WHAT A FRIEND - Leaning On The Rock When All Else Fails | Guest Post By Rebecca

by - February 28, 2018




Today is my very last collaboration in  my Month of Collabs.  It has truly been wonderful getting to know all these amazing bloggers better.  Thanks so much to each and every one of you who worked with me.  

For my last one, Rebecca wrote a guest post for me.  Her writing is so rich and beautiful.  Every single time I read her blog I end up smiling.  I hope you enjoy the guest post!
Let's imagine you've met this girl. She is beautiful, smart, and, most obviously, popular. You've met her in the hallway a few times - and get this - she's talked to you!
You're absolutely thrilled when she asks you to a party. You can't wait! It's been forever since someone has actually invited you somewhere, and it's HER! The talk of the town, the girl who's always at the center of attention, the trend-setter and leader of "the pack".

You buy a new outfit for the occasion and take time thinking of the perfect gift. You want to look your best, so you spend loads of time doing your hair and makeup. Your mom offers to drop you off, but you opt to take the bus. Showing up to the party in your moms car would be embarrassing!
Finally, after a long bus ride and multiple transfers, you arrive at the party. You open the door, and here's what you find.

The girl is (as usual) in the center of the group. Everyone is crowded around her. The group of girls are all whispering to each other. At first, you think nothing of it. She's always the center of attention. Wanting to join in on the conversation, you start walking towards to group.

And then you stop.

You hear what she's saying. It's about you. She's running you down, telling straight out lies about you, your grades, your home, and even your family. Every word that is coming out of her mouth is false.
You bite your lip and hold back tears. This girl, who you trusted, who you thought you knew so well and was your friend, betrayed you.


She didn't actually have a true relationship with you. She brushed you off, just like she has to dozens of other people.

You're hurt. How could this happen? If this has ever happened to you, know that you're not alone. This has happened countless times to so many people.

Girls, the message is simple. Friends are temporary. They come and go. There will never, ever be a friend who will be "the perfect" one. Your only true friend is in Jesus Christ. Earthly things will pass away, but HE is forever. HE is the rock. HE is there for you in the good times and the bad. HE will never leave you or forsake you.
Why? Because HIS love never fails.
Thank you SO much for your amazing post!  If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Rebecca or reading her blog I highly suggest you do so.  She is one of my favorite bloggers and is always so sweet.  

Have you read Rebecca's blog?  Would you like to read more guest posts?  Can you believe this is my very last collaboration for the month?

  1. Wow, this was beautifully written! I could tell you put heart into it. Thanks for the wonderful reminder. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in what other people think, we forget to remember our Heavenly Father, who rejoices over us with singing. Now that's a beautiful picture!

    Thanks again!
