Godly Girlfriends


Everywhere I look read these days the popular topic seems to be geared towards Godly girlfriends.  I can't help but think about my own special peeps that God has graciously lavished upon me.  Each of them special and unique to the time and place God had me when HE brought them into my life.  I'm so thankful for each one of them.  

HINT: Surely by now you've figured me out.  I LIKE PEOPLE!

Most of my friends live far away.  I live in Indiana and they, well…live all over.  Now don't get me wrong, I have friends where I live.  But only one [extra special] friend that I know I can count on.  A Godly friend that loves me in spite of how wacky I behave.  She may not know it….but I thank God for her everyday!  

I miss my string of long distance friends.  I know they–get me.  I don't have to pretend or be something else with them.  I can tell them intimate details of what's going on in my life and trust them to not hold weaknesses against me.  I consider it a privilege to share in the battles they fight as well.  It's almost like therapy having friends that sympathize the tough stuff in life.

Godly girlfriends are more than just acquaintances.  They are life do-ers in our journey.

The last few years have been a struggle.  It seems that finding real friends in my area has been more of a challenge than it's ever been in my life.  I often feel like I'm on a completely different planet (I realize this could just be my own weird conclusion) than everyone else.  I long for my relationships to be more.

Which brings me to….

Why do we only do surface friendships anymore?  You know what I mean, don't you?  We play along as friends but do we invest in one another?  Do we spend time together?  Do we share life together?  Are we willing to overlook faults in each other?  Am I a friend like that?  I want to be.

Can you think of a friend that really understands you?  One that has your back no matter what?  Me too.  I'm really trying to come to grips with living in the same place for 10 years and only having one serious friendship.  I wonder everyday if I'm the only one like this.  It seems I am…..



I'm so thankful for my friends.  Especially since I know they were hand-picked for me by you.  Help me to be the kind of friend that loves at all times and let YOUR love be what they see in me.
