life as it is seen from my heart and soul

transparency and vulnerability

Leave a comment

it hasn’t happened in a long while. to be transparent, vulnerable, completely honest with a person.
why? why can we not trust each other? why must we use what we know about people against them? why? we need each other. we need to trust other people to have community in our lives. we cannot do life without each other.
Jesus was transparent, only He was totally misunderstood. He said things that there was no context for ~ future speak.
i have the past. it follows me everywhere. it has shaped me and molded me. and then Jesus enters into the past. i see where He saved me, i see where He prayed for me as i made horrible choices in my life, and then i see how He has directed me to work for the Kingdom.
so back to vulnerability. hands down the best thing i have done. granted i don’t do it with everyone ~ lets just say i haven’t done it in like 20 years because of what happened the last time.
so i have waited. and waited. and patiently i waited. i wondered would there be someone. is there a human out there (besides my husband) to share life with?
and there is. one that listens and does not judge me. one that wants the best for me, no matter where it takes me. one that prays for me. my Sister in Christ.
and i am grateful. so grateful it overwhelms me. a kindred spirit in my life. WOW. Anne’s definition was this: “an intimate friend, you know—a really kindred spirit to whom I can confide my innermost soul. I’ve dreamed of meeting her all my life.” thank you Anne.
