“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.”
~ Colossians 3:16 (ESV ~ emphasis mine)
There are so many things I am thankful for every week; usually I share a little list with you. This week I am stepping away from my list, because I want to dedicate this post to two very special women in my life.
On Friday, Joanne wrote a great devotional called “Who is your Elizabeth“. Over the past 3 1/2 years blogging, I have met some incredible women. Some of them I am blessed to call friends. But two women stand out.
Both of them are very well rooted in His Word, but they are not afraid to admit their weaknesses. I can call on them day and night, ask for prayers, advice, share my sorrows and joys.
What makes our friendships so special though is that they are not afraid to tell me when I err, when I need to be put in my place, or tell me when I am walking in the wrong direction. Even if we don’t agree on a specific subjects, we can discuss them in love.
Although all three of us live in different states, I am blessed that Laurel (who I have met in person) and Lynn (still praying to meet this side of heaven) are my “Elizabeth”. They have stuck with me this past summer; listened to my whining; went before the throne of grace on my behalf. They encouraged me — still do every single.day.
If I have something on my heart, both of them are the first ones I will email. I know that I will receive Godly counsel from them.
Lord of Heaven and Earth. I am forever grateful that you have placed these two women in my life. Lord, may our friendship continue to grow through Your love, grace and mercy. Lord, help me to be a friend to Laurel and Lynn as they have been to me. In the precious name of Jesus ~ Amen
