It's a sisterhood
I have been blessed with some of the most amazing girlfriends. My mom always told me if I was blessed to have one good friend throughout my life I was a blessed girl indeed. The Lord looked down upon me and blessed me beyond words with girlfriends. I have a few that if truth be told they know me better than myself. I have girlfriends I go to when I need advice. You know, those wise ones who always have the words that stretch your heart with a knowledge that only brings peace. I have those I go to when I am having a pity party. Now these are my mercy sisters! lol They will cry with me as I lay in bed with the covers over my head. I too have those who are truthful and share with me when I am going down the wrong path. Their love helps set me back on course. You could say I have a kaleidoscope of girlfriends. Each one brings something special into my life I would have otherwise missed on my own.
Ladies we must come together. One of the greatest gifts we can give a girlfriend is our sisterhood! We belong to a family. We are a Royal Family of God my friends. May we live it. May we act it. May we speak it. Micah 6:8 May we reach out and be the hands of Jesus. May we open our hearts and be true to who we are. Daughters of the King of kings!!
We must teach our children, our daughters what it is to be women of God, sisters of sisterhood. We must be those examples for them to follow or they to will get caught up in the gossip train and believe me it stops everyday and boards many. There is a station in each town, in each work place, in every school and yes, in our churches, the very last place it should be.
We can go through life allowing drama to touch us and others or we can make choice to stay away from drama and live for Christ. Christ and drama do not go hand in hand. We cannot be of Christ and of this world. Ladies, together we can lead others to live better. To enjoy life. To make each day count. We don't want to spend this life living selfishly. This life is not about us. It is about Christ. When we gossip we make it about us. As we put another down, we are really putting ourselves down and inviting Satan into our lives.
Our reputations will be known. Now, will we like everyone? Nope. But we can love everyone. Will we be close to everyone? Nope. But we can be inviting to all. We can reach out a hand in love. We can smile and share Jesus. We are an extension of Him.
We can make today a new day. A new beginning. We can take today and make a difference in the life of another. May we share our love in a sisterhood as daughters of Christ. May we walk as women of God. May we turn from our wicked ways and allow Christ to live in us and through us. Forgive us Lord where we fail each day. Forgive us for falling into gossip. Help us to be the women You have called us to be. May we search Proverbs 31 and seek to be the women we were created to be!!
Micah 6:8 "He has shown you, Oh man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you, but to do justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God?"
Ephesians 4:29 "Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers."
Proverbs 21:23 "Whoever guards his mouth and tongue keeps his soul from troubles."
Just think what we can do for the kingdom of God if we all come together. Nothing in this world can hold us back but our stinkin selves! We can be our own worst enemy. Let's come together girls and make each day worthwhile. Let's share this road together. Let's agree to disagree on subjects. May we hate the sin and love the sinner. Let us put others before ourselves and treat others how we too want to be treated. Let's show Satan he has nothing on us. With Christ living in us, dwelling among us we can do all things!!
