I'll Get By With A Little Help From My Friends






Today, let's get real, o.k.? Can we? We're close, right? I've been noticing that too many times, the busy-ness that's life takes us over. It can begin to feel like life is leading us, rather than the other way around. It becomes really easy to lose focus on what's most important. Relationships. When God created man, He knew that it was good and perfect in every way, but He could see that Adam was lonely. Then came Eve. His companion, his lover, his friend. Then it was perfect. Man needs companionship to thrive. We depend on one another for love and comfort and that's just the way God intended. So what are friends? Is friend more of an adjective we use to describe some one's status in our life. I've let life take me over. I've let it's busy-ness fill me and all my time. Our children and our husband are gifts entrusted in our care by God, but our friends have also been placed on our paths by God for reasons that we may or may not understand. Friend should not be an adjective used to describe another person, but an ACTION



It happens to all of us. We get all wrapped up in life and forget what's most important. It's happened to me. Has it happened to you? So here's a friendly reminder to you and me both. Look around at your bestest friends, what might they need and what can you do for them? I think that if we go back to the very beginning and see what all God created, we'll see that we were put here to take care of one another and love on one another. To care for others as we would like to be cared for. Sound familiar? Yeah, Jesus said that. It's so easy to get distracted and our priorities get all out of whack. So, let's make a pact, let's promise that today we will look around at our friend's lives and see if there is any way we can actively improve their life. Pinky swear, k? Then come back and tell me in the comments what you did and how it helped your friend. Let's inspire one another! Let's lift one another up today! So, shoo, get going, take action! I know I'm gonna!

  1. Great post. I know that a few months back I looked at my life and the busyness of it and I was missing my friendships. So I did something about it and made sure to make time to fellowship more with my friends.
