February 4, 2011


Have you ever had a close friend or family member walk out of your life when you needed him or her the most? It seems like when we are facing our toughest battles is when people will turn their backs and will walk out of our lives. Some of us are blessed with caring, loving, friends and family members who stay by our sides through thick and thin. However, others of us may not have the advantage of being blessed with such people.  If you are one of the people who have witnessed loved ones walking out of your life during a time of need, always remember that God is there for you! God is only a "hello" away, so start relying on and conversing with Him.

In the past  year, more friends and family members walked out of my family's life than any other time in history. Why? Because my family was facing the biggest struggle we have ever faced since my husband and I met over 20 years ago. Maybe God shows us who our true friends are during our most difficult periods in life. Many times we go through life thinking that those we surround ourselves with truly care about our well-being. However, when faced with a life-threatening illness, a financial crisis, a divorce, or any type of temporary inconvenience, we soon find out who is willing to stand by us, and who is willing to encourage us to keeping fighting each and every day just to get through.

If you find yourself in a situation like I described above, please do not feel like you are alone. You are never alone as long as you remember that God is there to help you through anything life might throw your way. All you have to do is say, "Hello, God," and He will answer. Sometimes we have to get quiet and relax our thoughts in order to hear God say "Hello" back, but if you listen you might be blessed to hear his voice. When people let you down, turn their backs, and walk away from you forever, find someone else to listen to your pain and suffering. God is only a "hello" away, so cry out and give your troubles to Him.
