God doesn’t always reach us in a giant booming voice from above the heavens. In fact, a lot of the time God reaches us when we are feeling most isolated by surrounding us with people who bring us closer to him. Friends can see the blind spots we can’t and with unwavering love and devotion to God, show us how God is working in our lives. But what about when the tables are turned and we are the ones in a situation where we have to reach out to a friend? It can be hard sometimes, we feel as though we are overstepping our boundaries or putting our nose into something we shouldn’t. But let me be the first to say (as a person who has been on the receiving end of help many a time) that if you have the opportunity to reach out to a friend, do it. You have the ability to change someone’s day around and possibly help lead them through their brokenness and into the light.
Hey God! Allow us to be a resource for those in need. Use our strengths in an effort to heal the brokenness in those around us. Continue to support us and give us strength when we are struggling, because through our pain we can learn and grow closer towards you. AMEN!
