Because you make me do my best

I've been thinking a lot about friendship lately. I know it's partially because of some situations I'm dealing with in my own life, but I realized today that it more than likely has a lot to do with these two. Talking to them, editing these pictures, thinking about the joy I still get from this day. I've never been so in awe of a friendship in my life. They are truly wonderful. :)


I've been praying for direction and wisdom. That I won't be blind to what I need to change in myself regarding my friendships, that I won't keep operating out of fear. It feels so good to share this, so I may WILL dive more into this when i get home. Anyway, this morning I came across this scripture.


"Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle." Romans 12:9-10

It spoke to me on so many different levels. It's not always what you want to hear, but God answers prayer.


"The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand or the kindly smile, or the joy of companionship. It is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone else believes in him and is willing to trust him with his friendship." -Corrie ten Boom
