It’s really true that we need each other. We may walk in the light for a while on our own, but our vision gets clouded; we stumble; we run into roadblocks; we get confused. We each have at least one someone in our life who is a good listener. Hopefully, that person does more than help us throw a pity party; hopefully, he or she can help us find center again–help us sort through the haze and fog and find what it is that God is telling us. Thanks to the handful of people in my life who help me stay on track. You are a blessing beyond words. If you don’t have a person like that–find one!!!! Take some risks and make some mistakes; be that kind of friend (or daughter 🙂 ) and God will see that there is someone there for you, too. People like that take time to find but are worth the effort.
Thought for the day
“Iron sharpens iron, so one man (or woman) sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17
“No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening–it is painful! But afterward there will be a quiet harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way. So take a new grip with your tired hands and stand firm on your shaky legs. Mark out a straight path for your feet. Then those who follow you, though they are weak and lame, will not stumble and fall but will become strong. Try to live in peace with everyone, and seek to live a clean and holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord. Look after each other so that none of you will miss out on the special favor of God. Watch out that no bitter root of unbelief rises up among you, for whenever it springs up, many are corrupted by its poison.” Hebrews 12:11-15

It was good to talk to you last night. I hope you are having a great day. You are so right about having those in your life that support you…God made us relational, He doesnt want us to do this life on earth alone, he puts people there…some to try and test, some to hold us up and some to walk along side of us…I am blessed to be your friend!
And you are a great blessing to me. I hope you’re feeling better and rested today. Take care!!
