When you are lonely, come to Me. I am your true and faithful friend. I am always with you. I will never leave you. I will never forsake you. I know you feel pulled in many directions. You long for true friendship with people, yet have yet to find those that you can connect with.
Can you trust Me to bring you together? For as you pursue Me each day, listening to My voice, I will align you and bring you together at just the right time. Be faithful in the little things for I see your heart. You feel like it's such a struggle to balance your personal life with your ministry life, but it is all the same to Me. See all of your life as worship and you will come into peace.
Abide in Me and I will guide you each moment of each day. Yes, I care that much about you to be involved in every aspect of your life. Turn your attention to Me and you will see everything align, even the little things. Seek first My Kingdom and all these things will be added to you.
I do care that you have friendships that are lasting and enduring. I also know that you have faced betrayal many times, but even then, I was with you. Do not be afraid to love and trust again, for it is how your heart will remain soft. When you hide, it becomes hardened.
Trust Me to lead you to friends that hunger for Me, too. They are waiting to be found, but you must place yourself "out there" in order to discover who they are. Just be yourself and refuse to be a chameleon who changes to conform to others expectations. For I am sending those to you that have eyes to see in the spirit and will recognize your true self. You have what they need and they have what you need to grow and expand in this new season. So go ahead and take a chance again and see what I will do. Surely you will find your tribe, for I am bringing you together for such a time as this. You will love again, laugh again, and live again, my child. It's My promise to you.
Psalm 25:16 Expanded Bible (EXB)
Turn to me and ·have mercy on [be gracious to] me, because I am lonely and hurting.
Psalms 55:20 The Passion Translation (TPT)
I was betrayed by my friend, though I lived in peace with him. While he was stretching out his hand of friendship, he was secretly breaking every promise he had ever made to me!
Proverbs 27:9 The Passion Translation (TPT)
Sweet friendships refresh the soul and awaken our hearts with joy, for good friends are like the anointing oil that yields the fragrant incense of God’s presence.
