Funny Friday is here and this has been a week of utter chaos, so many things to put up in prayer. In just the past few days my friends have been put in circumstances and situations that causes them to ask why? Sometimes we try to answer it and sometimes its best just to let them cry and cry with them either way my element of faith does not waiver. Fear is not an option it’s a decision. What if’s, maybe if’s are figments of the imagination that serve to torment your thoughts and distract you from the only one that can give you a peace that surpasses all understanding. In Philippians 4:6-7 the Word of God states, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 7 and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” I stand by my friend as one deals with devastating news, the other about to lose her father and still another has been taken advantage of by the very people who were supposed to take care of her…this all in one week.
But God…In His greatness has given us the friends we need to get us through the pain we survive. I couldn’t thank God more for giving us friends. When the whole world seems to have lost faith in us, it is only our friends who are able to see the goodness in us. When everyone around is finding faults in us it is only our best friend that we find standing by our side. They seem to have the right word at the right time and even when we don’t say a word they seem to understand our feelings. Rightly as someone has said ‘Tell me your friends and I will tell who you are”. Besides being pillars of support, friends go a long way in influencing us in the becoming the person we are. No wonder then that true friendship is one the most treasured values in the world.
