Pour Into HerBefore you become someone's big sister you have to become their acquaintance and you have to learn them by realizing what they need before they even mention it in words. You learn things about your sister by praying in faith that God… Click To Tweet
A few weeks ago I found myself clearing the list on my personal Facebook page, and as I begin to remind myself that cleansing from people places, and things are self-care. I use to always feel like I would be doing myself a disservice if I allowed myself to unplug from people that I thought I desired in my life, and the more I become whole, happy, and free in my choice as a woman I now see things from a broader perspective when it comes to making healthy life choice for myself.
I use to always look at the potential in women, and would always have this nagging notion to push them into their purpose when they were not ready to fully come out of the sin, and or lifestyle that they were comfortable in. I get it because I was once there a time or two in my life. I had to remember that while God was calling me I was yet ignoring Him, and chasing a man that was no good for me, and leaving behind purpose to indulge in sexual sin.
The terms of sisterhood dodes not stop just because the disconnect has begin to take place. Go back, and read that sentence again.
Having compassion for your sister is so important it’s the right of passage to lean in softly in communicating that you care about her heart, her well being, and her action of purpose cominn into reality the way God intended in His will for her life.
Somethings I’ve learned when it comes to pouring into the lives of my sister is things have to conducted in a timely order based on the instruction that God gives me to release. I want to say this, and hear me clearly…
Just because God shows you a thing or two does not mean that you release if He has not permitted you to do so. You must understand the release of something when God is showing you how to come out of a trail. There’s a measure of grace that God will give you, and as he gives it to you, you must extend that same grace unto your sisters’.
Pouring into your sister does not always have to be how you think it should go but how God is leading your heart.
Let’s tug on the heart for a moment...
Have you ever set out time just to listen to the pain echoing in the tone of your sister’s voice, and without any reason to stop her and comfort her you just allow her to speak her hearts truth? if you have asnwered no or kind of than I encourage you to fix your heart posture when it comes to really seeing the tool of having a hearing ear in sisterhood.
Sometimes struggles come that catches you off guard.
Hey sis! You have the right to fight back from the lies of defeat that the enemy tries to lay on you! WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS ABOUT STRESS, WORRY & ANXIETY!
You’ve been caught off guard by any of a thousand unwelcome circumstances
A frightening diagnosis. A financial setback A deadline you can’t meet. A relationship you can’t repair. A global pandemic disrupting every aspect of life
The possibilities are endless. The result is the same. Stress, worry, and anxiety overtake you. Perhaps they have paralyzed you just when you most need clear thinking or decisive action! But you are frozen in fear. Regardless of the source of anxiety you face, the Bible offers followers of Jesus some simple, yet profound advice
DO NOT BE ANXIOUS The Apostle Paul, a man who endured a chronic ailment, financial hardship, physical abuse, and persecution for his faith, wrote the following words while sitting in a prison cell
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:6-7 If you didn’t know his circumstances, you might assume the author is naïve.“Am I supposed to pretend everything is fine and ignore my anxiety?” But Paul’s advice allows neither pretending nor ignoring. It instead encourages three steps
1.Be anxious for nothing.
2..With prayer making your request known to God.
3.Have a thankful heart regardless of what you’re facing
Here are some important things to think about when
it comes to sisterhood…
- How have you added value to the woman that you call your sister?
- How have you interceeded on her behalf without mentioning it to anyone but God?
- How have you walked in obedience when God told you to impart into your sister?
- How have you reconciled the heart of your sister when you’ve crossed lines of communication?
Sometimes God will remove a sister from your life for a time or forever!
