Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, we come to You today to thank You for the people You place in our lives. Let us thank You for the people that are like us, but also lead us to those that are more like You and less like us. Guide us to that person that stretches our faith, and makes us rely on You. Guide us to that person that takes us out of our comfort zone to serve You. Guide us to that person that makes us say “I’ve never felt this alive serving God”. Praying in the name that served all, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Amen.. thank you Heavenly Father for I find myself being used more and more daily by you.. just being vulnerable and getting out of my way to reach out my hand to another brother to pull them up out of the pit of Hell in which they're living in.. I don't even understand it at times but you use me. I am so thankful that you called me out of the darkness so that I may do your work I'm so thankful for the relationships that I have today most importantly I'm thankful for the relationship I have with you today ..I pray that as my brothers and I draw closer to you that you would just show us the way.. i pray that you will strengthen us and lead us Lord father help us to bond together in unity all In Your Great Name and to be there for one another not because of money or our jobs or anything else at this world tells us .. but just simply because of your love and because we all share the same father. Amen

Amen and Amen. Yes it one thing to cultivate friendships around work and like minded people. I truly think that as believers though GOD is calling us to stretch beyond that to let His gospel reach many more outside of our circle of influence. Great word for today 👍🙏🔥

DAY 304: Friends Who Stick With You

Wealth brings many friends, but a poor man’s friend deserts him.
~ Proverbs 19:4

As men, so many of our “friendships” are based on business and most business boils down to one thing – money. The need for it and ways to get more of it. I would bet that the majority of the guys you consider friends are connected to work.

Think through all of your peer circles and the men you would call friends. How many of them would stick around if you lost your job? How many would stay connected if you changed your vocation and location?

Work friends are fine, but make sure you spend time cultivating connections which will stick with you no matter what. The kind of men who will pray with you, help carry your problems, and allow you into thier secrets.  

Don't wait on others to approach you when God moves your spirit - reach out to your brothers and build those bridges.
