Happy Monday! I hope everyone had the weekend you wished for! This is a new week and Praise God from whom all Blessings flow. Amen! 🙏🏻
Today, try to find ten minutes you can give yourself to just “be.” Close your eyes and imagine the wilderness that is your life. Is it calm? Is it a raging storm? Perhaps a volcano or avalanche of sorts. As you see yourself are you able to see others that are traveling with you, supporting you or mere companions on the journey? After reading my devotional today, I began to recall some of my dark wilderness experiences and when I look very closely I was never alone. God has always provided in times of need. Some individuals are still prominent in my life while others have drifted away. I have no doubt they are continuing to help others because that’s what they do, it is their gift. I have been extremely blessed with caring and compassionate people in my life. I’m thankful for the time we had together and the memories that were made. Memories that will be forever in my heart. I often reminisce about my friends I grew up with and the shenanigans we got into. My college days are the fondest of all. People who drastically changed my life in ways I never imagined. I have one friend I know I can always lean on, she befriended me at a time in my life when I was clearly clueless of the world around me. We have maintained a friendship that mirrors family through more decades than we want to admit. I don’t think she truly knows just how rare of a friend she really is. I’ve always loved this poem, it speaks volumes about the impact that people have in others lives.
