I have a friend who is often sad. She knows Yeshua but sometimes doesn’t feel that He really
loves her. I just try to gently reassure her that she is loved by many others and me and that God
is always there for her.
Sometimes it seems like this isn’t enough and I feel frustrated. All I can do is pray and try to
show her love the best way I know how.
What do you do when you are feeling sad? Do you push people away and hide under the bed
covers? Sometimes when we least feel like being around people, that’s the time we need people
Perhaps like me, you have a friend who is often depressed. Remember to pray, and call or text
often to remind them that you are thinking of them. If appropriate, stop over with a favorite
bowl of chicken soup (Jewish penicillin!) or cookies.
We really do need each other. People who are hugged often tend to live longer – I think there
was a study somewhere that proved this.
The moral of the story is, reach out and hug someone today! We all need each other, we need to
feel God’s love.
They will know we are believers by our love!
