This picture is gold. It's my sister and I cruising in the back seat of my cousins convertible Mini Cooper roaming through the coast line of Portugal. I'm reminiscing on this drive. I felt so full of joy. So full of laughter. So full of hope. So excited for every turn. Just no worries, pure bliss. .
Then I come to my present moment. I feel worn. I feel uninvited, unwanted and invisible. Can I be real? For just a quick second. Friendships are hard. They take work and time to grow and maintain. I'm in a season of creating a lot of NEW beautiful friendships but they take time. I so desperately want these deep close friendship and I'm learning be patient. Not everyone has the right to be close to you. God wants me to guard my heart. He wants me to be quick to listen. I'm totally realizing how important it is to know that HE is all I need because people come and go. Experiences come and go. Travel comes and goes. But he, he has always been there. Steadfast and waiting with arms wide open to listen, to help me shake these doubts and lies. I pray this encourages you and speaks to you. Remember again, that Instagram is just a highlight real. Most people deal with deep hurt, take time to talk one on one to eachother. .
