Sometimes life puts us in places where we don’t want to be or understand why we're there. Yet God knows why–and for how long. Jesus himself knew trust when he came to earth to do his father’s will.
God supplies all our needs, even friendships when we need them most. He places people in our lives in times and circumstances to help us through. It’s when to let go of those relationships, and trust in the Father... and in ourselves, that we find it hard.
Often our past relationships put us through hurts and pain and when we dare to trust again, when we dare to be a friend and accept friendship, do we realize that there's still hope. Trust is not always easy to find in a friendship, and when you find that friend, it’s hard to say goodbye... when and if that time is needed.
Yes, situations change again and again, sometimes through time and circumstances but we need to step out in faith and allow the Lord to close one door so He can open another.
There's no shame in daring to hope but God’s plan is perfect and for our benefit and so His glory can be revealed. He will never leave us, neither will He take us and move us forward with a strength which we may have thought we had lost forever. God will provide us with every need, including friendships.
“But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31 (NIV)
Father, you are always with us and you know our every situation. You know exactly what we need at the very time we need them, and who is needed to guide us through. You also know when we need to let go and step out in faith, trusting in new tomorrows. Lord, thank you for opportunities to know true friendship and when to say goodbye to someone who we dared ourselves to trust. Amen.
