Coffee Time: Iron Sharpening Iron-Be Careful Who You Have In Your Life

Hey! I've been on a little unplanned hiatus. How have you all been? I've missed you. 

Since I showered today Since I have had something on my mind lately, I decided to make a video. 

I blogged about this at Deliberate Women this week, so you can read a much more in-depth version of these thoughts if you'd like, but for now, in these 5 minutes dedicated solely to blogging here, I'd like to encourage you  to be very careful who you put in your life and who you have influencing you on a regular basis. 

Proverbs 27:17 says:
"As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another."

Who is the iron in your life? Do the people surrounding you breathe life and encouragement into you or is there tension and back-biting? 

Do your friends and family--the ones you confide in--inspire you  to live your life with purpose and diligence as you pursue a life of faith in God? Or do they promote activities and thoughts that are outside of what God would want?

It's  tough and sometimes we have to have a purge in our lives.

I've had to do it and it isn't all that fun sometimes, but if the end result is that I am stronger and more focused to put my energies where they belong: on serving God whole-heartedly and being who I need to be for my family, then it's totally worth it.

And even if it's difficult, God will give me the strength to step back from those relationships that aren't what they should be and to draw closer to those I should be building relationship with.

Here is the link to the Deliberate Women post. I hope you will head over that way and take a look around. Click the "Meet Our Team" tab and get to know these awesome ladies I get to be in ministry with and who I am so lucky to call friends.

Until next time...
