Encouragement Today and Motivation Monday
If you are blessed enough to have a friendship do not take it for granted. Each one should be cherished for it’s own relationship.
Each person has a personality that reflects a portion of yours which is why that friendship works for you and maybe not for someone else.
When we moved where we live now, I struggled for years to find a “new” friendship. I had never struggled with making friends before, but here I am, living in a new place with a new baby and I only knew a couple of people and they were my relatives.
I discovered as I struggled with this season of loneliness that the friendships I had were only temporal. Back then we didn’t have the social connections we have today with our computers, Facebook, Instagram accounts and cell phones. Back then you either picked up the phone and called someone or you wrote a note or sent a card in the mail.
You had to make a greater effort to stay in touch with your friends and loved ones. There wasn’t the instant gratification of social media or FaceTime .
To the person who knows this pain of loneliness, hang tough. God knows your heart and is preparing that perfect friend for you and will introduce you when He feels it is the perfect timing.
Have faith and be patient. When God blesses you with that friend, it will be sweeter then you could have possibly wished for.
I know this feeling all too well. I had to go several years without that special relationship, but when I least expected it, I met my best friend and we truly have a unique and special friendship that I could never have looked for had I settled for just any friend.
As a result of not being impatient and just jumping ahead of my desire, God blessed me richly with the ones I have now.
Over the past year and half to two years, God opened up the doors to some special people whom I call friends.
Not in a million years could I have picked any of these people who are in my life. Each and every of them hold a special place in my heart. Each one of them reflects a piece of my personality which contributes to our relationships. We compliment each other which allows for our friendships to blossom and grow.
My Lonely Friend, have faith, God will do this for you as well. Wait Him out and when you do, the blessings you will receive will be well worth the wait.
