Journeying With Others
God said, “It’s not good for the Man to be alone;
I’ll make him a helper, a companion.”
GENESIS 2:18 (THE MESSAGE)
It is true that we cannot do this life alone – God never meant for us to do it alone. We need our relationship with God but we also need real relationships with others as we journey through this life together. We need one another in order to mature into who we truly are.

And if you do not – because you do not know if you can trust anyone – then I pray that God will heal your broken heart and give you the courage to open your heart and learn to trust others again. Because remember and know …
Friends come and friends go,
but a true friend sticks by you like family.
