I still want to blog on a regular basis to keep you updated about what is going on in my life and to share what God is teaching me. I want to share with you whatever the LORD leads me to share and it is my prayer that 1) I only write what the Lord has me to & that it glorifies Him and 2) that it encourages/ challenges you in your walk with Christ (and if you aren't walking with Christ...please ask me and I will share with you how you can begin to walk with Christ today!)
I wanted to leave you with a couple of things that have encouraged/challenged me over the last several days in my quiet times. I am beyond grateful for the friends that the Lord has given me. When I have needed encouragement, prayer, or somebody would simply be there to listen over the last several weeks, the LORD has given me an incredible Godly group of friends who have done that for me and beyond. The thing that I have been challenged with is: Am I doing those things for friends whom the Lord has given me? The Bible, especially in Proverbs, talks a lot about what Biblical friendship looks like and I pray that I am being a Biblical friend like my friends have been to me. The final bit of encouragement are verses from His word that the Lord has used in my life the last several days:
- Jeremiah 29:11 "For I know the plans I have for you."
- Psalm 46:10 "Be still and know that I am God."
- Isaiah 55:9 "For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts."
- Romans 8:28 "And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them."
