As we usher in this new week, I pray that God gives us seven more days of life, challenges, and growth.
I pray that we take time to talk with our families and friends, hold each other up, and applaud each other. I pray that we pray for our country, the world, and our leaders. I pray that we get along, keep the faith, and wait expectantly to see what God has in store for us this week.
With each passing day, I grow in my understanding, faith, and relation with God. I spend more time in His word and continuously ask for the wisdom and courage to do good and avoid being misled by ignorance and fear.
Every once in a while, a friend will ask you a question that you aren’t sure how to answer. Most people concoct a response in these instances, even though they have no real domain expertise or experience on the matter.
Do you ever feel like you’re getting hit from every side?
Are your finances in disarray, is your health worsening, and is your business in crisis?
Maybe your spouse has abandoned your shared dreams and traded them in for a nightmare that is far more superficial, selfish, and materialistic? Perhaps you’re overwhelmed, and you’re wondering why you can’t catch a break.
You thought this was it—your big break. You just made an offer to buy your first home, you’re about to sign a book deal, or you received a fantastic new job offer with the most influential company in your industry.
Human beings have a greater need for friendship than, say, animals. Unlike lions and tigers and bears (oh my!), God created us to be social beings. It’s in our nature to gather, communicate, support, and fellowship with each other.
