HI, This is Kathy Weckwerth from Best Life Ministries. Here are some thoughts for living your best life today:

Have you ever been out some place with a really big crowd of people and yet you still felt very alone?  Maybe you just lost your husband, or you’re new to the area.  People are smiling at you and saying hello, but you still feel like the only person in the room without a friend.

I want to encourage you today that if you want friends, you’re going to have to reach out to make friends.  If you already have your fill of friends, then I encourage you today to think about someone in your life…someone who is at your job..someone who lives on your street, or someone who doesn’t have nay friends….and pick up the phone and make a call to them.  Just say hello.  Bake a cake.  Put a note in the mail.  Invite them over for a barbeque.

Everyday there are difficult things happening in all of our lives.  We need help, we need friends, and we need each other.  If we could just take the time to look outward at the people around us, I bet we can find someone really close to us who feels all alone in a big crowd.

And if you’re the one feeling all alone, start reaching out to people.  Ask them to take their lunch break with you, or grab a cup of coffee together.

Rom. 12:9 says, “Love from the center of who you are.”

Take the time this week to encourage someone and let them know that they’re not alone.  When you do, you’re reaching out, and it can make someone feel better about life.  And when we care about people….it just makes life better.

It’s never too late to make changes. Start today. Start living your best life.
