For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God. Colossians 1:9
It is important that we surround ourselves with people of understanding to help draw out what God has planted deep within our soul to do, to see what we might otherwise miss, and to help us stay in touch with reality-not allowing ourselves to be deceived into seeing only what we want to see.
This type of relationship can only happen when we have great trust in the people who are in our lives. When we know that these people are loyal companions and have our back, we can relax; putting our guards down; being our authentic selves.
We must choose wisely whom we join ourselves with, because it has been proven through research that people who are even three degrees removed from us have some form of influence on our happiness, health, habits, and other life-directing areas. BE BLESSED!!!!
Let us therefore follow after the things which make for peace, and the things wherewith one may edify another. Romans 14:19
