When we look at our lives and think about the friendships we have made over the years, those that we have been closest to are those with whom we have shared the most. We have shared our experiences, our work, our hospitality, our interests, hobbies and skills, our time, our hopes and dreams, our upsets and disappointments – our journey in life. To enjoy close, lasting friendships we have to be prepared to make ourselves vulnerable, to share ourselves and to care about others. We may have been hurt in the past and have closed all the doors to our hearts as a result. Open those doors wide open. Lean on Him and He will give you the strength to put past hurts behind you and share new friendships.
