“Then he returned to his disciples and found them sleeping. “Couldn’t you men keep watch with me for one hour?” he asked Peter.”
Matthew 26:40 NIV
As Jesus was struggling with the most difficult point of His life approaching, His closest friends could not be counted upon for support. Have you been through this same heartbreak? I know a woman who lost two sons, and rather than her longtime friends rallying around to support her, she found they were anything but consoling. When her grief ran much longer and deeper than fit their comfort levels, they took off.
Recently, when my own trials were seemingly peaking, I was blessed to have a friend say to me, “Life gets messy, and I am more than willing to walk through this with you.” Others also rallied with support I never considered pray for. To get to this point, I’d had to painfully let go of others who had been good friends in order to have time to invest in iron-sharpens-iron relationships.
Do your friends push you to be the best version of yourself? Are you growing in your walk with God as a result of the people with whom you spend your time?🚦
