Do other people see me as a faithful friend or a burdensome buddy?
I pray that I will be the kind of person that other people love and appreciate; not a person that others want to avoid.
And I pray that I will be a good friend to others.
“A man that hath friends must show himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother” (Proverbs 18:24).
Help me to improve my friendship skills…and to be an example of your love in all I do.
Thank you, God.
In Jesus’ name I pray and give you praise, amen.
I found this picture on FaceBook and thought that it was really lovely. This reminded me immegiately of Jesus beacuse He is our best freind and He knows everything about us. Our wrongs and rights, but He still loves us so so much. I just want you to remember that so that if there is ever a time when you feel that the world is against you and that there is no one there for you, you will remember this quote by Elbert and you think of God (even though this may not be what Elbert was implying, it’s what it means to me).
I hope you all have a lovely evening and a good night 🙂
When I first saw this photo I had to laugh. It’s funny how some of the most common quotes/sayings always contradict what they might say to you later in life. After a couple of months I read this quote again and it got me thinking. Lots of people find it difficult or don’t talk to God as often as they should. I can add myself to this list. Sometimes I find it difficult to talk to Him, but He’s still patient with me.
How are we supposed to become best friends with God and have a lovely relationship with Him if we refuse or can’t be bothered to talk to Him. I know that this point is different to what the quote says, but it goes along the same lines.
Recently I have been told by lots of people I know that we need to ‘pray without ceasing’. This is becoming very consistent so I thought that this quote was fitting for my situation. I want to encourage you all to pray and doing so is encouraging me to pray more, especially when things get difficult. I am so thankful that God is still there waiting for me to come back to Him and I really don’t want to let Him down.
I hope that this helped 🙂 and I hope you all have a good nights sleep!
