So last night I stayed up late working on this blog and the future blog I have in progress. Blogging is a lot harder than you think. I mean the writing comes natural to me, but trying to make sure you have the right design, what’s on the blog, what might help your income and what won’t work. After about 1 a.m. I went to bed.
This morning, of course I didn’t hear my phone ring, but when I checked my phone there was a message from one my best friends asking how I was and that she was praying for me. My last post was about my online bible study and this touched my heart, almost like a tug of fear leaving. I mean, not a bad fear, just a fear of knowing that no matter what, she would be there.
This really got me to thinking about my not so current situation anymore, but the people who have reached out to me, prayed for me, and continue to keep our friendship going although I may not see them like I used to. A job does not define who your friends are. You do. The ones that stick by you, the ones who will continue to pray for you and hope that you are still doing well regardless of any situation.
This made me realize that my friends hold such a significant part of my life, and making an effort to keep them in my life should be one of my higher priorities. Not that I don’t now, but to make more of an effort to do more. Yes you argue, get mad, you get tired of hearing the same ole story, or problem, but that’s what make your friend, your friend. That person trusts you enough to confide in you and you should see that as a blessing and just listen.
I thank God that I am truly blessed with such great friends. People do come into your life for many reasons, some are meant to stay and others aren’t. If you haven’t reached out to your friend, today is that day. Life is too short not to have a friend that will continue to wish you well and pray for you.
