Insomuch as any one pushes you nearer to God, he or she is your friend.
This is My commandment, that you love one other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one's life for his friends. John 15:12-13 NKJV
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son. John 3:16 NKJV
We have friends that come into our lives for just a season.
They walk in, then walk out....for the short time they were there, they may have made a profound impact on our lives. We don't understand where they went, or why they went. God knows. They are willing vessels, used for His Glory....meant to draw us into a relationship with Christ Jesus.
It takes a lot of obedience, courage, faith and love to build these kind of relationships for Christ.
*Having someone who understands is a great blessing for ourselves.
Being someone who understands is a great blessing to others. JANETTE OKE.
Then there are the people that "really" know us.....*We should all have one person who knows how to bless us despite the evidence. PHYLLIS THEROUX.
These are the friends that you will have for the rest of your life. You're welded together by love, trust, respect or loss~or simple embarrassment.
Your hearts sing in harmony.......Don't walk in front of me~I may not follow.
Don't walk behind me~I may not lead.
Walk beside me~And just be my friend.
Reliable friends who do what they say are like cool drinks in sweltering heat~~~refreshing!
PROVERBS 25:13 THE MESSAGE.
A friend hears the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails.
*A friend understands what you are trying to say...even when your thoughts aren't fitting into words.
ANN D. PARRISH.
*Rich is the woman who has a praying friend. JANICE HUGHES.
For the women that have blessed me with their friendships....I want to thank you for your care, compassion, honesty, and love.
I thank God for you.
