Embrace Friendship.


One resolution of mine was to embrace friendship. It's important that I do this because I am somewhat of a hermit. I find it easier to avoid the vulnerability of being a friend than to risk being disappointed. But being alone isn't what God intended for His children. Companionship is a gift from Him.

The truth is--we're human and we will disappoint our friends numerous times. What I have learned this past year is that pursuing relationships with Godly women is worth it.

I have made two really great life-long friends. I didn't realize how lucky I was to have them until I was no longer living with them. They have taught me so much about grace, unconditional love (since I can be a huge pain in the butt), and living life with a kind spirit. I admire and appreciate them more than they will ever know.

I'm still really awkward at making new friends, but here is what I have learned in the past 6 months...

1) To surround yourself with christian friends is the most important and rewarding thing.

and

2) There isn't a closer bond to form with a friend than to pursue Christ together.

I have a LONG ways to go in the friendship department, but I am truly blessed to have these wonderful women in my life.
