How Are You Doing Today?

I get asked this question more times in a day than any other. It is the easiest greeting when passing someone in the hall, "Good morning, how are you?" The cliche goes that most people don't actually want you to answer in any way other than fine. They either don't want to hear how someone is doing great or they don't want someone to bring them down who isn't doing so well.

The fact of the matter is we all have days that aren't so good. The days where it feels like you have no friends. The days when it feels like nobody at work likes or respects you. The days when it feels like anything you say or do is wrong. The days when you feel isolated and all alone. The enemy tries to get us to think that we are all alone, but we never truly are. There are people beside you in life that will be there for you. There are people in your life that you need to be there for them. Sometimes you give and sometimes you receive.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 says, "...encourage one another and build each other up..." One of the best ways to make yourself feel better is to help someone else feel better. We can do that by being the person that actually wants to know how someone is doing. Sometimes all a person needs is a caring soul to listen to how they are having a bad day, or how things could be better.

No matter what, know that you are never alone. Even if you feel like there isn't a person in the world that you can talk to, God is always available to listen to your prayers. But if you need someone, contact me, I would love to know how you are doing today.
