Bridging The Gap

May 24, 2016

Hey Lovies! 

 Have you ever watched someone you know take a turn for the worst? You’ve watched them go from bubbly and charismatic to someone who barely smiles or can even look at themselves in the mirror. You want to offer words of encouragement, but you know that it will fall on deaf ears because the person is convinced that you’re just being their friend and don’t really mean it. 

 In these moments, you may feel helpless or think there is nothing you can do to turn the situation around or that the situation is a never-ending puzzle. You may be wrong. In fact, you may actually be the missing piece to the puzzle that brings the masterpiece together. 

 Here are three steps that you should take to fulfill your role as the missing puzzle piece: 

 1. Pray. If you need to grab another close mutual girlfriend (someone you can truly trust and won’t judge the situation) to pray with you, do it! If you haven’t noticed from my previous post, there is definitely power in prayer! 

2. Believe. No matter how annoying, long, redundant, and crazy it may seem for you to keep believing positive thoughts about this person, keep telling yourself that somehow, something amazing is going to happen. Keep believing! The last thing your friend needs is for you to give up.  

3. Keep Living. This can sometimes be the hardest task of all! When someone tells you to trust that God is in control of a situation and not stress about it, your first instinct is to say “that’s easier said than done.” However, when you truly apply this tip to your life you will find yourself at peace which will in turn will bring peace to your friend. 

 You may not know it, but you are the answer to someone’s prayers. You are the missing piece that can change a situation. But the power inside you won’t be released until you use it to bridge the gap and create the masterpiece. 🙂
