Friday!!!! Did I say that it is FRIDAY?! Why, yes. Yes I did!
1 Thessalonians 5:11 NIV11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
The last two weeks have been very educational for me. We all know there are a lot of hurting people out there. But, lately, this fact has really hit home with me.
I have several people in my close circle that, well, that are just suffering. Each one has a different circumstance. Each problem is very different from the other one. Yet, they all have something in common: they need someone to encourage them.
We put our ultimate trust in God. We trust Him, we lean on Him, and we call out to Him. But, He did not create relationships “just because”. No, He knew we would NEED each other.
There will be times that you need someone to stand with you, to cry with you, to pray with you, to just be with you. At other times, people are going to need you. Are you ready for that? Be sure to keep your heart open to the hurts around you. Be an encourager.
We need each other.
