3 TIERS OF FRIENDSHIP:

on Saturday, 24 March 2018.

Today we will be discussing the 3 tiers of friendship that are necessary for living a productive and fulfilling life.

What is friendship?

Friendship is the coming together of two or more people who are comfortable with one another and share some common interest and goals.

The 3 tiers of friendship are:

1) Mirror friendship

2) Cushion friendship

3) Stretch friendship.

These 3 tiers of friendship are very important in the growth of every individual.

The most popular tier of friendship is the 'Cushion friendship' - this friendship is usually between childhood friends who love you just the way you are.

It's comfortable, they share your ideologies, praise you and mourn with you, always telling you it's okay.

This kind of friendship has one big disadvantage - you can't grow in it.

This group of friends keep you happy but usually become judgemental when you aspire higher or differently from them.

The 3rd tier of friendship is the 'Stretch friendship' - this friendship is built on mentoring. They are where you desire to be or become.

It's not a comfortable relationship most of the time. They criticize you and rarely pat your back .

They are not there to check up on you daily but when you need them, they appear as a sounding board to correct and show you the way.

The 1st tier is the 'Mirror friendship' - this is the friendship that holds the 2nd and 3rd tier of friendship together.

It's a relationship that you have with yourself. A relationship that allows you to see the best of you and the worst of you.

It's the relationship that keeps you strong in the midst of the darkest storms and helps you laugh at your mistakes/situation.

The mirror relationship allows you to spend time with cushion friends without loosing sight of your dream and aspirations with your stretch friendship(s).

Mirror friendship thrives best when God is part of it. He becomes the mirror that helps us love ourselves, learn to love others; while aspiring to become a better you.

Today we leave you with this question:

Do you have this 3 tiers of friendship and how are you nurturing them?

Resting in His LOVE

on Tuesday, 24 October 2017.

What do you desire? A happily ever after, excellent children, successful career… name it it’s yours. We have been told that happiness stems from having all this and more.

 If this is true, why is it that some successful people go into drugs and sometimes commit suicide even when they have all these and much more?                    

This is simply because what we are really searching for is something to fill that void at the center of our being.

I’ve been there - Lord God, more money please, children, a great marriage please!!! Each answered prayer opened up new possibilities yet I was never completely happy or fulfilled..

Then I fell in love with Him. Falling in love with Him wasn’t so difficult; He has always had my back. As years went by, I realized that life situations still affected my joy. I will ask myself what’s happening, when things didn’t go my way. Does He still love me? What am I missing? Which actions do I need to perform to remain in God’s good book? The more I tried, the more I wondered what this salvation thing was all about.

One day I heard His voice say to me REST IN ME; REST IN MY LOVE. This was new to me! Rest? I began to come into His presence not necessarily to pray but to be still – there I found love so deep that no amount of wealth or unanswered prayers could shake me.

I began to realize that the important thing that feeds the core of man/woman is a relationship so deep and intimate with God his maker that nothing else seems to matter. This love is found in Jesus Christ and kept with the help of the Holy Spirit.

Now not only do I continually rest in His love but He has begun to bless me with all things.

I no longer fret over big or small situations, because I know that the DIVIDEND OF THIS INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP IS VICTORY ON ALL SIDES.

Love
