Do you have a BEST FRIEND?

Good morning!

A meditative thought for us to ponder as another week unfolds.


Sometimes the way ahead looks green and promising.  Sometimes it appears shadowed and gloomy.    Do you have a FRIEND who walks beside and with you?

Oswald Chambers wrote, probably not long before his early death in 1917,

If I am a friend of Jesus, I have deliberately and carefully to lay down my life for Him.  It is difficult, and thank God it is difficult.   Salvation is easy because it cost God so much, the manifestation of it in my life is difficult.  God saves people and fills them with His Holy Spirit and then says in effect…..Now work it out….be loyal to ME.  The nature of things and attitudes around you would make you disloyal.

“I have called you friends”

Stand loyal to your friend.    Remember His honour is at stake in your bodily, earthly life.  

Seek beauty!  Love Life!





About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
