It wasnt until recently I realized the true importance of friendships. I had, for the last year, been leary of stepping outside of my comfort zone and inviting new people in my life. I am working on that now, and working on me. I have realized that the people I surround myself with imulate the person I am, and that has convicted me a great deal. Everytime I would find myself making strides, something would happen that would make me crawl back into my preverbial hole. I hate that cycle and am ready to change it. I know that it drives those true friends I have crazy, and I adore them for sticking with me thru my mania!
Trust is not only an important factor in friendships, but in life. So much of our daily living is grounded by trust. We trust that our car will start when we get in it, we trust that our water will work when we turn it on… yet it is so very hard that to trust that Christ will still be there when you mess up. Its hard to trust that His love is unconditional, and is always available.
That is my goal as a mom, a wife and a friend. To trust that despite my shortcomings, which happen very often, I will trust in the love that has been bestowed upon me by those in my tangible life and by my heavenly father.
The past is the past, and it will continue to repeat itself until I decide to move past it. Im ready to move!
