12.29.18 Praise & Prayer Prompt: Friends Turned Family

PRAISE & PRAYER PROMPT ••• I’m an only child but I’ve been blessed to have many good friends.
Some of whom are so close, that the term “friend” is not really appropriate.
They are family.
One of my very oldest and dearest friends-made-family is home from Indiana and today, I get to see her for lunch (and as you can see by my timestamp vs the time MGFL is usually posted… I’ve seriously overslept)!
Amy and I go back to the 8th grade.
She has been with me for…
Hang on, gotta do the math…
70% of my life.
And her whole family has become my adopted family; and my family has become theirs.
I love these people.
The Bible speaks of close friends.
Before he was king, David’s BFF was Jonathan and in 2 Samuel 1:26, David referred to Jonathan as a brother.
Then Jesus Himself surrounded Himself with friends who were disciples, telling them, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
Today, as you pray, thank God for the family we make through friendship.
Thank Him for the joy that comes from knowing friends who love you and know you like family.
