Life Is Better Life is messy. There is no debating it. No matter how we try to cover it up and act like life is smooth sailing or say we are fine, life hands us challenges that are to hard to handle on our own.
This messy life could be of our own making, caused by someone else, or simply the hand dealt to us. Regardless of its source, God's ultimate desire is to find healing in a way that allows us to overcome and see His Kingdom come in our lives. He never meant for unforgiveness, bitterness, shame or hopelessness to control our lives. This is why He created us for fellowship.
In This Together God made us in such a way that relationships are vital to our emotional and spiritual health. He NEVER meant for us to go this journey on His earth on our own. We are meant to do life together.
It is in this purpose of meeting others where they are at and God using us to meet that need that we find miracles. Miracle after miracle is created, all of which transform us and them. We need each other.
Think, why else does it mean so much to us when we have family and friends to lean on in tough times? When we have someone there to simply listen, to receive a hug from, to have a hand to hold, to hear an encouraging word spoken just to us, as we go THROUGH the challenges of this life, life appears more doable.
God wants to use you and me to be Jesus' hands and feet to His precious children. Are you willing and ready? Who are people you know that could use the gifts of your presence, your special words, your hand in theirs? Visit someone today.
