The Importance Of Multiple Relationships

Relationships—the more the merrier.
Have as many as you can make
Why?
The more relationships you have, the happier you’ll be
They will help avoid feeling lonely
That means more folks sharing your interests
Keeping you active and engaged in life activities
And helping to make it purposeful to live

So, forge new relationships beyond your family
Smile to show yourself friendly 1
Make yourself available to be reached
Help someone when they are in need
Why?

Because life changes
The same folk will not always be in your life or around
Relationships have a purpose cycle 2
As life and mutual interests change
The need for a friend will always be there
So, having multiple relationships is a treasure.

Where Is God?

I read a devotional today from Our Daily Bread entitled Where’s God. As I was reading it, I reminisced on how I never had to ask those worlds. Since I met God decades ago , He was always in my life. I mean I not only felt His presence, but He has shown His miraculous ability to solve problems just in the nick of time, again and again. He’s been very merciful and forgiving.

I couldn’t help but just meditate and give Him Thanks and praise for His faithfulness and His attention to me. I also wondered like Psalmist, whom am I that God is mindful of me. Why did God take such good care of me? All I could think of is because I’m His child and He loves me. He loves me so much that I never had to ask Where Is God.

Scripture references:
Psalms 8:4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
