There’s No Distance in the Spirit

“I am still getting used to this long distance / no distance in the Spirit relationship we have.”

This was a text I had sent to one of my best friends/sisters. Reading it back now, it sounds like a corny pick up line.  However, it’s the truth.  My sister Nicole is one of those few people that I don’t even need to tell I am dealing with something.  She can sense it in her Spirit and will call me and vice versa.  We have known each other for almost 10 years. God used her as an extremely real and present catalyst, for me to begin the healing process of forgiving myself from past hurts.

She is that one person (outside of my husband) that I chose to remain in covenant with. Seriously, I am not even trying to be funny.  Nicole and I took communion before we became roommates and decided that the Word of God would be the final authority in our friendship.  We lived together for 5 years until I married and moved away to join my husband in Houston.
