It’s Just A Snapshot

Young Girls Taking a Picture“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under Heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)


Our lives change constantly. Even things that used to be pretty stable such as where we live, where we work, and where we worship change more frequently than they used to. And just think about all of the other details that can change at the drop of a hat. Styles of shoes, styles of dresses or styles of hair. How about favorite colors, favorite foods or favorite flowers?


But, what about friends?

 Yes, even friends change. What used to be a vibrant friendship may have dwindled for no reason other than the fact that two people grew apart. And that’s okay. Or maybe the friendship is not healthy and the change is good for you. Yes, these changes can be painful. And we may even doubt ourselves with defeating questions such as “What did I do wrong?”, “What is wrong with me?” or “Why doesn’t she want to be my friend?” But, ultimately, it may very well be that the season for that friendship is complete.

 Ladies, the next time we start to feel down about a friendship that we no longer have, let’s try and reflect on the verse for today: Ecclesiastes 3:1. Yes, there is a time for everything. A season for every activity. Times, and seasons, change. So do friends. We can trust in God to help us face these changes and the upsetting thoughts and feelings that come along as a result.

 “Dear Lord, Thank You for the gift of friendship. Thank You for the different seasons in my life and for being there for me during these changing times.”

For His Glory,
