Jewel Of Inspiration: Three's Company

Who do you join hands with in life - love - leisure?
What happens when life brings change or everything goes wrong?
What happens when frustration friends us, suffering surfaces, crisis comes to our doorstep and tough times become too much on our own?
Where do you go?
Who goes to you?
Yes, sometimes it is easier to do things or go through life on our own. The truth is - we were made for community - we need God and we need each other.
Be Inspired To -
Seek the love, strength and guidance of God.
Seek the joy, comfort and wisdom of a friend.
Seek to help and love others.
This is what you will see -
See your own life strengthened, guided, comforted, and filled with wisdom, joy and peace.
And then you will even greater overflow it to others through their life journeys.
When we walk alone it is difficult and heavy.
When we humbly join ourselves with 2 or 3 others - powerful things happen! When we offer our time, a listening ear, and prayer - or trustfully share our own heart - the heaviness of each of our burdens will be reduced. We don't always see it right away - but eventually those burdens, those hard times, those difficult days become purposeful in our lives. Every difficult day, hard time, and unwelcomed experience can shape our character, strengthen our faith, grow us in wisdom, bring glory to God and eventually providing an avenue of ministry to someone walking a similar path.
Together is powerful!
"Together, we can celebrate our successes.
Together, we can support each other in our failures.
Together, we can proclaim His goodness over and above all things.
Because life isn’t about having it all together — it’s about knowing together we have it all." ~ InCourage -
Let's find others to join hand in hand with, on our left and right, and become a triple threat to the things that come against us and a triple powerful praise of gratitude and celebration!
The power of three's company is so much stronger, safer, warmer and wiser than choosing to do life alone.
By yourself you're unprotected.
With a friend you can face the worst.
Can you round up a third? A three-stranded rope isn't easily snapped. ~ Ecclesiastes 4:12 The Message Bible
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. - Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
May we get braver and quicker in being someone for others to join with and in seeking someone for us to join hand in hand with in life, love, leisure and lifting up hands of prayer and praise.
Imagine how helpful and healing that company would be!
I pray we all find that kind of community and company and be that to others too!
Be Inspired,
