No Shortcuts to Friendship

There are no shortcuts to friendship… with God or with others. “No shortcut exists. God has not bowed to our nervous haste nor embraced the methods of our machine age. It is well that we accept the hard truth now: The man who would know God must give time to Him. He must count no time wasted which is spent in the cultivation of His acquaintance.

Your Vocation

“I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” -Ephesians 4:1-3
Ephesians 4.1-3 What is your vocation? In the Strong’s Concordance, the word “vocation” is defined as an “invitation” or a “calling.” In essence, the Lord asks us, “Would you do this job for me?” Marriage, singleness, secular work, ministry work, motherhood, infertility, sisterhood, etc. are some of our respective callings as women. These callings or invitations are from whom?

Blue Skies and Cherry Pies

When you need a glimpse of loveliness, trust the LORD. He is altogether lovely.

“His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.” – Song of Solomon 5:16

When you need a taste of sweetness, trust the LORD. His Words are sweeter than honey.

“How sweet are they words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” -Psalm 119:103
