What greater comfort to know that someone is beside you in rough times!
In the journey of faith it is a key component to have a trusted person at your side. David had Johnathan, Elijah had Elisha, Jesus and Peter and on and on we see people having trusting bonds of connection.
For most of my life through fears, anxieties, worry, and doubt that I had made myself an island by manifesting the very things I gave power to.
To want a friend/trusted companion in life I first had to be one. Im still learning, but I do hope that I am getting better with the one God has given me that I can trust my secrets with, my darkness with, and the light with. She has allowed me to grow my trust and heal it at my own pace and for that I am greatful.
I have and want to continue to learn that I must not be selfish and learn to fight the fight of faith not just for myself but for my trusted person along my side.
I need to soldier up in the word of God and continue to learn the fruit of the spirit and grow in their usage in my life to stand firm along side them if they need it and not just me needing that support from them all the time. But to give some in return what has been graciously given to me.
The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also. Suffer hardship with me, as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No soldier in active service entangles himself in the affairs of everyday life, so that he may please the one who enlisted him as a soldier.
2 Timothy 2:2-4 NASB
Being a devoted soldier is going through the boot camp training of the word and allowing its power to convict the wrong/toxic things within me to allow cleansing to please God and be a good soldier for the Kingdom of God walking in my purpose and Gods plan for me.
Is it easy?
No, but it is a matter taking more of the old person I have been off and putting on the new that is in Christ Jesus.
