Building Relationships

Hello Hearers, 
I will be sharing about relationships. I have been blessed to have a big family and friends that I have known since junior high school. It is great having friends and family that will stop what they are doing and come help when it's needed. Having friends for such a long time know your highs and know before you hit your low. I am a friend that runs spiritually in prayer if I can't be there physically which is very challenging with kids and other unexpected life events. 

Interpersonal relationships are to create a strong deep connection with two or more. To develop a sense of security and comfort. Also to foster trust and cooperation.  A trust like Yahshua had with YAH that knowing the plan and seeing that cup and trusting in YAH  he would rise and live again. All interpersonal relationships are built on loyalty, support, trust, and love.  

When we first meet someone boundaries do need to be set. People need to know how to respect you and what you will allow. Can you trust that this person has your best interest at heart? Is this person accountable and reliable, will they be there when they say they will be there? While keeping a forgiving relationship when things do come up for someone; because life happens.

Relationships take time. It takes time getting to know someone's likes and dislikes by asking questions to get to know them better.  Remembering their birthday and special events. Having the ability to accept them for who they are and where they are. What is his or her art and what are their gifts? If you do run into bad or challenging moments with this person, having the understanding where their hurt comes from. Keeping the armor of YAH on, so their hurt does not become your hurt. Give them room to grow and encourage them along the way. Build the relationship, by helping them grow in maturity. In relationships, you learn from one another. Be open to constructive criticism, always be willing to learn. Your best relationships will be so strong they will be unbreakable.      

My relationships have gotten stronger since knowing YAH and Yahshua. I have learned to be a better listener. There is no greater listener than YAH. The better that I have gotten to know the creator of all, the better  I have gotten to know my true self. I am now able to recognize his greatness in other people. The relationship is continuous, I can share everything.  The conversation is picking up right where it left off. He welcomes you with open arms and doesn't give you a hard time of how long it has been. When you build your relationship with YAH and Yahshua first, other relationships come easily.   

John 3:16 ~ For YAH so love the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 15:13 ~ Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

Ephesians 4:2 ~ With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;

Colossians 3:23 ~ And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to YAH and not unto men;

Proverbs 17:17~ A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
