Finding Sisters in Unexpected Places
Lord, I don't know about all the other ladies out there, but I have trouble finding "like minded" ladies in real life. Women who wake up each day, waiting to see what you have planned! I have acquaintences at work. I have friends at church. I have even advertised for prayer partnes. But people are so busy, too busy to pray or study the Word with me. For a while now, I have had such a longing for this type of friendship. Just one woman, Lord, who I can trust my heart with, and bare my soul. And she will go with me in prayer, to bring my concerns before you, Lord. She won't gossip about the things I share with her. Prayers about my kids, my marriage, the future of our Country. A sister to share Bible study and accountability with. Lately I feel so seperate and apart from others I know. Why am I the only one who feels this way? I know my children think I'm different from other moms they know. I don't try to be different, Lord. I just ended up that way, I guess. I know that you said that "Straight is the gate and narrow the way that leads to heaven". So maybe my lonliness is a good sign!
Lord, I believe that I have found a few friends like the sort I have been looking for. I found them on the internet! My sister said, "I heard you have a twitter account". She has been after me for years to get a facebook account. I said, "yes, I do. But really just for Bible study type things". A few women (three in fact) have volunteered to pray with me. And I have ladies (and gents) that I am reading the Bible in 90 Days with, and have #B90Days twitter parties with. I have a Maximize Your Morning Group for waking up early to study your word. Yes, I would still like to sit over coffee in person and read, study and pray with friends. But sitting by my computer is almost as good! I can still bring my coffee! Thank you, Lord, for this unexpected blessing. Let me see where you are leading me, Lord. Amen. Honey
