Let’s have a real conversation…

When was the last time you took your guard down and reached out to someone and talked truthfully about what is going on in your lives. Neighbors and friends are important. God’s word says we are to love our neighbors as ourselves.

I talked to someone today that I have not had a conversation with in over twenty years. Our words were honest, caring and genuine. He reminded me that friends are good but old friends are great!

So, today reach back or reach forward to a friend or a neighbor and you will hopefully find that today is a day you will remember. If your words are true and caring you will have added value to your life.

Flowery words about how great things are when really it might be just the opposite, are a waste of time. Again, have a real conversation. They are the best!

Influencer

Influencer is the new word used to describe those who are bringing along those who agree with what they are doing or what they have to say. It might be how you dress or what you say that causes others to follow you.

As I watched a you tuber’s journey to become one of great influence among young women I thought about Jesus, The Great Influencer. He’s had innumerable numbers of followers and He has remained relevant for thousands of years.

Why? How about he holds the answers to all of life’s questions in his word, which He lived out loud every day.

We are all continually searching for the best life hacks! We want things to be easier and still turn out to be our very best. We want to be the best Mom, Sister or Wife we can possibly be.

I just had a morning where I was searching different web sites for the answer to a question that seemed life altering for me. After writing down all kinds of great ideas I opened my Bible study and turned to today’s read only to be reminded that I am not bound to the system of this world. My heavenly Father has a plan for me and I need to pursue that.

The next time you find yourself searching the web for some answers to your life questions (like Me) take some time to study Jesus and read how He said we should handle things. Let’s not turn to the Bible as our last resort. Let’s keep it first on our go to list.
