Today I am so very thankful for my Sisters in Christ.... I recently had a blow to the heart. I'm not any one special. Most woman have had their share of heart aches. We have all encountered heart ache from a loved one, a family member, a child, an illness or even a death in our family.
What I have discovered is this: The family of God.
I was one of those woman that once hurt - decided that I didn't need ANYONE. Most people would eventually end up hurting me. Disappointing me. Still today. There could still be truth in that statement. People will hurt me and disappoint me, and guess what... I will disappoint and hurt others as well.....
BUT - what I have discovered is amazing relationships in the body of Christ. I do need their support, their counsel, their HUGS...........What amazing love is waiting in the body of Christ to encourage, edify, build up one another!
"We then who are strong ought to bear with the scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to edification. For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, 'The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.'” Romans 15:1-3
I have found many Sisters in the Lord that do exactly what the above scriptures commands us to do!
Thanking God for each and every one of you this day,
