This year I’m intentionally letting go of past hurts.
The failed relationships of my past will not define my current or future relationships.
As I let go, I realize there’s something else I have to be intentional about – the friendships right in front of me.
Sometimes social media keeps us from connecting face-to-face.
Sometimes social media drains us more than fills us up.
If you’re like me, Facebook can leave you believing you’re all alone in the world.
But lately, God’s reminding me that I have great friends; and a few great friends are better than 20 half-hearted ones.
So this year I’m investing – more dinners together, more play dates, a trip in August to meet face-to-face for the first time.
Being intentional means we have to step out of our comfort zones. That’s hard when insecurity screams run.
Being intentional takes work. And the truth is sometimes it’s easy to grow weary of reaching out.
But that’s what we’re called to do.
Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. ( Galations 6:9)
God has a purpose for each person He puts in our life.
When we choose to serve others, when we love, when we reach out; we are His light.
Let’s stop wishing we had 20 close friends and fully invest in the few great ones we have.
What would happen if we were intentional in our friendships? What if we spent less time investing in Facebook and more time face-to-face? How can you be intentional today?
