Today I had an opportunity to #WalkWithAFriend who needed a listening ear. It was more about me understanding than her seeking advice. This walk was so much MORE than #showingUp365ForMe to put another trek in the books but rather about me being present, fully present to listen and not judge. I experience GREAT JOY when creating safe places for purposeful, life-changing conversations. Since becoming a self-care Freedom Fighter turned self-care steward, I not only help to give voice to the transformational benefits of self-care but also create and/or support organizations and advocates who are committed to empowering others to live free and thrive.
I am my sister's keeper. To see her...to hear her...and be fully present as she cries out. I will pray for and with her believing GOD who is attentive to her cries. THE LORD has given me HIS GRACE to walk alongside to comfort and care for my sister.
2 Corinthians 1:3-5 The Passion Translation (TPT)
3 All praises belong to the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. For HE is the FATHER of tender mercy and the GOD of endless comfort. 4 HE always comes alongside us to comfort us in every suffering so that we can come alongside those who are in any painful trial. We can bring them this same comfort that GOD has poured out upon us. 5 And just as we experience the abundance of CHRIST's own sufferings, even more of GOD’s comfort will cascade upon us through our union with CHRIST.
By the GRACE OF GOD, I am changing my health narrative AND supporting others in #CelebratingLife365 #30mins5xWeek.
