I was feeling down. This past week has been crazy, hard, and discouraging. Today started off great and ended on a down note. My heart has been hurting and I’ve been wrestling with difficult decisions, painful truths, and a lack of conviction. And then…my beautiful friend Paola wrote the sweetest post about me. It made me stop in my tracks — literally.
I cannot tell you what an encourager this woman of God is. We’ve met once for a few hours, and I left feeling as if I had known her forever. Seriously. I know people say that all the time, but it’s so true. She is one of my closest, dearest, best friends. Her heart is so beautiful — her words bless me, her love for God encourages me, and her joy for Jesus inspires me. She genuinely loves people and shares this love — she proclaims the gospel. This woman is a WORLDCHANGER. I am so thankful for our friendship. She’s beautiful, funny, real, encouraging, smart, silly, a starbucks-lover, crazy-good-writer, and a BOLD woman of God. I love her so much and am continually blessed by her!
God is so good to give us friends.
