I haven’t the slightest clue where my relationship with my God would be if it weren’t for the friends He has placed in my life. God has blessed me with a slew of close friends that have been with me through thick and thin. In times where the outlook on life seemed pretty bleak. Times where I didn’t think that I could go any further with my faith, they were there to sharpen me as iron sharpens iron. Friends that help to rebuild churches and change the lives of the less fortunate. Listen when you need to vent, encourage you to be better and hold you when you can’t seem to stand upright. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve cried on their shoulders and shared my deepest of regrets. God places these wonderful persons in our lives to help change and mold you into a better Christian. If you have a friend or friends like these, make it known to them today how much they are appreciated. Take the time to encourage or inspire them. Thank them for the impact they have made in your life, be the friend that sharpens. God bless you all and hope you have a wonderful day.
