Another excerpt from Come Away My Beloved by Frances J. Roberts.
“Surely He has given you ministering angels, who may sometimes come to you in the form of your friends.”
A friend loves at all times…
I don’t know about you, but my friends mean the world to me! I can’t imagine my life without them. They encourage me, make me laugh, speak the truth to me and hold me accountable. Friends are the family we choose to have in our lives and to share our lives with. I can think of many times when my friends were the ministering angels I needed. I love the thought that God puts our friends in our lives at just the right time to share just the right message.
A couple weeks ago I was talking to my friend, Fredrica, about wanting to get a job, but nothing was working out and I knew God was speaking to me in that. She reminded me that I needed to listen to the answer “no” God was giving me and realize that it was because He had said “yes” to something else – namely this website and blog and I needed to focus on it. She spoke the truth to me and encouraged me. Having friends speak the truth to you even if it isn’t what you want to hear and giving you a godly perspective is the best kind of friend to have. I am so thankful for all of my friends – especially Lynn, who created this website for me!! Take some time today to thank God for your friends. Share a comment about a time when your friends were ministering angels to you!
