A real sister won’t judge you.

“Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results” James 5:16, New Living Translation.

The fear of being judged can cause us to not open up like we should.

After opening up about an issue that I had held onto for fear of being judged or preached at, a friend told me, “Why are you acting like you’re alone? You’re not alone! I deal with the same thing and God is working on me too.” That blessed me and was not the response I thought I would hear. We then talked further about our fears and insecurities, and by the end of the conversation we were both laughing, crying and bringing our hearts to the Lord in prayer. It was a beautiful moment. If I would have closed my heart from sharing honestly with her, I would have missed an opportunity to grow closer with my sister and dear friend.

The closeness you desire in your relationships is found in your openness and honesty. Be careful not to assume that your sister in Christ will respond negatively to your pain or problems. A real sister won’t judge you or put you down. She’ll provide love and comfort. She’ll remind you that she is also still being conformed to the image of Jesus and are being worked on just like you.

Be a real sister to someone, and let someone be a real sister to you. A real sister and friend won’t judge you.

Prayer: I praise You Father God and I thank You for speaking directly to my heart. I know I’m not alone in the things I face. You said you will deliver me from all my fears. Deliver me Lord from the fear of rejection. You love me and so does the people you’ve placed in my life. Help me remember that when it comes time to open up about what I’m dealing with. Help me to be a real sister and show me how to let others be a real sister to me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read Psalm 34:4; Romans 8:29; Ephesians 2:4)

  6. You are not responsible for other people’s feelings.walking on eggshells is a danger sign.do not betray self or lose self. Be more possitive.don’t keep going back to the Same thing expecting different results…thats the definition of insanity
    . have boundaries. Let the good in
    Keep the bad out. Not wall’s have gates.don’t let anyone including yourself condemn you for having a need.if they don’t show an interest in you but only try to control and manipulate you say bye bye.stop people pleasing. If they don’t receive you kick the dust off your feet and move on. Ya can’t force solutions. Have courage of your convictions. Focus on self.you can’t control.what other people think or do.don’t keep on bringing up other peoples past or your own
    Love Barbara.
