Someone to help you up!

In my Good Morning Group, I am getting to know some great people.  Sometimes it is hard to let yourself out there.  To tell about your past.  To let people know where you have stumbled, fell.  But without letting this out, I would not have gotten to know some of these wonderful women.  God brings people in your life to help you, and when he brings someone to me that has had a similar background it is so awesome.  I like the feeling of not being alone, in my struggles.  I have many great christian friends that I know are always there for me, but sometimes its nice to be able to talk to someone that relates so well to your story!
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 says, "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up.  But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!"

I like these verses, sometimes when you stumble and fall it's so easy to just stay down.  The next time you fall it will not hurt because you won't  fall so far.  But it is those people that have been through what you have, that have had the same hard times that you can look at and say, I can do it.  They have went through it and got back up, so I can too!   The hard part is putting yourself out there so that you can meet and get to know those people.  So I challenge you to put yourself out there, connect with a new friend.  You will be amazed at what you have in common and enjoy together, someone that can help you up too!

Forever Changing,

  1. If you had a "love it" button to this post I would have clicked it!!! :) Reading your post BLESSES my heart! I'm a firm believer in "glorifying God with our dirt" We need to share with others where we have been and how God redeemed us!!! Sharing our stories with wisdom....I always love how Beth Moore shares her stories but doesn't give all the details. When we do share where we have come from and how God has worked in our lives to change us, we encourage those who are in that same situation! Ohhhh I'm so glad God brought just the right person to your GMG group!!!That's one of the many prayers I've been praying over all of you!!! Thank you also for being willing to open up. I know that can be hard!

    Love God Greatly!!!!
