Someone once said, “The human being is designed for many things. Loneliness is not one of them. We are not meant to go through this life alone.”
So many of us try to handle our problems by ourselves. We don’t let others into our lives to try to help us.
As I have said before, we, as woman, were created as relational beings. We want to feel a connection. We want to open up and share our inner thoughts with those close to us.
But in today’s society, being imperfect is a struggle.
We don’t want others to know of our problems. We fear that they will look at us differently and judge us for our mistakes.
But we need community. God created us that way.
We need to have a few people close to share our struggles and accomplishments with.
God’s Word says that “Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12)
This life is brutal. So many of us go through struggles everyday. This world throws lies at us left and right. We need good people to be there for us when we fall and get distracted by the lies.
Find good, godly friends that will uplift you when you are down and encourage you when you need it most. And do the same for them.
Loneliness is not something that the Lord wants for us. Fighting battles alone is not what He planned for us to do.
We must find good people and cultivate friendships that will last.
It’s okay if you make mistakes. It’s okay if you need someone to lean on.
This life was not meant to be done alone. So stop trying to make it happen.
In His amazing love,
I would love to hear from you below! How has having good, godly friends around you benefited you in your walk with the Lord?
