He’s Closer Than We Know

Too many people see God as a distant voice or someone they hear about in church every Sunday. They think of Him as someone to go to in times of need or pain.

There are so many different verses in the Bible that give us more and more hints as to who God really is. From these, we know He is loving, patient, merciful, forgiving, all-knowing, and so many other things.

One of the main things the Bible describes Him as is our father. Matthew 23:9 says, “…for you have one Father, and he is in heaven.” He cares for us endlessly and is the perfect example of how a father should be.

The Bible also describes Him as our friend:

John 15:13-15 says, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends…”

Although these are the words of Jesus, God is the same. We can draw close to him and become a true friend of God!

So, how can we make God our best friend?

Talk to him.

When you have exciting news, sudden problems, or an urgent need, talk to him.

You don’t get closer to someone by just interacting with them when it’s convenient for you or solely when you feel like it. Every good relationship requires a conscious effort to communicate and make time for each other.

When we stand at the gates of heaven, we want God to know us. Not just recognize us, but really know who we are and every little detail about our lives.

Think of it this way: Consider one of your best friends. Do you talk to them every day? Or only when you need something? Do you make an effort to learn more about their life and spend time with them? Or just use them to be a listening ear?

This is a perfect example of how we should be with God! If we truly think of him as our provider, creator, and father, then we should want to be close to him!

He’s not this big scary far-away voice. He’s here and he wants to be there for you.

Psalm 145:18 says, “The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.”

If we seek him, he will draw near.  People try to make a relationship with God so complicated, but it’s as simple as drawing near and building a relationship with Him!

All it takes as an intentional first step to do so. Wherever you are reading this, take 5 minutes to talk to God. It’s an easy start but it’s the beginning of an even closer walk with God than you could imagine!

Draw near to Him and watch an amazing relationship come from it.

How You Know You Should Break Up With Your Best Friend

Breaking up with a boyfriend is hard, but breaking up with a best friend is even harder. Sometimes, it is just time to let them go. People change and can grow apart, and sometimes that can be a sign that it is time for the relationship to end. It is just a healthy part of life. Although it is tough, there is a time in most people’s lives when they have to say goodbye to their best friend and move on to bigger and better things. Here are a few signs that you and your bff should part ways.

  1. When you are the second choice: When you realize that you only get asked to hang out when their other friends aren’t available, you know you aren’t their priority anymore. True best friends keep in touch and never make you feel like you are a last resort.moving-on-quotes-relationships
  2. When they aren’t happy for your success: When you succeed in life and have big accomplishments, your bff is the first one to congratulate you. If your best friend is more jealous of your success than they are happy for you, then it may be time to cut them loose.
  3. You are the only one making an effort: Friendships are two-sided. If you are the only one making an effort to hang out or make plans or stay in touch, then they may be trying to tell you they’ve moved on.
  4. When you feel like you have to hang out with them: If you feel obligated rather than excited to hang out with them, that’s no bueno. Your bff is the person you are supposed to have fun and enjoy life with, not someone who makes you want to make up excuses not to hang out.

Friendships don’t have to be forever, and ending them can be healthy!

Oh brothers and sisters…can’t live with them, can’t live without them.  They’re like a best friend you get to live with…and can’t get rid of.  If you’ve watched my YouTube videos, then I’m sure I’ve introduced you to Kylie and Chandler.  I can’t imagine my life without them!  When life gets tough and stressful or I have a bad day, they’re always the ones to cheer me up and make me laugh.  As much as we may fight or argue, I know that we’ll always make up and be there for each other.

Life can get busy and time may become scarce, but finding time to spend with your sibling(s) is very important!  Friends come and go, but a sibling is a lifelong friend. Chelsea Crockett- sibling tag Kylie They’ve known you longer than anyone!  If you’re reading this and think that you and your brother(s) or sister(s) aren’t close, then I challenge you to change that!  Go for an ice cream run or bring back old memories by watching a favorite movie or playing an old school board game.  Little acts like this can quickly bring two people closer.

Love your family and enjoy your time with them, because soon enough everyone will be grown up.  Make memories while you’re young with your siblings.  You’ll never regret the times you spent with them.

Love you all!

Your best friend is your sister from another mister. She knows all of your quirks and pet peeves, and she knows how to push all of your buttons at the same time ;). She is the one that helps you get over guys, and is always there with a tub of ice cream and a movie when things are rough. Here are 15 things that only your best friend understands.

 

  1. Why it’s totally acceptable to scream when “your song” comes on the radio.
  2. Your deepest insecurities.
  3. The nicknames you use for people.

We all have that one girlfriend that we just cannot live without. She’s the peanut to your jelly and the milk to your Oreo. She just “gets” you, plain and simple. Whether you are a workin’ woman or nose deep in geometry homework, you should always make time for your BFF. How can you show her you love her? By taking her on a date, of course! Dates aren’t just for you and your boy toy, they are for your bestie, too! Here are some handy date ideas for you and your BFF:

 

  1. Bestie photo shoot: get a bunch of props together, dress up, do each other’s makeup, and have a blast! You can do your photo shoot anywhere, from your basement to the park!
  2. Make a best friend bucket list: come up with things that you are dying to do with each other. It can be anything from vacationing in Hawaii to skydiving! Be creative!tumblr_mke18jzIAK1s33l0qo1_500
  3. Cook each other dinner: take turns cooking each other your favorite meal. Why YOUR favorite meal? So they can learn more about what YOU love, even if it is just your favorite dish!

 

Next time you feel like spoiling your sister from another mister, take her out on a date! Treat her right, and get her home before curfew. 😉

The Benefits of Having Close Guy Friends

 It’s time to beat down the rumors once and for all; you CAN have a guy best friend without liking them or starting a relationship with them.  I promise it’s possible and it’s a wonderful thing!  There really is something to be said about a girl who has a lot of guy friends.  Now don’t get me wrong, I love my girlfriends, but having close guy friends is completely different.  Actually, having a guy best friend, or a few, is one of the greatest friendships there is!

            Hanging out with a group of guys involves zero drama.  Boys fight and move on.  They usually don’t hold grudges and are just looking for a good time with their buddies.  They also don’t care about all the gossip circulating in your school.  If you’re looking for someone to talk to about your guy problems, they’re the perfect source!  They know how guys think and can tell you exactly what you should do.  It’s also easy to bring out your tom-boy side around them, whether it’s playing video games or a game of one on one basketball.  They’ll always be up for the challenge!  Unlike girls, guys don’t care about what people think about them and they won’t care what others think about you.  It’s easy to show up to their place in sweats and no makeup.  There is never any judging involved when you hang around guys.

Having a good balance between your girl and guy friends is key.  Both groups are completely different and each has their own amazing benefits.  Don’t be afraid to develop a friendship with a guy.  It may turn out to be one of your closet friendships yet!

XOXO,

Chelsea
