There is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. -Proverbs 18:24 

Wounds from a friend can be trusted. - Proverbs 27:6 

A friend loves at all times. -Proverbs 17:17 

There are many times in life that I have needed a friends. I think back to my childhood, there was a dear friend I stayed with during hard times in my family. Fast forward to high school, there was a friend who I studied the Word and served the Lord oversees with. Then in college, where my friendship with two childhood friends was deepened into a sisterhood.

Throughout my seasons of life, the Lord has blessed me with many wonderful friends. Beautiful, women of God, that I trust. They are women that have been with me through times of joy and times of great pain.

As I think about these women and their impact on my life, I can only pray that I learn from their example. I pray that I am a friend that sticks by my sister through the thick and thin. I pray that I am a friend that can lovingly and humbly correct and rebuke. I pray that I am a friend who always shows the love of the Father.

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.
- John 15:13

Jesus Christ has shown us such a great example of true love and friendship through the laying down of His life for us. Are we following his example in our friendships? May we learn to truly love our sisters in Christ by putting their needs before our own. May we learn to learn to see our friendships as a ministry - a ministry that brings grace, hope, forgiveness and joy.
