I made three new friends this year through a church and it makes a huge difference when I talk to them compared to when I talk to other friends who are not Christian.
These Christian friends understand me, support me in spiritual ways and just generally make me feel connected.
It is such a relief to have a conversation with people who genuinely approach life with love. Who don’t engage in hatred. Who easily forgive. Who place God above everything and everyone else.
I am so grateful for their friendships. I feel so peaceful in their company.
This has been such a challenging year for me. And yet it’s also been the year where I’ve experienced love and God’s grace at the very depths of my soul.
Everything about this year reveals to me that it is just as Paul said it: the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
Need a Christian friend to talk to? I’m right here. 🙂
