As you age, you begin to realize that all the discouragement you feel in the your imperfect friendships with people is fixed in the perfection of God. Think about it. The failings of others are contrasted in the things He does everything perfectly. Someone doesn’t give you time? God is always there for you, always. Anytime you need to talk, He has a listening ear. When you can’t explain yourself to a human, the Holy Spirit can intercede in the groanings of your soul as you tell God. People hurt you? God has good in store for you, despite how hard you’re fighting and failing daily. When you feel like people only want to use you or abuse you, remember this. God wants what’s best for you and wants to bring you home. That’s why he left a book full of love letters and words to help you stay on the straight and narrow. Relationships will fill you full of questions. God doesn’t desire to keep you in total darkness. He says when we search for Him with our whole heart, we will find Him.
So be seekers. Be learners. Be strong in the Lord. Be lovers of good.
