Promises About Friendship

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.  
Proverbs 17:17

Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.  
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
Ecclesiastes 4:12

There is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Proverbs 18:24

Jesus says, "Here I am!  I stand at the door and knock.  
If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, 
I will come in and eat with him, and he with me."
Revelations 3:20

A Perfect Friendship

Friendship is good for your health -- even your cardiovascular and immune systems.  We need good friends even if we have wonderful husbands.  We need the companionship of others in the body of Christ.  We need other women to laugh and cry with.

When we're all anchored in the same harbor, we're able to help each other patch the holes in our boats.  If a friend has hurt my feelings,  I find it hard to be honest about that.  But sometimes speaking the truth about a hurt is very important.  When we can walk through that field with a few thorns in the grass and make it to the other side, our friendships will be stronger and our joy will be real.

Real friendship grows when we are prepared to be there equally in the bad moments and the good, when we weep with those who weep -- and rejoice with those who rejoice.

Promises About Celebrating Your Days

This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Lord, you have assigned me my portion and my cup; you have made my lot secure.  The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; surely I have a delightful inheritance.  I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; even at night my heart instructs me.  I have se the Lord always before me.  Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.  Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure.
Psalm 16:5-9
