Uplifting Things

I had a long talk with my best friend today. We were talking about who we used to be and who are today. It is amazing to see how much we have grown since 4 years ago when we met. The things we've been through and the trials we have had together have just brought us closer and to who we are today.

When we met we were two completely different people. She has always looked to me to be her spiritual mentor and while I have been honored for her to see me as that I didn't always feel like I was the best person for the job. I have supported her through everything and been there so that she could have a shoulder to cry on. Our relationship has had its bumps in the road and its trials, but we have persevered through it and have remained friends. And I am so glad for that.

We have both grown so much in an amount of 4 years and part of that is because of the things we both went through in our lives. But now we have both grown so much in our spiritual lives with Christ. I have always been the person to call her out on her crap, but now she is so much stronger in her walk with Christ that she can also be that person for me.

It is so good to have accountability in your life. Not only is she the one who will tell me when I am controlling my life, or being a people pleaser, or anything else, she is also the person who tells me that I deserve a certain type of guy, that I don't need to think about what could be and focus on the present. She is a person who tells me that I deserve everything in the world and when I think that I should settle she tells me not to. But she is also the person who asks me about my walk with Christ and if she doesn't think that I am putting enough time in with Christ she tells me straight up. I am so thankful that she is my best friend and so thankful that she is able to do that for me. It is hard that she is not at college with me but I also have a new best friend up here to do that for me.

I am so thankful that God put people like this in my life because I truly needed it. After this year at college I realized some things. I know that we are called to make disciples of men and that we are to have non-christian friends. But living with non-christians is definitely a hard thing to do. I am grateful to have christian friends who are uplifting, but in order to give out and be that fisher of men you have to also have time with God and feed your spiritual life and your relationship with him.

I have grown so much with my relationship with Christ and I look forward to continuing growing with him. And I can't wait to see the amazing adventures my best friend and I have. I have more to say but more will come
