Let’s Chit Chat About Those Stuff

This past week the focus of my Blog was mostly on successful/healthy living from God’s perspective. But as we approach the horizon of yet another week in this new year, I will turn the focus for a brief moment on relationship, friendship, love and the power that lies with it. There are many today who I believe can do with a relationship makeover – whether it’s business, platonic or intimate etc. As it relates to friendship, there are those of us who for whatever reason have lost some friends along the way. For others that are single and maybe still searching for that person who we can definitely say, “Aha, he/she is truly the love of my life,” can do with a few tips on what exactly to look for. Already found your true love and married, a few tips will be offered to you as well, that is, beyond the, “I Do.” Having said that….

Ralph Waldo Emerson Waldo on the matter of friendship once said, “The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, nor the kindly smile nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when they discover that someone else believe in them and is willing to trust them.” There is absolute truth to this concept!


The reason being is that, too many times why relationships fail, is because not enough time was spent making the discovery about our own self, our spiritual beliefs and who we truly are as this tri-partied being placed on this earth before moving towards knowing someone else to develop a bond with them. If I don’t know me, and understand me, then there is no point in me trying to know or even understand someone else. I am no relationship expert, but I have learned from my own personal experience, that it is best to start with knowing God, our Creator who would then teach all things there is to know – that is, truth!

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” (Genesis 1:26-27) And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone;I will make him an help meet for him….And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof………Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” (Genesis 2: 18, 21-24)

Let us love God first and foremost with all of our heart, might, soul and strength and then others as we love ourselves. Relationship matters!

This discussion will continue…

Yvonne is a positive thinker, a catalyst for change, and a conduit through which holistic healing takes place and destiny is fulfilled. Her ministry through her blog, Empowerment Moments, came at a very low point in her life and was born out of much adversity, persecution, physical abuses, and rejection to the point of her being suicidal. She was left feeling defeated and shrunk back by fear. But through some miraculous means, God has given her pain purpose and a unique voice through which He speaks to touch the untouchable, to reach the unreachable and to empower, inspire, motivate, encourage and uplift the hurting and spiritually wounded to bring about healing and wholeness - mind, body, soul and spirit, one person at a time.

  1. Hi Michelle, totally with you on this, I also struggle with knowing when to let go and move on…I somehow think that maybe if I just stick around a little bit longer, it will get better. But not always the case. Blessings!
