Encouragement and Comfort from God

"Is there any encouragement from belonging to Christ? Any comfort from his love? Any fellowship together in the Spirit? Are your hearts tender and sympathetic?" Phil. 2:1

I think that having friends is one of God's most loving ways of giving us encouragement. Friends can give a listening ear, a word of encouragement, an understanding nod, a compassionate hug, a card or letter at just the right moment, a gentle word of reproof, just being there during a difficult time. Our best friends speak our names in prayer to our Lord Jesus Christ.


Let us be that kind of friends. Speak your friends' names in prayer.




Fabulous Party

  4. Indeed, I count my friends very dear to me! How wonderful to mention their name in prayer, and find little things to do for them to make their day. I am certainly thankful for the greatest FRIEND of all who shows us in turn how to be better friends. Hugs to you today Laura :)

  6. Laura, there is nothing sweeter than a good friend. I'm constantly convicted that I need to be a better one! I definitely need to pray more consistently. I'm visiting today from Mom's the Word. Blessings!

Thank you for praying for me! Thank you for encouraging me so much through this cancer treatment. I have the best blog friends in the world! Yes! You!

I read all your comments and respond as I can right now.
Please make sure I have your email if you want me to respond or pray for you. For some reason Blogger isn't notifying me of comments right now, so I may be a bit slower.

God bless you all! This life only works with Jesus. The next life is a continuation of this one—make sure you spend it with Jesus. Jesus is the only way to God the Father!
