A Fresh Perspective




He is your friend who pushes you nearer to God. – Abraham Kuyper


God has recently given me a friend.  I have several friends, some even close friends.  But this woman is different, she pushes me relentlessly toward God. And she probably doesn’t even know she does. Immediately I knew that she was a kindred spirit. Those don’t come around really often at least not for me.

And to top it off, she is almost 30 years younger than I am.

Age really doesn’t matter when the LORD sends you a friend. She tells me I’m wise but every time we have a Bible study or just talk about God I am the one who learns SO much.

I think times of refreshing can come in the form of someone to walk beside you, even for a short time, and through whom the Lord breathes new life into a weary, dry mind.

Real friendship in the Lord is quite a gift.

Another thing that has happened lately is I’ve been listening to new preaching.  I needed this new, fresh perspective. Not that this preacher is any better than others I’ve heard but he does bring me a new way of looking at the Word. And I’ve received in his teachings a challenge to study and dig deep in the Word which I’ve missed for a while.

These are true blessings from God. People brought to my life to encourage, teach and refresh.  I didn’t even know how low I’d been for a long time but I had prayed and God answered.
