Girlfriends – Something to Think About

I’d love the privilege of being part of your week. Click here to subscribe and join me for a journey that may look much like your own. (You won’t want to miss our new series on Girlfriends.)

I hope to give you something to think about over the weekend as a prelude of good things to come for our Girlfriends series.

Think back over the years about the friends that have graced the stage of your life. What role have they played? How many are still playing a staring role? How many wait in the wings of your life until you call them to take their rightful place by your side?

Take time to make a list of these sweet girlfriends and ask God if He wants to use you in their lives. Pray over each of them. You may even want to give them a call and see how they are doing. Schedule some time to get together with those who you’ve unintentionally put on the back burner of your life.

With Thanksgiving on the horizon, perhaps you could begin thanking God for the specific ways they have ministered to you over the years.

I know I have been blessed beyond measure with good, godly girlfriends. Many of them are living definitions of the word “friend.” Their lives often remind me of how far I fall short of being the kind of friend I should and could be. They challenge and inspire me to be better.

As you muse over the friends you have been blessed with, remember the One who sticks closer than a brother. He loves you with an everlasting love. He has enscribed you on the palm of His hand. You are the apple of His eye and the object of His affection. And He has chosen to call you friend, sweet sister! He has chosen to call you friend!

“I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you.” John 15:14

Do you have a friend you are especially thankful for? I’d love to hear about how you’ve reconnected with someone you’ve lost touch with or your plans for doing so.


  1. Can't wait to read all the posts on Girlfriends! Awesome idea for a series!

  2. I got to be with my friend Beth last weekend. We don't see each other and live in different states. I was in her kitchen while we put together a dinner, set the table, and sat around her table with our families. She put her arm around me and said, “I love you.” It was so refreshing, and I really needed it. I felt like it was “sister time.” 🙂

  3. Lynn ~ I'm so glad you popped over here today! I can't wait to share your story. Thanks so much for being such a sweet girlfriend and sharing a part of your heart with us.

  4. Julie ~ That just made my heart smile! I can't wait to see what you're going to share! Sounds like you've got some good fodder from your sweet time with your friend! 🙂

  5. I need to re connect with my best friend soon. She was widowed about 9 years ago and I walked with her through the valley of 'death' and then we processed and walked and prayed and hoped then two years ago after she was alone for 7 years God told her he would restore her life.
    She met someone on line… with 'my help as the matchmaker' and they have been married for over a year now. IT is was match made from heaven.
    I miss her but I know she needs time with him and her 'new family' (hers and his)
    They are a wonderful couple in love… and she is happy because of that I AM HAPPY too.

  6. Thoughts for the day ~ What a blessing it is to have a friendship like that. One where you can lose touch and pick up like you never skipped a day. Beautiful! I can't wait to hear about your reunion!

  7. I'll be popping in to read what you share. Blessings and hugs!
