What is the most important thing in the world, after Christ that is? It is relationships. I have been taught relationships are one of the most important things in life. It was what I have lived by for most of my life. In the past two weeks I have had to say goodbye to two of my best friends. The last friend left on Friday. It was hard saying goodbye I have to say. The pain is always there. At times I think, what is the point of having relationships. How do you see the relationships in your life? Do you know how important they are in your life? God has brought each and every person in your life for a reason. Don’t take them lightly. We need the relationships in our lives. Someone told me once that people leave because God wants to bring someone else to reveal another part of you. I don’t know how true that statement is but what I do know is that relationships are important. God is a relational God and we are created in His image. We need relationships. Being alone is not God’s plan. I have always asked myself why God allows people to leave. The friends I have now are not the friends I had 5 years ago and the friends I had 5 years ago are not the friends I had 10 years ago but through all of that transitioning I am who I am because of the people I have met and interacted with! I acknowledge the impact they have made in my life even though at times it has been hard to understand. This is me just ranting I guess…..I don’t want to take the people that are in my life for granted.God brought them to me for a reason. He cared so much for me that He blessed me with the people that I now call my friends!!!! Let us not take for granted the relationships in our lives. They are precious….
