You’ve heard the old song, “Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver, and the other gold.” You know a friend is truly gold they offer to drive an hour from their home to visit for one and a half hours, before driving that distance again, to go home.
Over the weekend, I had the privilege of connecting with an old friend from college. We haven’t seen each other in 41 years, but that didn’t matter. It was like no time had passed at all.
If I thought high school was good, Oral Roberts University, (yes, I went there all four years) was a huge blessing in my life. The blessing of being with other Christian students and learning more of God was incredible. I experienced much more acceptance and healing while at ORU, with virtually no rejection. Finding the right learning community is important, especially for those with rejection issues. Click to Tweet #amwriting #rejection #APD
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:7. let your light shine through your cracked pot. Ring the bells that still can ring, Forget your perfect offering, there is a crack in everything, That's how the light gets in.
