If you are wise enough to realise you need help - you will look for someone who can literally "take your hand", and walk the "grow up" path with you - until you are measurably competent to carry on yourself .. because YOU CAN! And the most exciting time of your life, has just begun - as you thunder ahead, making life 'deliver-up' on YOUR terms. But before that happy end result can be yours, have to FIND that "someone" who will 'take your hand' - I believe this with all my heart -
Too many struggle on by themselves - admirable persistence; but futile alone - get help! - seek assistance! - commune! - embrace fellowship! Just stop trying to do it all by yourself... (",)
A good special-friend can't fix all your problems, but they can promise you won't face them alone. Everyone you meet comes with baggage; find someone who loves you enough to help you unpack... When it comes to relationships, remaining faithful is never an option but a priority. Loyalty is everything.
Patiently rely on the promises of God, not on your emotions. A friendship based on emotions is shallow, if anything. Circumstances cannot change the character of God; hence His grace is still in full force. When we feel abandoned by God yet continue to trust Him, we worship Him in the deepest way.
The end of the road is but a bend in the road - Helen Steiner Rice
Love is not in those cards and gifts. It's when you hold each others' hand while crossing the road and you choose to face the oncoming traffic. Its when your heart regains a beat after searching for him or her in crowd. Its when just one look assures you that he or she won’t leave you. It's when you pray secretly that your beloved should succeed in everything!!!
When we feel we have nothing left to give
And we are sure that the "song has ended"--
When our day seems over and the shadows fall
And the darkness of night has descended,
Where can we go to find the strength
To valiantly keep on trying,
Where can we find the hand that will dry
The tears that the heart is crying--
There's but one place to go and that is to God
And, dropping all pretense and pride,
We can pour out our problem without restraint
And gain strength with Him at our side--
And together we stand at life's crossroads
And view what we think is the end,
But God has a much bigger vision
And he tells us it's only a bend--
For the road goes on and is smoother,
And the "pause in the song" is a "rest,"
And the part that's unsung and unfinished
Is the sweetest and richest and best--
So rest and relax and grow stronger,
Let go and let God share your load,
Your work is not finished or ended,
You've just come to "a bend in the road."
