We meet people for a reason. We make friendships be it for a long or short time, it’s all in the scope of the maker’s plan. It seems that’s been my story at different times of my adult life. When I feel like I don’t quite fit in, or something is missing, I make a friend then they are gone. For a time I thought God was putting people in my life for me to help. And it really seemed that I was an “ear” who would listen, or a “shoulder” to cry on, or someone’s friend when they had none. And it was okay because that was my path. I don’t get phased by things or people so much but …maybe I do now.
Today I made a friend and now is leaving. A friend that you need everyday at work, we all need that. But, it was for a spell, again. Perhaps someone else is coming in my path that I will give something to, or perhaps I will receive. I said I was ready for the move so here it is.
It’s 2016! A new beginning and new resolutions after much evaluating of the prior year. One being coming into blogging world more often. I’ve been away awhile. Tonight ends my winter break and I’ve had a chance to recharge and refuel! It was wonderful!
My day ends with a daily devotion of PRAISE. Praise can be song, words, dance, writing, poems, stories, testimony! I will begin my year with words and songs of praise. As I write in my journal which I’ve finished tonight, and ready to begin a new one, my spirit rejoices when I meditate on what praise means. It means to fill with joy for tomorrow, for work, for the weak and the struggling– to be strong for them. To be the light of the world they need, we need, our town needs, our country, our world needs! We need it, cannot be without it, it’s a gift, it’s amazing!
So let’s write a story, a poem, a song, and hug a friend. It’s a great way to begin the new year! It will be great!
For when I am weak
I am strong.
(2 Corinthians 12:10)
You never fail me, Lord.
I, on the other hand, always fail.
Thank you for your grace.
Your grace is always enough to
pull me through.
And when I finally come out,
you are there to hold me.
Just like you always have been.
