No matter how many friends, mentors, or counselors we have in our life, we need Jesus above everyone else. In Jesus, we have no better friend. He has to be at the center if we ever hope to find healing and growth in the middle of crazy seasons.
Talk to him.
Confide in him.
Cry out to him.
Depend on him.
Find joy in him.
Look to him for peace.
Just be real with Jesus, and trust that he’s there in whatever season you’re in right now. Make him a part of your day, every day.
We all need these four people in our lives, no matter the season: a friend who loves you and loves Jesus, a mentor, a Christian counselor, and most importantly, Jesus.
Do you have these four people in your own life? Is one or more missing? Is there a fifth person you need in your life?
We all go through hard seasons, but with these four people we can walk through each and every season that comes our way, growing stronger in our relationship with Jesus despite the circumstances.
