An unexpected message

Long story short: A stranger-friend (someone from our church who I just met) landed in my office today to talk about various church things. On a side-note he said something that resonated with me and made me stir in my chair.

"Who is your life-coach?" This was his question and it got me thinking. Who is the person that sees me from the outside and loves me anyway? Who is the person I call every week, encourages me, and also isn't afraid to challenge me or to help me think differently?

There are a few people like that in my life and I am so grateful for them. God has the craziest ways of reminding us what's important. I'm going to pick up the phone.
