Do you have “that friend” who sits quietly while you pour your heart out? She may ask for clarification along the way but otherwise she just lets you talk.
The beauty of this type of friend is that she isn’t just staring into space hoping you’ll be done “whining ” soon. No, she is listening to every word, watching your body language & facial expressions as she unravels the chaos in your life.
AND when you’re ready…but only when your ready…she speaks truth into your life. Not just feel-good platitudes but real truth with solid advice.
My friend Cindy is that friend for me. She is not afraid of the hard conversations & has on more than one occasion “talked me off the ledge”.
The good news is that even if you don’t have an earthly friend like my BFF, you do have a friend in Heaven who is a “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6b. What more does a girl really need?
