Being Real

When I started this blog I said I had no real format and I would be blogging about real life and being frugal. Well today is a real life topic that God has been impressing upon my heart for quite a while. Being Real. What does it really mean? I just feel as I christian and a mom I sometimes struggle with acting like everything is perfect and I never have anything going on. That simply is not true. Real life happens!! We need a close circle of a few people that we can truly be real with. We also need to pray for guidance to be that type of friend. We need to have compassion and be people of substance. We need to call people and be there when we since they need encouragement even if they aren't yet willing to share what is going on. Just to say I love you dearly, I am here for you and I praying for you. I am really trying to be this type of friend and praying for more friends I can truly be real with. We all need that girl friend we can call and just talk about real life no judging, no sharing with anyone else, just being real! Today I want to challenge all of us to seek God and be this type of friend and if you need this type of friend don't hesitate asking God for it he cares! I am going to take this time to pray for myself and others.

Dear Jesus,
How I thank you for all my blessing! I am truly blessed beyond measure even when life gets hard help me hold fast to this. Lord I really want to be real with the relationships in my life. Give me disinterment and understanding for my friends. Help me be what you have called me to be. Help me show your love. Help me cleave to you in everything for understanding and wisdom. Lord you know what is going on with me right now and please comfort me and help me hear you. Lord I also pray that you send to me the type of friends I can be real with. All of us women need someone to be real with. Lord while this is on my mind it also relates to my child. Please help her grow into this type of woman. Help me be the mom she needs me to be at every stage. When she is grown help me be the mother that can be real with my adult daughter. Let the moms that are reading know how important this can be for us young adult daughters. Let them know we need our moms for support, Godly example, and friendship. Lord Help me seek you each and every day in all my decisions. I love you dearly! Lauren

Delight yourself always in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your hear. Psalms 37:4
