WHEN 'FRIENDS' FLY AWAY
Free to Share
Author requests article critique
when people we call friends vanish because we have come to a sort of stand still in our lives it hurts but we have to be strong in the Lord.
i recently had to deal with this situation in my life! it was not an easy one when it was time to go to college in Ghana and everybody left me sitting at home. In Ghana, it is a big deal if it goes this way for you because many people turn to regard you as a failure. I was not a faiure though. i was awaiting my blessing. i was waiting on God to make me th head and not the tail. i wanted to go to Whitworth University in the United States. the application process had delayed and all my friends had done their first semester in college and i was still a home praying for my miracle to happen. people who used to smile turned their backs and walked away.my cell phone was dead silent.
During this period loneliness was my closest friend but then another friend came along. God was drawing me closer to Himself. i began to have a better Bible study and my faith grew. The things of God became more appealing. In short, i grew in grace! i experienced Jesus like never before!
When the manifestation of His word finally came, all i had to do was give Him thanks not try and get back at people and try to laugh at them. it didn't matter who had left my life. all that mattered was what was ahead of me.All that mattered was doing more to know Him!
So today, lets learn a lesson together. Many of the people who walk out of your life probably don't belong in your life. The real people who belong in your life are right before your. They don't look rich or physically attractive. They rarely go to the fancy places in town. They are not graduates from an ivy league school.they are just ordinary people.But you don't want them because your standards are worldly. It's not like there is anything wrong with having rich, beautiful/handsome and well educated friends but if that is what your definition of a good friend is then you may have missed the mark. Open your eyes and look! Live your life with God in your sight! forget about your past failures and live for the best God is offering you.
If you need anything more, pick up The Book and read it! it has all you need!Jesus remains the best friend you can ever have!
