The Gift of A Friend

5:38 AM

Last week, a couple of close friends dropped by and my heart felt so much refreshed. It had been tough season in the ministry and I don’t often get chance to express how I feel or open my heart so seeing these good friends of mine again after many months was really like a ray of sunshine on a cold, winter morning!  It was like God knew  I needed to see them before I even realized it myself!

It feels so good to think that God loves us so much to give us friends who love us, who are willing to stick with us till the end… friends who amazingly reminds us of worth in the eyes of the Lord without even saying a word and by just simply sitting across the table, chatting and having dinner with you.

I am so blessed to have those kinds of brothers in the Lord.

I stand in wonder that I matter so much to God for Him to  “invent” friends, to give me my brothers whom I dearly love and hold close to my heart—and who loves me just the same, and to send them to come at the right time when I least expect it, but when I really need  them the most.

There are times when we wonder if God will ever come for us or if He will show up on our behalf, but this season of my life…

God sends answers before I even start to wonder or ask.  God knows what we need and He has provided them before we even need them. He is really that awesome! And I’ll be forever grateful…

…for the gift of a friend…of godly and loving friends.

Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:9–12

  1. True. There exist friendships that are beyond compare and I believe these are God-given and this makes you very lucky in life. "Well, it seems to me that the best relationships - the ones that last - are frequently the ones that are rooted in friendship. You know, one day you look at the person and you see something more than you did the night before. Like a switch has been flicked somewhere. And the person who was just a friend is... suddenly the only person you can ever imagine yourself with." - Gillian Anderson on Relationship quotes
