My name is Hannah Pusateri! I am currently Personnel at YWAM Honolulu so if there are ever staff or mission builders that come through that’s who I help and work with!
I am 23 years old, from Spokane, Washington, and just got married in July! I love donuts, a good Disney movie, and being around people I love. Well that’s just a little bit about me and now let’s get down to the nitty gritty…
What has God been challenging me with?
To be honest… friendships.
I’ve been reading this book called Uninvited by Lysa Terkeurst ( by the way … every girl out there you HAVE to read this book ).
And something stood out to me in a chapter about friendships… DO YOU FIGHT FOR HER?
That really struck me. When I get in an argument in any of my relationships do I want the best for them? Do I fight for them? Do I fight for that friendship? Or am I blinded by Pride?
When have I argue with God and don’t understand why it’s not going for me and I get mad & student. But when has He not been for me? I promise you that you can’t name one time God isn’t FOR YOU.
So something that I have realized is I have been selfish in my friendships. I don’t fight for her and push my pride aside to be that friend that they need me to be.
So I encourage you… who is that friend you need to reach out to? What friend that YOU need to put your pride aside and just love them? No matter your differences, your argument, your frustration … you need to fight for her! YOU need to love her right where she is at.
1 Timothy 4:12 “Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity.”
One of my favorite verses… hold onto it and simply fight for her, for others, your friendships, loved ones, your neighbor and simply the stranger you come across today!
Thank you for letting me share what’s on my heart and I hope it encourages you!
