Can’t Keep Living with my Head in the Sand

“If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! … Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.” Ecclesiastes 4:10-11 (NIV)
I wrote Sunday(ish) about how it is sometimes hard for me to branch out and go to those who need me to show them Christ. While I try to live in such a way that everyone I come into contact with will see Him through me, I know that I also need to be more intentional with specific people in my life. I also mentioned that my friends generally build me up and make me better–I need to continue use them to help me reach others as well. 
What I have found myself doing is saying things to others that my friends have said to me. My friends have taught me how to be a Kingdom-minded friend! How amazing is that? In turn, I have learned to be a better friend and to be a friend who reminds them to go to Christ when things get tough. I still have a lot to learn, but I am striving to keep my head out of the sand! 
I have been given an amazing support system through my friendships. I am so blessed; I can’t even express my gratitude! Life is much easier to go through with friends who carry you along when times get tough!
