Iron Sharpens Iron

Proverbs 27:17 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

Tonight we had our annual Low Country Shrimp Boil at Turning Point Church where we had a big group of men show up. As I sat there and looked around I was immediately humbled by the amazing group of men God has surrounded me with. I could not imagine not having this group of men in my life. We do life together, we crack jokes at each other, we pray for each other and we are there for each other.

Way too many times in my past I have tried to separate myself from people and not allow people to actually know the real me. I think if they really knew what I have done and been through would they still be my friend. So for a long time I was afraid to open up to other men. But after going to this church and God delivering me from the wrong mind sets I am completely filled with joy with the people God has placed around me.
