Sundays with Stassi: Forbidden LOVE -The Friend pt.2

The story continues…part 2 of The Friend

For years prior I had been praying with my prayer partners about various life issues: finishing graduate school, finding a career, relocating to a nice, safe city (specifically a city with tall buildings and an airport LBVS), finding a church home, and characteristics of my husband. Those traits were very specific spiritual characteristics of a Godly Man. On the night of the dream I went to bed with a heavy heart about my relationship. While I was sleeping I began to have a dream. In that dream a voice called out each characteristic that I had previously prayed about. Every time a different characteristic was called out, the same name and face appeared…but it was NOT my current boyfriend. That was the moment I knew the answer to my prayers. That was the moment that I knew it wouldn’t work anymore. I woke up in tears because I knew that…

Sundays with Stassi: Forbidden LOVE -The Friend pt.1

A solid friendship is how it all started more than 10 years ago. Nothing more. He had a girl. I had a guy. But there was an instant connection. He walked around portraying himself as this big, bad wolf, but anyone who really knew him knew that he was just a soft, caring teddy bear. The kind of bear that always magically appears in your view just when you need it. Remember when you thought you were a big girl and put all of your stuff animals away, but then when got your first dose of grown up realities you run to the toss away bin to grab it, cuddly up on your bed, and cry into it until the tears would come no more. Yeah, that kind of friend. The one who always wishes the best for you. The one who would always give you healthy dose of reality…

He called right after that meeting. He was nice. He was caring. He seemed to genuinely be concerned about my interests in ministry and where to place me. That conversation was completely innocent…but then it happened…he called again. It was about a week later and I was out of town on work-related business. He said he was just checking on me. He wanted to pray with me, so we started talking about me. —-Why did I move? What made me choose this church? Where do I work? Do I love my job? How much experience do I have serving in youth ministry?— We talked about a lot and I was comfortable sharing my story with him. After all, I was used to a youth pastor who was personable and easy to talk to whenever I needed to share. But this was different. There was something about his voice that mesmerized…

I was in a state of spiritual insecurity, confusion, and loneliness. I felt like God had dropped me in the middle of the wilderness and left me there to “fend for myself.” So I made a decision to try. To try to find a church home, a family, a place to call my own. A place where I could reconnect spiritually, to meet new people in this new place that I was forced to call home, and to serve in ministry. So I found a place, attended it, and even joined. I knew I couldn’t just be a pew member, so I immediately signed up for the youth ministry. After all, that’s where I always felt the most comfort. My passion was ministering, encouraging, and mentoring the young people, especially teenage girls. In my previous youth ministry was where my teaching skills were improved and where my spirit man on…

Forbidden Love…

He was a beautiful specimen. Single, no children, professional, and in that perfect age range. He lived on his own, so he was great at “keeping house” and even making some pretty tasty meals. More importantly, he loved the Lord and was growing in his relationship with Him. He cared for me. I could tell. We started spending too much time together, so THE TALK was imminent… “I’m not ready for a relationship. I’m not sure what I want.” That’s what he said, but his actions screamed, “I want you by my side. Don’t leave me. Give me a chance.” He had been hurt before. It was hard for him to trust again. His heart was under lock and key. I tried time and time again, but I couldn’t break through the walls. I gave up. I left.
According to the urban dictionary forbidden love is when you love someone…
