Never leave your wingman!

“Never leave your wingman!” When I heard those words spoken to Tom Cruise in the movie Top Gun, I remember thinking, why was that so important? I soon found that the most crucial relationship and group dynamic is exemplified in a jet fighter squadron. The reality is that when you are traveling at mach speed, your action and reaction to your partner is a matter of life and death. We can draw many principles and examples from this scenario. The most meaningful to me is that leaving is dangerous and sometimes destructive to others.

However, leaving someone has also been made to be humorous. The song, “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover,” was one of the songs that recommended some suggestions of how to end a relationship. Movies, Television, Magazines, etc., have all revealed and portrayed the stories of failed marriages, relationships, and even the closing of corporations. Suffice to say, leaving affects all of us.

Because of this, I have decided to blog and be the cheerleader of what it takes to remain in a relationship, and enjoy the longevity of those you love and work with. I hope you enjoy some brevity as we take a close look at longevity, and be encouraged and challenged not to leave those who are with you.
In the heart of a Christian we must find the heart of God who is committed to be aware, ready, and always there!  As is states in Hebrews 13:5; "Since God assured us, "I'll never let you down, never walk off and leave you," we can boldly quote,
God is there, ready to help;    I'm fearless no matter what.    Who or what can get to me?" (Message Bible)
