what are friends for?




What Are Friends For?

We all have times where we need someone to come along and encourage us:

 someone who can speak faith into our situation and lift our head up ... someone who can remind us of the promises of God and say, “You can do it!” ... someone who can gently push and prod us when we would rather stay in a protective shell ... someone who loves us enough to straighten out our thinking when we aren’t seeing things right—and we should stand ready to do the same for them.


The Scripture says that our words hold the power of life or death. In my life I have been both catapulted into destiny by words of faith and encouragement and emotionally paralyzed by words of defeatism and discouragement..


The best plan of attack for these lies is to say, “You know what? That’s right. I can’t do it. In the flesh I would just mess things up, BUT I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength!” Then step out in faith and obey the prompting of the Holy Spirit!

  3. How very thankful I am to have wonderful Christian friends who encourage me, and lift me up, and even rebuke me "in love" when I am in need. May the Lord help me to be His Love! This so reminds me of Kathy Tricolli's song, "Let me be His Love" which I will post on my blog. And thank you, Soraya, for being an uplifting and encouraging blogging friend.
