These are difficult words to take and the Lord was very kind in being patient with me till I learned all this! And the new thing and the new lesson if you will is that the Temple should have no liens from the world, family member, mother or father or even your local pastor, because they can all mess up big time at any time!...
And the truth is that friends belong to each other and no longer belong to really the traditional family but those head for eternal life! Some in our family may even become our enemies nad may take the sport to taunt us in subtle and open ways!...
["...42.Proverbs 17:17 (Whole Chapter)
A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity..."]
And even friend who may not know you so personally they in spirit pray for yu' and with you when they see yu' in a bad ways and there something about you company they appreciate but sometime amiss with words how to express that new relationship in the spirit!!!..
It seem like a self-fulfilling prophecy because I'm havin' the worst bad way and still hopin' and waitin' for that prayer from a freind! I really wanted to give up on everythin' today and disbelieve everything I ever said! But what is true will perdure through the fire and the storm! And we will see what perdures after the truth is tested in this fire nd' in this hurricane of sorts!...
There are special places in our hearts that only friends can filled. They are different from family or collegues, they bond with us usually through connection of minds and thinkings, even through similiar interests.
Thank God for all the friends we have in our lives, far and near and in this blogsite, including you and Brother Dave.
Thanks for sharing about friendhsip, Brother Frank and continue to enjoy your Starbucks coffee.
