Tonight, I was overwhelmed by the realization of how precious some of my friendships are to me.
Perhaps, for the first time I am able to be appreciative of what Christ has done this year. How He had changed and shaped friendships, which at first I never thought would have gone anywhere. Or if there were going somewhere, He deepen them in ways I could only imagine.
Yes, I may not have a “best friend” exactly to call my own and hang out constantly with. But what does that mean anyway? I want to be one with people, not just one person. I want to be the body of Christ with each friendship I make. Some may turn to be deeper than others. I want to know, however, that my trust can be found in all. Not just one.
I am just so thankful tonight. For the love, support, and understanding. Heaven knows, who I truly am, and many lovely ladies seem to have accepted me just as I am. Perhaps, that is the most overwhelming part of it all. But Jesus is soooo good. And I thank Him for people. For friendships. For girls I can talk and lean on.
Maybe the most beautiful part in a friendship is: when we open our hearts and expose ourselves to each other. Hold nothing back and move forward. Oh to be bold like a lion.
