God has always been a fan of the buddy system.
Adam had Eve.
The animals came two by two.
David had Jonathan.
Jesus had 12.
Paul had Silas, Timothy, Barnabas and Mark.
You were made like Him, and He is the perfect strand of 3.
Who encourages you? When was the last time you sat across the table from her or shared your cheesecake? Did you notice that when you parted, you were stronger, just by being together?
A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12
God wants you to know He made you to fit with others. The best of the best are those who share your heart and passion for Him. Those cords are the strongest. I know relationships take time, I struggle to maintain them in my life as a busy mom of four. But every effort is blessed.
Now, for something fun! One of my favorite writers and (in)Couragers is Holley Gerth. I’m looking forward to seeing her this week at the Relevant Conference. She is a writer for Dayspring and one of the amazing women behind (in)Courage. She has the sweetest new book called “God’s Heart for You.”
She has graciously sent me 2 copies, and I’m giving them away today! If you win, you get to keep one and give the other to your BFF. Just leave a comment and tell me how you met and what is your favorite thing to do together. I’ll announce the winner next week!
Our October 31 day journey of What God Wants You to Know is almost finished! I hope you will keep stopping by this weekend, some of my favorite posts are in the queue ready for you and your morning coffee. If you missed any posts, check out the summary page here.
