Let the Godly strike me!
It will be kindness!
If they correct me, it is soothing medicine.
Don't let me refuse it.

Loyalty.... I used to think that a loyal friend was someone who would stand by me and support me no matter what the circumstance or situation. I realize now that my definition was incomplete. While I do want supportive people around me, I do not want "yes men". I want people in my life who will call me on things that do not line up with the direction that God wants my life to go. Not attacking but causing me to assess...praying for me and with me through the process. I suppose that this shift is yet another sign that God is moving relationships in my life to a deeper level and for that I am thankful. I also suppose that it is a sign that he is more deeply maturing me!!!! At this point in my life, I am content not to resist! Do you love me? Then tell me what I need to hear and not what will appease me. If there is something in my life that may contribute to spiritual death, don't seal my grave by "walking in love" around the dirt that may bury me. Do you love me? If you see me sinking in any area, lift me up and pull me out. It is then that I will know that you truly care!
