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 ❣️
How do you ever know your thinking or actions are off if no one ever tells you. Sometimes we think our learned and established behavior or thought patterns are wise and correct. Truth be told, we ALL need that someone who is unbiased and cares enough to challenge our possibly wrong thinking/behavior. Woe be it unto the man who is never challenged in that manner or never challenges those close to them. ~Iron Sharpens Iron~BHicks
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 ❤️

It’s uncanny how easily people connect to you in your weakness but disconnect from you in your strength. Backwards World. Most would rather find comfort in their lesser man being unchallenged in the presence of those whom share their weakness. Few desire that their greater man be challenged by those that speak to their strength helping to exterminate their weakness.
This is fear. Why fear being better?
If you envision your tomorrow the same way you see your today, you may as well die now.
Step out of your comfort zone.
Ich Liebe Dich Alle❤️
Imagine how GOD feels when someone with the wrong kind of love ethics say they love HIM.
I would imagine HIM saying words similar to this.
“Yes you say you love me, but your friends and family don’t know you love me. You rarely, if ever, talk about me.
You say you love me but you treat and talk about your fellow man with hatred and judgment.
You say you love me, but you don’t know what it’s like to bask in my presence. As a matter of fact, you don’t even recognize when I’m in the room.
You say you love me but when you’re around those who need to know me, you don’t introduce me.
You say you love me but you only worship me when things go wrong.
You say you love me, but you don’t read my word.
You say you love me but find so many reasons to be absent from my church.
How do you love me? Let me count the ways.
You love me for what I can do for you…that’s the best I can say. One day you will recognize the error of your ways. But remember I’ll still love you for the rest of your days. Yet, your days would be better…if you knew…how to love ME.
