BFF…Best Forever Friends!

 michelle2

Do you have one of those friends who knows you better than anyone else? I do! God blessed me many, many years ago!  He has actually blessed me over and over again with amazing friends!   I truly believe this has been one of life’s greatest blessings from God – Best Forever Friends.  Living in so many different places has allowed me to meet many wonderful people and thankfully, make many best forever friends.

This week I have had the incredible privilege of having my longest BFF visit! Along with her daughter, she made the trek from Arkansas to Tennessee.  The awesome thing about this BFF is that we have been friends since we were two years old. Needless to say, we have been friends A LONG time! Above is a picture of us celebrating my 3rd birthday at our daycare. Many of my first memories include Michelle.

After Michelle left, I was going through Instagram photos and someone posted this scripture:

1 Thessalonians 5.11
Therefore encourage one another and build each other up,
just as in fact you are doing.

Michelle came to mind as I read this post.  She has always encouraged me NO MATTER WHAT.  God has blessed our friendship in many ways over the years. We are more like sisters due to the fact we have known each other so long.  We were roommates in college and then again once we graduated.  We worked together several times throughout those years.  She knows me…the real me! We can get together after months/years of not spending time together and it is like we were together just yesterday.

I felt compelled to blog about this so I could do as she has done for me – ENCOURAGE and BUILD UP others! Michelle is definitely not my only BFF…but she is the one that has been around the longest and through the most with me.  I know I can go to her NO MATTER WHAT! We all need one or more of these type of friends.  We also have to be one!

There are SO many of you reading this that are my BFFs and I am thankful for each of you! All of you have made me a better person in so many ways! You know who you are…:)  Thank you for encouraging me and building me up in life.  God has blessed me with you!

Proverbs 24.14

A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

 
Ecclesiastes 4.9-10
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work:  If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
 
Proverbs 27.17
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
Life is tough as we have seen over the last couple of weeks…we all need friends! Friends we can count on through thick and thin. Friends who will be real with us when we need it and friends who will love us no matter what.  Let me encourage you to be one of those BFFs to someone! Let’s encourage others and build them up!
Proverbs 27.17
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.
