You know what they say, you can’t live with ‘em and can’t live without ‘em. Relationships are so great, you love them, you need them and yet they are so tough.
I have been loving the Daily Devotion with Mark Hall from Casting Crowns this week. He has been talking about friendships and even mending broken friendships.
They’re just so important. Maybe you have one of those friends that’s stuck with you no matter what or one that you wish you could say you’re sorry to and start over.
I saw this thing the other day that women in their 40s and 50s are actually much more optimistic about their lives that men. Why? Because they have good friends.
It's not the number of friends they have, but it’s the quality and consistency. Men of that same age are not as likely to have a strong support network.
I’ve had those friends that no matter where I’ve moved to or what happened in my life still keep in touch. We encourage each other and we call each other out when we’re not doing the right thing.
I’ll never forget my friend, Chante, stopping me when I was headed the wrong direction in my life. She was willing to put our friendship on the line for it too. I’ll never forget that call, she said,
“You may never want to talk to me again, but that’s okay with me, I love you too much to let you do this.” Now that’s real. I listened. We are still friends.
Tell me about a beautiful friendship in your life here or on Facebook.
