God is a good father who hears our prayers and provides precious gifts to his children including authentic friendship. But sometimes past experiences can lie to our hearts telling us falsely we are not worthy to have those relationships. And deep inside, while we never articulated it – we accepted that lie, and so because belief impacts our behavior, WE DID NOT ASK GOD to provide. When this happened to me instead of praying and trusting God’s provision, I worked hard trying to earn that close connection by people pleasing, rescuing, trying to be perfect, or popular and missed out on God’s best. Ahhhh but when we pause and remember the truth about who God our good Father, bold, persistent prayers will bring beautiful, amazing authentic friendships – a provision from your Father who loves us so!
