Earlier this week I posted about the need for friendships. This morning I arrived at church to find an anonymous note on my seat. It read:

Dear Rick

You have been such a great influence and supporter for my family and although some may not understand the sacrifices and efforts you have gone through to manifest riches in us, I want to thank you so very much for choosing to sew seed into places uncomfortable and sacrificial.

it is because of people like yourself that I can see a glimpse of Jesus and learn to continue the ripple that comes from God. 

Sincerely from your friend not too far away.

I am speechless. 

 

@ozrick33 :)Praise God!! The Lord is good! He hears the cries of our heart and knows what we need even before we ask. (Matthew 6:8) I rejoice with you that He lovingly blessed you with this. And you are right. It is indeed beautiful. Thanks for sharing it with us.

God does know how to feed His children the proper food at the proper time to get the most growth. 

For it does cause our hearts to rejoice when God so shows His hand in one’s life in a special and specific way. 

Blessings, 

Much love in Christ, Not me

Praise God!  :)   He met your need, Ozrick, at just the right time!  He is faithful.

Ephesians 4:29.... Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment, so that it will give grace to those who hear. 

Your friend encourages us, too!  Let's pass it on!  \o/

      My boyfriend and his ex are in the same class. They're best of friends because theyp apparently realized that they're better off as friends than anything else.
      A few months back I found messages on his phone between them, she was feeling upset so he tried cheering her up and even went as far as to call her baby 😔... Since then we have broken up nonstop and she was the cause of it. The fact that he didn't want to cut her out of his life keeps causing us to break up. He says they're just friends and he keeps making excuses for their friendship. 
      I feel like she holds a higher level of importance in his life and that hurts me.
      He comes from a broken home and because of that whenever we break up he uses that as an excuse to guilt trip me by making me take him back. 
      Our relationship has reached the point where we reply with just one word. 
      I am so tired of hurting and worrying about his loyalty towards me. It's painful to go to bed every night wondering what he has been up to behind my back seeing as we're in a long distance relationship. 
      Before she came into the picture I trusted him with my whole life. Now I can't say the same. 
       
       
      I want to observe a spiritual fast for him and for him to have a change of heart and also for him to become a Godly Christian man, as well as for our future together. But I don't want to do it if it's all gonna be in vain later down the line. 
       
      i am so confused. I really need someone to give me clearance from a Christian view. 
      Please help me

      Hi everyone. This past weekend following into the week ive been dealing with a lot. My boyfriend and I are both believers and followers of Christ. He struggles with addiction, which I have been praying about and seeing God work in his life. He has been doing very well as far as drugs up until this weekend. He has a friend who does not believe in God and openly denounces God. This friend is always supplying him with drugs and bad advice. Everytime they hang out my boyfriend will back peddle so much in life and in his walk with God. This friend has such a dark presence that he will tend to sway my boyfriends belifs a little bit. This weekend he has been on drugs to another degree that ive never seen before. I have been fasting and praying for him constantly to combat this. Today my employer let me know that I wouldnt have to come in out of the blue, which i was relived by. As i was praying i kept getting distracted and my prayers would just stop. This happened about 2 or 3 times when suddenly I got up and walked toward the dresser that he rested his phone on. Before i knew it I picked up his phone and saw that he had gps open to an address very far into the city. I looked to see the last app he had open and turns out he had made arrangements with a prostitute and have since found out that he had met with one yesterday. Ive been fasting and praying for him as well as our relationship. I believe that God wanted me to see what i saw today. What do i do??

      Part of the challenge in being a Pastor is loneliness. I am friends with many of the people in our church but there is and most likely always be some degree of separation between them and me. A recent survey found 78% of Pastors have no close friends. 
      What I am not sure of is how to find and make new friends. 
      I welcome any input.
      Thanks very much
      Rick

      Hi! I wanted to share this sermon by Pastor Nick Nilson called "A Message From The Future You". It is about having Biblically inspired relationships, and not compromising the vision God has put in you. It was a real eye opener for me, and I'm hoping to will help someone today. God bless!!

      I am new but I need to find someone to talk to. I hope I don't overshare. My son and his girlfriend live with me. They have a child together, my granddaughter. They have lived with me for about 10 months. Before that they were homeless, living out of my son's truck. I don't agree with his decisions, but with her being pregnant and they were not in safe circumstances, I decided to ask them to live with me. It has been very rocky at times both between me and them and them between each other. I have had to talk her off of the precipice of self-harm several times. There have been some minor instances of physical "interaction" between them as well. 
      All this to say I am looking for advice, admonishment, encouragement, Etc. My siblings and parents are very supportive but I feel like I need some third party perspective sometimes.
