I Have The Best Friends‼️
I HAVE THE BEST FRIENDS‼️
- Daily Word - June.05.2019➖Pastor Sheliah
It’s happened again just this week. And so, I’m repeating an article about good friends and how much you mean to me.
Perhaps it was because I was gone 3-weeks and when I walked into our gathering on Sunday morning, I found myself grinning from ear-to-ear just to see some friends I’ve missed so much.
And then when we got together for Birthday Babes on Monday ... it happened again! My heart was just so full of joy to have my friends around, and to laugh and fellowship with many precious ladies who make me so happy!
I Am So Blessed‼️
I often laugh or make a joke about it – and it may sound as if I’m teasing or jesting – but what I say is True! ~
I do have the ❤BEST FRIENDS ❤that anyone could ever have!
The apostle Paul wrote about such friends in Philippians 2:1-2 ~❣️“… if being in a community of the Spirit means anything to you, if you have a heart, if you care— then do me a favor: Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends.
❣️ “Don’t push your way to the front; don’t sweet-talk your way to the top. Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.”
Truly, I am so blessed to have friends that “care” – and “share” – and “give” – and make such an impact on my life – that I am constantly being “challenged” and being “changed” by the Power of God’s Love working in them and through them toward me!
❤You know WHO You ARE – and I’m just sending out my LOVE to you today … actually His Love that works in and through you to make “my” world a Happy and Exciting place!
Thank You! Thank You! Thank You for Being My Friend!
And Paul continues in Philippians 2 (v.13-15) – by saying: ❣️“Redouble your efforts. Be energetic in your life of salvation, reverent and sensitive before God.
“That energy is God’s energy, an energy deep within you, God himself willing and working at what will give him the most pleasure.
❣️“Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night!”
I love this song from The Golden Girls – “Thank You for Being My Friend”
