Paul says we Christians are running a race. Here's what I'm looking at on my run toward Christ.

Today I will not be posting a long post.  I just want to share how thankful I am for my friends.

Today my friend Carolina moved into her new house and several of us helped her.  I say that not to get a pat on the back; rather, I say that because those friends would do the same thing for me.  They truly are great friends.

I also mention that because I don't think any of us that moved Carolina would be friends if it were not for the Holy Spirit living in us.  The friends that moved Carolina are all so different from me.  Different ages.  Different backgrounds.  We're not the same in many ways.  But we have the same Holy Spirit living in us.  He gives us a common bond that is incredibly strong.

Thank you friends.  Thank you Holy Spirit for giving me a closeness to my friends that I couldn't have without you.

Thank God for your friends today.


  1. I love this. I feel the same way with so many of my friends.

  2. This is SO TRUE!! Sometimes I'm amazed at the friends God has given me--we are so different and it's only because of our bond of the Holy Spirit that we cherish each other. The Family of God is definitely made by adoption!
    P.S. Thanks for your help today :)
