So any other girlfriends here willing to raise their hand to this question...
Who else feels left out of the cool-girl circles sometimes?
Tell me I'm not alone in this.
Crazy isn't it?
We get thinking about how we feel outside of a certain circle of gals...all the while overlooking the circles that God has put us in.
What if God has us right where He wants us?
What if maybe the circle we think we belong in, would not be beneficial to us at all.
Maybe, just maybe the Lord wants us to be thankful for the people that He's put in our little sphere of the world and quit trying to belong somewhere else.
Proverbs 25:13 says:
Reliable friends who do what they say are like cool drinks in sweltering heat—refreshing!
Instead of worrying about what circle that we DO NOT belong to, let's try being this kind of friend to those in our life.
Be refreshing! Like an ice-cold mocha latte'!
I'm pretty sure that if we took this approach, we would deal less with rejection, loneliness and feelings of self-pity.
And besides that, in my book you are all so super cool and you can be a part of Praise and Coffee's circle any day!
So, carry on and coffee up!
