Friends in the Making

Whoever loves his brother abides in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling.

—1 John 2:10 (ESV)

God doesn’t just give us dear friends, He encourages us to be likewise.

Footprints in My Heart

“Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.” — Proverbs 18:24 (MSG)

 

Friends are like families. They are God-given people; undeserved gifts that can only be met by a simple gratitude of sincere love.

Friends who would always be there to pick you up. Always there to back you up. Always there to push you forward. Always there. Always… 

Thank God for them.

The Best Kind of Friends

The best kind of friends aren’t necessarily the closest,

The best kind of friends are the ones that mean what they say.

In other words, the best kind of friends are the ones that are sincere. They may not know you that much, but they would choose to understand you. They may fail, but they already won by giving their best. It’s your choice to keep them or not.

Choose your friends wisely, they may not be there forever, but the time spent with them is worth more than a lifetime spent alone.

Diamond in Disguise

“Never take someone for granted. Hold every person close to your heart because you might wake up one day and realize that you’ve lost a diamond while you were too busy collecting stones.”

 

Value each and every person that God allows to come into your life.    They are blessings in ways you may not yet know and understand.

Priceless Gems!

“Many will say they are loyal friends, 
      but who can find one who is truly reliable?”

(Proverbs 20:6 NLT)

Real friends are extremely difficult to find.

Those who would choose to stay when everyone else decide to leave. Those who would laugh with you – sharing your heart’s joy and cry with you – feeling your heart’s pain.

Friends who would never hesitate to rebuke you for the wrong things you’ve done and teach you for the things that need to be done. Friends whom you would find comfort when they agree with you and find growth when they don’t.

They are God’s priceless gems!

Yes! Real friends are extremely difficult to find. Yet I found them — found them at unexpected places in unexpected times of my life. 

Never will I trade them for anything in this world — not fortune nor fame, nor anything that I may gain in exchange of losing them, never will I be shaken. Never will I be leaving them.

Regardless of, any circumstances that would come my way; whatever trials between our way; any difficulties that would haunt my day; unwelcome challenges everyday, I will never give up on them — I will always love them when they are at their best and love them more when they are at their worst.

As time passes by, I’ve realized that it becomes less important to have more friends and more important to have real ones.

Real friends are sadly, few in my life… but I thank God still, for gladly, they are more than enough.

Hope you would find yours. If you already did, don’t just keep them…treasure them!
