God. The infalliable friend bible study
Why do you feel incomplete and disappointed when focused on human relationships? It's a touchy subject.
"What a man desires is unfailing love." -Proverbs 19:22a
"It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man." -Psalm 118:8
Think About it...
-Have you ever been disappointed by a friend you thought you could rely on?
-Do your friends sometimes feel distant?
-Is GOD ever distant?
-All in all, who created the universe and knows the answer to EVERY question?
-Who loved you enough to die for you?
Meditate On it...
I love my friends and there's no denying it. But in these flighty teenage years where, you have to admit, we kind of value ourselves over alot of others (as much as we try not to) hormonal fights tend to break out and I know I always end up feeling heartbroken and betrayed for no apparent reason.
It's important to always see God and to rely on him for support rather than people. I haven't mastered this yet. It's easier to rely on people you can hear and listen to. It's all in looking for the little reminders of God's presence.
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."
I often find myself looking into the sunset these warm spring evenings and the sight is beautiful. But sometimes you need to look away, the brightness becomes painful. I looked to the left of the sun, turning my head to my shoulder, but I still saw the mass of brightness on the backs of my eyelids. The same thing happened if I looked to the right. When I closed my eyes the picture still remained.
Once you've seen something as light as the sunlight, it's hard to forget. We use artificial light all the time when we think the sunlight is gone. But nothing compares to the sunlight.
NOTHING compares to the love of God.
Closing Prayer: Daddy, you are beautiful and strong. Your brightness and grace is enough to blind us but you touch our lives gently and guide us along our paths. Father, thank you for the people in our lives, bad and good. May they mold us and influence us to be what you want us to be. But father may you always remain our point of focus, for you are the only thing infallible (flawless) to exist. Amen.
