Single vs attached

I have endured both. I have celebrated both. I’ve been single. I’ve been attached. I’ve been married. I’ve been divorced. I’ve been rematched with someone else. Like life always expects, it all must be balanced.

We must be able to understand someone else’s feelings to better understand what life is asking of us. How does my friend feel when I go through all of those changes? How do I feel when my friends go through all those changes? Am I balanced in it?

Are we equally respecting each other’s season of life?

We need friends. And we most definitely need the support. It’s an awful life to be without someone there to pick you up when you have fallen down.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

9 Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.

In Job, when life was really coming down on him and everything was wrong, his friends came and stayed with him. They didn’t even say a word to him. They just were there; exactly what he needed.

Job 2:11

11 When Job’s three friends, Eliphaz the Temanite, Bildad the Shuhite and Zophar the Naamathite, heard about all the troubles that had come upon him, they set out from their homes and met together by agreement to go and sympathize with him and comfort him

Let’s go out and try to be the best friend we can be. Only you and your friends know what that means. But make sure it’s positive and pure and build each other up and MOST DEFINITELY focus your lives on God.
