Five Minute Friday - "Friends"
It's Saturday- I know. I'm trying to get back into this five minute Friday writing again- because I find it to be so relaxing. Anyway- I'm back- just in time; because I really need to get showered and ready for the day.
Fridays word was "FRIENDS"
We hear it said time and time again that in order to have friends; one must be a good friend. In fact I just saw it on a school classroom door; just yesterday.
It made me think, not just think but take a moment to say a short prayer.
You see I have been so let down by friends that I have become super shy; and worried that I may not ever be someones best friend. Where does this come from?; I ask God. It stems from a horrible word called jealousy- Not jealous of people and their things- but a different kind. Jealous of other woman's friendships. They seem so unattainable to me; that I've found myself in a place of flat out giving up. With a focus on that I cannot realistically be a good friend.
But back to the poster on the door- It isn't about having friends- it really is about being a friend.
- this I do know...
I have a best friend- His name is Jesus- and he is showing me through His example of being my best friend- just how I can do the same for someone else.
And for this...I am grateful.
AND .... STOP.
5 minutes is up. Have a Great Weekend! I thank God for giving me a lot to reflect on.
