Friends Are A Gift

It came to me last night as I was sitting in my living room surrounded by the friends that had been part of our small group for the past couple of years, how very blessed those of us are who have been given such treasures as friends. They are far more valuable than real gems or gold. They are so precious and wonderful. As we talked and sang and ate Christmas goodies, I looked at each one and thought of how God had used them to touch my life.. change my life and change me.

There was a couple there whom the Lord had brought into my life several years ago and who for a long time I avoided if I could because I didn't understand them. Now they were some of our best friends.. they were so generous with their time and what little money they have. They are always there for whomever needs them.. they are constantly giving.. they are God's angels.

There was the lady who a couple of years ago barley spoke to anyone, but once loved, blossomed and is a continuous blessing to me and our church family. She can pray from such a sincere heart. The first time I heard her I cried.

There is the couple whose marriage was broken and we watched God put it back together in a way that was miraculous. They are an inspiration beyond words of the power of God to change hearts.

One lady in the group thought I didn't like her until she became part of our small group.. She didn't really know me. She saw me on the platform as the Worship Leader and Choir Director. She saw me busy, but when she came and saw me in my home, she realized I was just like everyone else and she realized I loved her.

There is a man in our group who sold drugs, got caught, found Jesus and spent time in jail.. I don't like people who sell drugs. My daughters used to buy those drugs. It hurt our life a lot, but I love this man. I love how God did a complete overhaul in his life. I love how he is so in love with Jesus, that his passion for Him oozes out on every single person his life touches. He has touched my life in a powerful way beyond what words can express.

There is another man in our group that has been a hard one for me to love, in fact, many struggle to even like him at all. He thinks he's humble, but all he does is brag about how God uses him or wants to use him. God is using that man to keep me in place, to keep me humble. He is using me him to learn to love the unlovable. I think it's working.

Then there is the couple who have become such dear friends, who we have such a conection with it is almost scarey. We are so much alike, only the opposite. My husband and the wife are alike and the other husband and I are alike. When the 4 of us are together we just have the best of times. God has poured out His blessings in a big way in this friendship and I believe it has only begun.

These are just a few of my dear friends.. How did I get so blessed? These dear people don't know how God is using them to love me and teach me and help me to understand the kind of love that Jesus has for me. What a wonderful gift!!

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Excellent article - only one mistake... "He is using me him to learn to love the unlovable." That "me him" thing throws me for a loop. Other than that, EXCELLENT work! Thanks, and may God bless. Sincerely, Dan Blankenship :-)
