Here's what I know: When you are walking through a crisis, you need a team around you to support you.
You need "Team ________" (and fill in the blank with your name).
When I am walking through a difficult time - I need "Team George" to come together and pray with me, give me godly counsel and help soothe my troubled soul.
Some of my favorite verses are found in Ecclesiastes 4:9-12, "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm along? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."
Notice that last phrase: "A cord of three strands."
Who comprises your "cord of three strands"? Who are the people in your life who are there for you, pulling for you, not afraid to tell you the truth?
Which friends, in your life, are available to comfort you when you are down, show you more about God than you already know, and pull you back when you are headed for trouble?
Who is there to celebrate with you in the good times and cry with you in the bad times?
Who is on your team?
One disclaimer: Be careful as to whom you bring on your support team.
Bring on those who are growing personally and not those who are stagnant in the faith. Don't entrust your heart to those who are negative, always complaining or critical.
They will kill your dreams and turn you away from God's path for you life.
If you are looking for some team members to support you - why not look into a life group today?
Just a thought for a Tuesday.
