I Have the Best Friends

Seriously.  I really do have the best friends a person could ask for!  I'm constantly amazed at how God has woven my life with such an incredible network of close (key word there) friends.  Ones who know how to encourage and help me when needed and ones who aren't afraid to tell me if they feel I may not be seeing things in the right light.

I got an email yesterday from one of these dear friends with a plethora of Scripture to help me remember where my strength comes from.  It's not from my physical body, it is from my Heavenly Father.  As I was reflecting through each verse this morning, I realized that once again I was trying to do this on my own.  My prayer-life has been full with all that's been going on lately, but being in the Word has been lacking.  I was just too tired.  (What a lame excuse!) 

Regardless, God is faithful and has provided me these wonderful friends to help keep me on track - even if they don't know that's how He's using them in my life.  So today as I focus on my Strength, I'll also say a prayer of thanksgiving for the people He has placed in my life.  I said this yesterday to a couple of friends - and even had tears in my eyes as I said it... I cannot imagine going through my life without the friends He has so lovingly placed in my path along the way!

You, my friends, are a blessing and an answer to prayer!  I love you so much!


"I praise you [God] because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well." ~Psalm 139:14
