Do you feel discouraged when you see a loved one in pain but find it difficult to save them? Their pain can be an emotional one stemming from uncertainties or even angst in life. One thing is for sure. It causes a high level of uneasiness in both them and you. It’s easy at times to walk away and escape or try very hard to “fix” things. But the truth is that you are not in control and it can be difficult to remember this or even believe this. The right thing to do is to pour them with love and support, not a quick fix. Then, most importantly, pray, pray and pray for God to carry out what is in your heart for your loved one.

Words are easy to say, it only takes a breath to utter them. But it’s much more difficult to be a reliable friend. It requires consistent communication, thoughtful awareness of feelings, and opening yourself up in vulnerable times. Don’t be too quick to say you are a loyal friend who is without any reliable friends. Have you been supporting your friends in a way that shows them you are reliable? If not, do you have a valued friend who needs you right now?

Im just a girl. I love being called pretty, but I’ll never believe it. Im not always right, but I hate admitting I’m wrong. Im always smiling, but its not always real. I can be read like an open book, but I hide so much. I work hard at things, but I dont always get what I deserve. Im just a girl. πŸ˜πŸ‘§πŸ™†

Oh Lord, you know first hand how foolish we can be! Most of our foolishness revolves around pride and selfishness. Perhaps we’ve criticized others for something we, ourselves, have done. Or maybe we took advantage of someone and didn’t realize we were doing it. With time and maturity we can usually look back on our actions and see the errors of our ways. But we cannot hide our foolishness from you, nor would we want to. Lord, we pray you reveal to us the foolishness of our ways and show us if we can heal any wounds we’ve created.
