Good Morning. I don’t usually blog in the morning, but today I am just going to try something different.
After spending a fair amount of time feeling sorry for myself, for reasons that are just about what I think I need, I am starting this day with a newer vision. I realize that people are fallible. I sure am. I make mistakes. Sometimes unknowingly and sometimes not. I can apologize when the reality smacks me square in the face. But moving forward instead being held back by my unwanting to come to terms of what is.
People change. Situations change. Sometimes my “old” brain struggles to keep up. But, it’s a new week. I have a whole 7 more days of living differently this week. Tonight I am meeting up with an old friend. I am sure we will have lots of laughs, maybe tears, who knows. What I do know is that being with old friends remind me of how far I have come. I will relish in the changes I have made along with the changes of my friend. Life isn’t meant to be alone.
This week’s message at http://live.lifechurch.tv is about “Two-Gather”. The message is all about having the right people around us. This is an important biblical principle for all of us, but it’s especially important for new believers. New believers need to be surrounded by Christians who can encourage and support them in the life-changes they’re making to follow Christ. Life is best done in community. ”For where two or three gather together as my followers, I am there among them. Matthew 18:20 NLT
Today, I am doing life together. With fellow students in class, with old friends and new. We weren’t meant to be alone.
I challenge you today to share with someone your life. Be it a friend, neighbor, co-worker. Smile, talk, have a coffee together. That is what life is all about. I am with YOU heart and soul!!
“The continual awareness of what was going on made me feel ashamed I wasn’t saying anything. I burst out because I could no longer play that game any more, it was just too much for me.”
