The other day I either read something, or heard something that really made me open my eyes and ears.
I am a very, very emotional woman, and I take everything you say to me at “face value.” This means, if you say something to me I will take it just like you said it. This can be a bad thing sometimes. You may not have meant to come off that way or you may not have wanted to say it that way.
I realized the other day that I have been expecting too much of friendships. What I mean by this is that if I continue to do this, INSTEAD of allowing Jesus to fill that void, I will continue to be let down and hurt.
I need to remember that people are human; we all have lives, families, jobs, faults, etc., etc. I don’t need to worry about, “Why isn’t that person talking to me,” or, “Is that person ignoring me?”
I need to KEEP my focus on Jesus and remember that I was put here on this earth to share the good news of Christ to others. I love the friends I have, but Christ comes first, then my husband, then family and friends.
I hope that you all have a blessed Veteran’s Day.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!
2 Corinthians 5:17
