‘Go To’ Guys

I don’t know about you, but I have a few “go to” guys and girls in my life. Meaning that with when I have problems and am looking for solutions, or when I have great news, and even horrible news to share, they are the first on my roster. My list is about four people deep.

I call them my “J-Team.” But sometimes, even those these are people in my inner circle, my most trusted friends and allies, I can be let down and disappointed. Perhaps a member of my team is busy with work, or is dealing with a health issue, then it’s my turn to be a friend to them, which I try to do to the best of my abilities. Friendship is, as you know, a two way street.

As anyone knows, however, when you are hurt from one your closest friends, on purpose or not, the sting goes in deeper than that of any other kind of hurt. I had that kind of experience this week. A friend told me to stop behaving in a way that was annoying—but instead of taking it as a way of improvement—I took it as a personal insult and therefore, it crushed my spirits. Even now, I have not recovered and still feel like a melted ice sculpture lying in a puddle on the floor.

I’ve heard often that the only person you can truly trust is God. I never quite understood that before because I generally had at least one or two people I could always count on. But I get it. God will never let us down, and that is a good thing to know, especially when you are going through a rough time. He should be our number one “go to” guy.
