The last few weeks have been rough. More has been added to my long to-do list. There was an event that I saw coming up. It looked fun and encouraging, I knew I could use a little of that.
But it was a rough week and I didn’t feel like taking care of myself I just wanted to lay in my bed. I dismissed the idea of going to this event.
But, then a friend asked if I would like help the team with the event.
I said “yes”
That was God taking care of me when I wasn’t going to do it. He knows how to get me where I need to be. He gave me a job to do and I am always happy to help a friend.
I needed to hear from one a little further down the road than me, I needed the encouragement of the night, I needed a little fun with friends, I needed to breathe.
I am thankful for my God Shephard who leads me and walks with me. And I am thankful for the friends God has blessed me with who walk with me.
Thank you, Father, for taking care of me when I am too tired to do it. Thank you that when your word is opened you speak. When we share our stories we encourage one another. Thank you for the gift of friends and laughter. I pray that you would use my story to encourage another. Keep me close to you I pray.
