Longing to be Closer

There are a couple of people in my life that are very dear and special to me.  However, I long to have a closer relationship with them.

I’ve turned this over to the Lord, but it doesn’t make the desire any greater.

So what are some ways in which we can draw closer to others?

Friends are there to teach us lessons

  • Find things we have in common to discuss
  • Share more of our lives and days
  • Put down the electronic devices
  • Make time for one another
  • Set healthy boundaries
  • Pray

1 Corinthians 13:4-7 reminds us that “Love is patient, love is kind, It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

Sadly, some of these are easier said than done.

We also have to realize that more than one person has to be willing to make the effort.

How do you draw closer to others?
