"A friend loves at all times." - Proverbs 17:17
Being a friend .. an honor, a privilege, a hug from heaven. In the past few weeks, the Lord is teaching me the joy of cultivating friendship. To love lavishly, and live drenched in His love, splashing others around me.
A sopping wet adventure in His love awaited me this week. A friend (the one who designed this blog, Jill) needed a hug, one who I had yet to meet in person. Imagine my joy when the Lord asked me to go and deliver His hug from His heart!
Now, join with me in the adventure as I learned a few things (as I transition to the US - remember only been here a few weeks).
1. When driving 12 hours in a day, remember to bring a friend to keep you talking and giggling along the way (Wendy, couldn't have done it without you)!
"If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!" - Ephesians 4:10
2. Prayer is powerful, especially when you haven't driven in 5 years and now are taking a road trip through 3 states in a rental car.
"The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." - James 5:16
3. When going through toll booths, DON'T SLAM on your brakcs. Others will honk at you even if you have no idea what you are doing!
"Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God." - Psalm 20:7
"He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy." - Job 8:21
"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever."
- Psalm 107:1
The Lord is challenging me ... maybe He's whispering to your heart as well. What can we do to lavishly share His love this week. The joy of hearing HIs voice and walking in surrendered obedience is priceless. How can I be His hands and feet to my family, my friends, this nation? How can I live His love each and every day? Who in your life needs a a hug from heaven today?
