"True friends are like angels God places in our lives to bless us with His love and peace. " -Unknown
Take a moment in grateful meditation for the true friends God has perfectly placed in your life. The following passage is from His Princess Bride, a meditative devotional by best selling author and motivational Christian speaker Sheri Rose Shepherd.
I want you to look for a true friend-not just any friend. Find someone who brings out the best in you-a girlfriend who is a gift from Me. My love, it takes time to build a strong foundation with a true friend, so choose your tools wisely.
The first tool you'll need is transparency...the ability to see within each other's heart-your strengths and weaknesses.
The next tool is truth. I am the way, the truth, and the life for you. You will discover the rewards of real friendships when you speak truth and bring refreshing words of encouragement to each other.
Finally, your friendship will need to be sealed in love, girded with trust, and encircled with prayer. Remember, My princess, you must become the kind of friend you desire to have.
Your King and True Friend
