A friend loves no matter what....

Lately I have felt like I have no "real" friends (except of course my Beloved and my children) around me... Don't get me wrong I have friends( Celina,Lanie) who are just a phone call away but I am talking about a friend that is with me through thick and thin. Through my straight forward ,honest not intending to offend ways, and will love me and truly knows my heart. Who will walk with me through every day life and who loves me at all times and loves me like a sister.

A friend loves at all times,and a brother is born for adversity. (Proverbs 17:17 ESV)

This scripture seeps to my bones, to my very soul. With realizing their is someone in my life that has decided they no longer want to speak to me, without an explanation, without giving me an opportunity to correct my offense or to even give a chance to ask for forgiveness has made me realize two things.

1. Their are those who say they love you but truly do not.

2. I must always remember to be forgiving!

Why the second because this scriptures ring in my ears

If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld." (John 20:23 ESV)

bearing with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgiving each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive. (Colossians 3:13 ESV)


"Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; (Luke 6:37 ESV)


I never want the Lord to withhold forgiveness from me because I am unwilling to forgive someone.

To me the scriptures are life and breath and give me guidance when I don't know where to turn.

 

So to those whom I have offended please forgive me.

 

May you find grace and love to love me.
