and over is this: Those that claim to know GOD, Those that claim to Love GOD and foster hate do not have a real concept of who GOD IS. The sprit of GOD is not speaking to you. Your GOD conscience mind is on pause. The enemy has taken up residence in you and he has been made to feel at home. The things you say and do no longer line up with what the FATHER would want from you. Your prayers are ineffective. You effectively straddle the fence and you willingly disobey GODS commandment to Love.
Check your hate at the feet of the FATHER. Repentance brings forgiveness and positive change. Release hate from your heart and watch the manifestation of GODS miracles overflow in your life. LOVE is the Seed that brings good and GODLY things. *You whom hate anyone. You Loveth GOD not. LOVE GOD.
Ich Liebe Dich Alle! ❤️

*If I could speak all the languages of the earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be s noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.
