on the power of God's love & friendships

Something that the Lord has pounded into me a lot recently is His love for me and the power of His love. I've known that He loves me so much that He gave His only Son to die for my sins. But the love that I'm talking about goes beyond that. He loves me so much that He cares about the day to day stuff that happens in my life. i wonder how He could love me so much a weakling. then there's the song Cornerstone (click on word Cornerstone to listen to the song) which explains it to me. part of the chorus goes "Christ alone/Cornerstone/weak made strong in the Savior's Love." we sang this song on Sunday at church (and have many times before in the past) and it hit me. I am weak but I am made strong in Jesus' love for me. It is in His power/love that I am able to accomplish, overcome, go through anything. this is the primary way we as humans are able to accomplish.
the other tool the Lord gives us is friendships.God created friendships because He knew we could not do this thing called life on planet Earth alone. From the very beginning in Genesis God saw that it was not good for Adam to do life alone so He created Eve. I am convinced this is why He created friendships so that we are not alone in accomplishing this thing called life on planet Earth. Can I just give a shout out right now & say that I am blessed beyond measure by the friendships God has placed in my life!!
Giving me ways that I can accomplish things in the power of His love has been a blessing because it makes me realize that I am truly blessed by earthly friendships and it helps me know that I can accomplish when it doesn't seem possible.
Thankful for what the Lord is teaching me!!
