Acts 15:32 ESV "And Judas and Silas, who were themselves prophets, encouraged and strengthened the brothers with many words."There are those seasons in our life when we just need a friend! Today's verse shares about the comfort of friends! I was low in spirit, saddened but not sure why, and then some of my good close friends realized I needed a little encouragement. A simple dinner with friends, those that knew me well and could tell I needed a little boost, made the difference. I could face the future, no matter what was to come, with the thought that I had godly friends who cared! Having to step down from the Fire Department, give up building houses and let my handyman business shut down, left me not knowing what the future held. God had a plan and brought some good friends to encourage me. We all need a friend to help us when things get tough but the key was letting them know the truth about where I was and what I was facing. Don't go it alone, let others in and most importantly let Him in, He will show us the Way, and bring others to help! peace, tom
