Wednesday Matters
Everyday Best Friends

“We’re best friends now!” that’s my “go-to” line when I’ve connected with someone in a significant way. I take a “selfie” with the person too and get their information to stay connected.  Gigi and I are best friends now too. I met her at a retreat and like all people she had to story to tell.

Gigi shared her wild child past living in Brazil and as I listened to her I found what is true with so many others, we make harmful choices when we live in darkness and hopelessness.  I know that there’s hope no matter who we are and what we’ve been through and that’s what pulled Gigi out of her pit.  There was hope, there was Jesus who knew and knows and loves her as she is. Our past does not have to define our future. Our best friends are those who know that the hope is there and His name is Jesus…everyday.
