True Friendship

“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. For if one falls down, his companion can lift him up; but pity the one who falls without another to help him up!” Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, Berean Study Bible

While spending time at a friend’s house, who I’ve known since college, she blew up an air mattress, and I went to sleep. In the middle of the night, I found some of the air had gone out of the mattress, and I was sinking deep. I said to myself, oh well, I’m not going to make a big fuss about it. I’ll just try to go back to sleep. By the time morning came, she came in the room and saw me completely sunken. I said, “Drea, I’m surrounded.” We bust out laughing. She asked me, “Why didn’t you say anything?” I told her, “I don’t know, I decided to tough it out and not make a big deal about it.” Then I realized I’d done that a lot over the course of my life, especially since becoming a mother. Then I began to tear up, and she said, “I believe God wants you to get back over there and let’s do that again.” So I climbed onto the sunken mattress, and yelled, “Drea!!! Help me!! This mattress is sinking, and I’m surrounded!!” She yelled, “Alright! I’m coming Kesha!!” And she ran over to me and pulled me out. We both just laughed. Now, that’s true friendship.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for reminding me of what true friendship looks like, of how it’s ok to be vulnerable and express my heart, and it’s ok to ask for help. Help me to see friendship the right way, and bless me with the kind of friendship that shows your love, shares your heart, and is filled with your joy. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  5. What a friend I have in JESUS πŸ™Œ Amen and Hallelujah πŸ™ŒπŸ½. My husband is my best friendπŸ’― I just have never ever had a close relationship with women. I always wish I had genuine friendships, but they never ever amounted to a true friendship. I don’t take the word FRIENDS, likely. I pray to God for friends, but so far, He has not sent them to me. 😁 I do have associates. And I am close with my sisters and brothers. So, my mother is my very BEST FRIEND, I LOVE HER TO DEAD. SHE KNOWS ME BETTER THAN I KNOW MYSELF. SO, I DO HAVE ONE FRIEND. GOD BLESS MEπŸ™ŒπŸ½β™₯οΈπŸ™πŸ½β™₯️ AMEN
