Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
I know that I was not designed to live life alone. Your plan has always been for me to live in community with You. Thank You for desiring to be a part of my life…the strongest part! Help me to seek out relationships where You are the center. Help me to be open to the help and guidance of people who seek You first, too – people who want the best for my life, and trust that the very best is the plan You have for me. Would You also help me to be that kind of friend? Help me to seek You on behalf of the people I love and to offer encouragement and grace in abundance. It is my desire that You would be at the center of each and every relationship I have so that we can grow and flourish in all that you have planned. Amen
