Even if you don’t feel up to having the responsibility of friendships, they are a necessity. Recently I started attending a women’s Bible Study group and we meet every week. They are an amazing group of women and it’s important to me in 2013 to make them a priority. Hebrews 10:25 (NLT) says “And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”
If you haven’t asked a friend out to breakfast, lunch or just to grab coffee, don’t put it off any longer. Pick up your phone and call/text your friend and set that date.
Next week, I will be having breakfast with a friend of mine I haven’t seen in a while. It is time to make all of my friendships a priority in my life and find balance.
Proverbs 27:17 (NLT) “As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.”
And no, we don’t need to be social butterflies and burn ourselves out with too many commitments. Keep in mind; it is important to set healthy boundaries, even with your time. I pray for you to find both healthy friendships and healthy boundaries.
Please post your comments about making healthy friendships, or about problems you have had, or currently going through.
Also, if you would like me to pray for you, please post here to let me know.
Love and Blessings,
