For Friends

1 Thessalonians 1:2 "We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers"

PrayerNotes

I am grateful for dear friends whom I have never met face to face but only here on the internet. They have a special place in my heart. I pray for them often and I know they pray for me as well. I am grateful for the friends I have met but who live far away, I miss them so but am abundantly thankful that we are able to keep in touch by phone and email and letters or cards.

I am grateful for all the dear sisters in Christ that the lord has given me for friends, whether they are far away or very near, if we talk once a month or once a week. I am glad that God has given us each other that we might bear one another's burdens. Isn't it amazing that God cares so much about us that he blesses our lives with so many amazing people?

Praying that you are blessed today!

Dear Cherry,
I am humbled that my art magnet is showcased, today. And, yes, what a blessing girlfriends can be! What would we do without them? A true sister-in-Christ in priceless, sharing and bearing your burdens.... I'm so glad the Lord has given us to one another and I pray that more of us recognize what a gift we can be to one another when we see ourselves through the eyes of the Lord. Many blessings, thanks and love to all of you!

I really believe that one of the most tangible ways God shows His love for us is through our godly friendships.

Thank for reminding us about this whole new arena where we have virtual friends. Our friends used to be only the neighbors, people from church, our work mates, school chums, etc. But now we have friends we've never met in person and who could live as far away from us as the opposite side of the planet !!! And still they touch our heart and soul. How good God is to us.................

Thank you all so much for your kind words, I had a difficult morning but my dear friends were what helped me through, I know it wasn't much of a devotional. My next one will be better.

I've made so many friends here on Etsy, who I feel I know almost as well as my "in person" friends.
All it takes is a love of the Lord, to give us a common thread to share. Just goes to show this big huge world is a lot smaller than we think.
