Kelly Needham wrote of a difficult time in her life as she grappled with her third miscarriage. One night shortly afterward, she and her friend Abbey were in their church’s prayer room at the same time. “When she asked me how I was, something inside me broke. I don’t remember what she said to me or what she prayed for me,” Kelly wrote. “I just cried. I’ve never cried so hard in front of anyone the way I did with her that night. Her arm around my shoulder and her simple presence in that hard place was a balm to my soul. It was so sweet that words fail to do it justice. I’ll never forget it. The Lord met me that night through her.”
What a blessing to have Christian friends to encourage and support us as we serve Christ! Our loads are too heavy to carry alone, and we need someone to rejoice and to weep with us. It begins when we make ourselves available to rejoice and weep with someone needing us. Today the Lord may bring across your path someone needing your simple presence. Be there!
Friendship is an irreplaceable gift in the life of a Christian.
Read-Thru-the-Bible: Ezekiel 5 – 8
