Count Your Blessings Month
“A friend loves at all times,
and a brother is born for adversity.”
God brings people into our lives to allow His goodness to show through them. In our hurried lifestyles, we sometimes don’t see this action of God. It’s when things seem to pile up against us that those friendships become our lifelines back to ‘normalcy.’ They remind us of God’s love for us and that we are His children. They love us in spite of what we are going through and ‘stand in the gap’ for us, by interceding for us in prayer, by listening to us as we voice our fears or complaints.
Sometimes, people relocate to another town or state. Those relationships become different but they can still be friendships.
Some ways I have been blessed by friends:
*A phone call,
*a card or a sweet note in the mail an email or a Facebook message,
*a hug at church,
*someone stopping in the pharmacy or grocery store to talk.
*a friend helps me when I have a need.
Have you been blessed by a friend lately?
