We have all heard the phrase "good time friend." They are the person who is enjoyable to be around as long as the going is good. They want you to come along for the ride, but their friendship is paper thin.
Then there is the "frenemy," who pretends to be your friend but has no interest or understanding of what a real friend is. You cannot confide or trust in this person of this nature.
I hope to share "1" important fact with you:
Anyone who "pulls" you away from God is NOT your friend, no matter what age you are, 16 or 60.
Draw close to Christ and He will draw close to you
and strengthen you to withstand the "pull"
of the world and people who really
are not your friends.
Ask God to place "faith-filled" women in your life...He will!
He has done this for me time and time again. Over the years we all will be friendly with people from all walks of life and enjoy their company. We laugh with them, work with them and care for them. Not everyone you come in contact with or enjoy company with will know Christ or have a growing relationship with Him. But when a woman of faith needs to grow spiritually, confide, trust and share prayer requests...she needs another like-minded woman who also loves Christ with all her heart.
Together you are sister's in Christ, bonded for eternity and accountable to each other. We pray, encourage, keep each other on track and share trials. This experience is such a blessing, I just cannot put into words what a special friendship this is!
When you awake at 2 A.M and you are heartbroken or fearful, what a comfort it is to fall to your knee's in prayer and then also have that special sister in Christ that you can call and pray with.
There has been countless times that I have prayed with a sister over the phone, texted in times of emergency for prayer, and felt the comfort that they were sincere in their concern for me.
May you also experience this blessing as a woman of faith. As a sister in Christ you are never alone. Seek out those special women. This is the reason "M" Words came to be. Blessings to you! -- Jo
Lord, I pray that every woman reading this will understand that she needs another sister in Christ. This world will try to pull us away from You with trials and fears. May You place that special woman on her path, guide & spiritually strengthen them along this road of life. In the name of Jesus I pray, Amen.
