Resuscitating Friendships

A Good friendships actually Improves the Health

Do all great friendships have to come to an end? Like living organisms, relationships have a beginning, a middle lifespan, and an end. ” They tend to grow and improve gradually, as people get to know each other and become closer emotionally, or they gradually deteriorate as people drift apart, move on with their lives and form new relationships with others.”  I believe, God wants us to develop some of those friendships throughout a lifetime. And to be smart enough to accept the fact that he is going to move certain friends out of our lives.

There is a growing trend that the average adult relationships in America has more permanent adult enemies, and fewer adult friends. God doesn’t want us to live like this.  Everyone knows the saying, ” keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” God doesn’t want us to put our friendships on the shelf just because of disagreements, or because of some outcome we expected has gone sour. He wants us to master how we can make our relationship greater.

I know God has placed people in my life for various reasons to teach me valuable lessons, some good and some harsh.  I wouldn’t be to quick to zap a person out of my life just because they mistreated me , or didn’t provide something, that I wanted to happen in my life.  It would be foolish for me to do so. It would be really foolish for me to believe that I can truly have an intimate relationship with God if I went through life constantly isolating myself from friendships gone wrong. It would be a great lost to my development if I prematurely terminated the people in my life that God has sent to me.

Even good friends fallout sometimes, people who are dear to your heart don’t come a dime a dozen.  If we can’t learn to live with them and get along with the people God place in our lives, what good are we to humanity? Isn’t that what relationships and friendships are designed for?  God gave Adam a helpmate so that he would not have to be alone. Relationships and friendships are supposed to bring out the best, and/or sometimes even the worst in us.  True friends accepts you for who you are, and  a good friend will always be there for you in time of need.
