Good Morning! (or is it afternoon already??) eek. Hope everyone had a great weekend. I am still in my jammies so that means I am catching up, it was busy! I enjoyed Mothers Day so much, (even if my husband forgot it was mothers day lol) being with everyone and the dinner was so good!! Even if I had to eat my ice cream with a fork. LOL I loved it. The church catered lunch for all of us from a BBQ place nearby. And they did this new thing honoring mothers in our assembly and that totally made me cry. Special situations, etc. I hope we do it every year..
I havent got much to say, wanted to post these few pictures. I thought the Sunday ones were hilarious. Can we for the Love of Mothers Day not get a decent family pic? lol (check out flickr) Have a good day!
Prayer Meeting tonight at the church 7pm come if you can-
Blackaby Devo today…
Iron Sharpens Iron
As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. (Proverbs 27:17)
The Christian life is a pilgrimage. At times the road is difficult, and we get lonely. Sometimes we may become discouraged and consider abandoning the journey. It is at such times that God will place a friend alongside us. One of God’s most precious gifts to us is friends who encourage us and lovingly challenge us to “keep going.”
According to Scripture, a friend is one who challenges you to become all that God intends. Jonathan could have succeeded his father to become the next king of Israel. But he loved his friend David, and he encouraged him to follow God’s will, even though it meant Jonathan would forfeit his own claim to the throne (1 Sam. 19:1–7).
The mark of biblical friends is that their friendship draws you closer to Christ. They “sharpen” you and motivate you to do what is right. True friends tell you the truth and even risk hurting your feelings because they love you and have your best interests at heart (Prov. 27:6).
Be careful in your choice of friends! Jesus chose His_closest friends wisely. He did not look for perfect friends, but friends whose hearts were set to follow God. It is equally important to examine the kind of friend you are to others. As a friend, it is your duty to put the needs of others first (Prov. 17:17). Strive to find godly friends who will challenge you to become the person God desires. When you have found them, be receptive to the way God uses them to help you become spiritually mature. Strive also to be the kind of friend that helps others become more like Christ.
**THANK YOU to all my friends. You sharpen me! Thank you for supporting me, loving me, praying for me, and telling me when I have food in my teeth lol** I love you all.
