    A Hearts Desire

    Friendship and Companionship are two things that our hearts desire. These two words have been debat-ed over time. Some would say that they both have the same meaning, while others would suggest that they are completely different. No matter what your take is on these two words, it would be safe to say that we all have experienced problems with one or both. Through the course of life many people come into our lives; some are seasonal while others prove to be life long in their loyalty. Nevertheless everyone who comes into our lives makes some kind of impression and leaves some type of mark. We often question if those we label as friend are actually living up to the meaning of the word. Through the difficulties of con-flict and the uncertainties of situations, we press to-wards a better understanding of the happenings of life.

    Friendship is a personal relationship shared be-tween people for the welfare or well being of each other. Its a relationship of trust and concern for each others feelings and general well being.. It is a rela-tionship of mutual caring and intimacy among one another. A friend is one who knows you as a person and regards you for who you are. Friendship involves feelings of comfort and emotional safety with a per-son. True friendship is perhaps the only relation that survives the trials and tribulations of time and re-mains unconditional.

    Companionship is a closeness or true fellowship among people who for some reason have connect-ed. It is the word that comes to mind when you hear the words life-long partners. Companion-ship involves connecting with someone on more than just a physical level; it involves connecting with someone on a spiritual, emotional and men-tal level. Companionship extends beyond like and penetrates the realm of being in love.

    As we experience the world of dating, so often we become discouraged when we cant seem to find what will satisfy our hearts desire. Many times we feel as though we have exhausted the possibility of finding true love. So often we settle for less than we deserve, all because we dont think that we will ever find our hearts counter point in an-other. As we continuously fall victim to less than we deserve, feelings of never discovering the glory of one saved for us become inevitable.

    Many relationships end with both parties dislik-ing one another. Through the hurt and pain of disappointment, we constantly put forth our best efforts to make the next time the right time. So often we never examine how we go about choos-ing someone to date. Our approach to dating seems to be more trial and error than prayer and purposeful. One could argue that dating has to be trial and error because youre taking a chance on someone you dont know. I would argue that con-tinuous chances on perfect strangers will most likely lead to unforeseen circumstances and un-fulfilled expectations.

    Men and women are guilty of complaining to much about the opposite sex. The problem gener-ally lies with us, but were so focused on what we dont have that we ignore why we dont have it. Our selection process lacks Prayer, Purpose and Privacy. We have to be prayerful about who we potentially allow into our lives. There also needs to be a purpose being fulfilled for people to come together and connect on a higher level. Our deci-sion to allow someone into our lives needs to be free from outside influence. So often others want us with who they think we need and not who our hearts truly desire. All of us know good women and good men, but the question is this; have we ever thought about dating them? So often we al-low fear to consume our lives and cloud our thinking. The best relationships come out of

    friendship. So often we have a friend of the opposite sex who possesses the qualities that we desire in a life long companion. Many times this individual makes us feel special and loved by the small things that they do. They make us smile by simply say-ing exactly what we needed to hear in the moment. We generally enjoy being around this person. They know how to brighten our day with an encouraging word. They are always their to listen; and they know when to just let us vent and when to give a word of advise. They even know our love language without us telling them what it is; it seems to be their native tongue as well. In our hearts we know this person would never betray our trust or harm us in any way. We know them to be a great person, but we dont think we deserve their affec-tion. Those that we know are our friends make it no secret that they love us. Love is the fabric of relationships, but happiness is the hem that holds the fabric together. There is always a friend of the opposite sex who truly makes us happy by simply being there. We even find them attractive, but fear causes us not to admit that were also attracted to them. Sometimes the one that we have been waiting for has been in our lives afraid to admit to us the very thing that were afraid to admit to them!

    Our fear in this regard comes from this question; What if I lose my friend? A true friend is there in all the seasons of your life, not just the ones where its conven-ient. Friends can tell each other anything because true friends respect each others emotions and feelings. Your companion should end up being your best friend be-cause this is the one who you will spend your life with! Anyone in your life fit this mold? Pray without ceasing and know this; some things come only through fasting and prayer. No one can be your companion for life unless they are first your friend! Speak now or forever hold your peace!

    Grace and Peace
