There’s A Place I Love To Tarry. Just To Be Alone With Jesus.


Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

There’s A Place I Love To Tarry.
When My Soul Is Sad, Oppressed,
‘Tis Alone With Christ My Saviour,
Where He Bids Me “Come And Rest,”

Just To Be Alone With Jesus.
Just To Hear Him Softly Say:
“Fear Not, Though The World Forsake You,
“Lo I’m With You Always.’

When The Cares Of Life Are Heavy,
And Beneath My Cross I Bend;
Then I Go Alone With Jesus,
For He Is My Dearest Friend.

When The Tempter Would Assail Me,
Jesus Bids Me To Him Flee;
He’s My Refuge, Friend And Saviour,
He Is All In All To Me.
Amen!

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Thank You Jesus!

There’s One Above All Earthly Friends


Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

There’s One Above All Earthly Friends
Whose Love All Earthly Love Transcends,
It Is My Lord And Christ Divine,
My Lord Because, I Know He’s Mine.

I Know He’s Mine, This Friend So Dear,
He Lives With Me, He’s Ever Near,
Ten Thousand Charms Around Him Shine,
And, Best Of All, I Know He’s Mine.

He’s Mine Because He Died For Me
He Saved My Soul, He Set Me Free,
With Joy I Worship At His Shrine,
And Cry, “Praise God,” I Know He’s Mine.

He’s Mine Because He’s In My Heart,
And Never, Never Will We Part,
Just As The Branch Is To The Vine,
I’m Joined To Christ, I Know He’s Mine.

Some Day Upon The Streets Of Gold
Mine Eyes His Glory Shall Behold
Then While His Arms Around Me Twine,
I’ll Cry For Joy, “I Know He’s Mine.”
Amen!

Thank You Jesus!

Making the important choice of friends certainly reflects who you are and what you love. Due to this, a lot of people make sure they make the right decision since, often times, you make friends for life

Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour

Ephesians_5-2-2: And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour

Here are the kind of friends everybody should have as they would give you the feeling of having a wholesome life.

  1. The fun friend: Now this is a must-have. The fun friend is the fun-loving buddy that can spot a good time and make sure you are always smiling. They are all about enjoying life and they remind you to find the joy in everything.
  2. The optimistic friend: This kind of friend makes sure you do not wallow in negativity. They remind you of the bright side of things and they always encourage you to see the silver lining in any bad situation.

  3. The successful friend: We all want to be successful in life and since our friends have a big role in making us who we are, it is important that we make friends with successful people. They are full of advice and inspiration. You feel you can achieve more simply because you acquaint yourself with success.

4. The supportive friend: We would find it difficult to get very far in life if we do not have someone in our life who supports and believe in us. The supportive friend gets behind your dreams and ambitions without question. They believe in you.

  1. The brutally honest friend: If you are surrounded by a bunch of people who only tell you what you want you hear, this would lead to problems. The honest friend tells it like it is, no matter how hurtful the truth is. Be it your fashion choices or addiction issues, this friend does not sugarcoat what he/she thinks as they know that their advice is mainly because they want to make you better.

If you are lucky enough to find all these characteristics in just one friend, then you have found yourself a best friend for life.

Friends Come And Friends Go, But A True Friend Sticks By You Like Family


Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends

“… that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you …John 17:21a, (NIV)

 

Have you ever wondered why we need each other? Why we crave relationships yet find it hard to build the kind we long for?

 

My craving for closer friendships surfaced as I sat across the table listening to the sounds of laughter and admiring the bond between two women I’d met at a lunch. What they had was uncommon.

 

The way they loved each other, how well they knew each other and how much they enjoyed each other reminded me of a Hallmark commercial. But I wasn’t watching television. This was real life.

 

And when I asked how long they’d known each other, they replied, “More than 60 years.”

 

More than 60 years? Now I was more interested in listening than eating lunch. So I put down my fork and picked up a pen like a journalist and tried to think of as many questions as I could. How had they met? What had they done to build a lifelong friendship? What moments and memories filled all those years and kept their hearts so closely knit together? What’s their secret?

 

Here’s what I discovered:

 

They were intentional about making their friendship last because it mattered to them.

They became friends in grade school, but their friendship grew and continued long after they both married their high school sweethearts, who played football together.

 

Things had to be planned and time together had to be priority.

Their families vacationed together for years. And when they were young and had little money, they’d all get together for a meal while the kids played in the yard. But as their kids got older it became more challenging, so they’d get together and play cards once a week — a tradition that was still going strong.

 

They determined early on they would be there for each other no matter what.

These two lifelong friends were now widowed and counted on each other for companionship and laughter, weekly shopping adventures and everything in between. And they had an understanding between them. If one of them starts feeling down she’ll call the other and say, “Hey, I need to get out of the house.” And then they go do something together.

 

I thought about how different our generation is, how busy we are. How much more we rely on screen time more than face-to-face time. And a twinge of sadness came over me. Would there be anyone in my life I would have known for 40 or 50 years, much less 60 years, when I’m 70 or 80 years old?

 

Besides my nuclear family, which friend will be able to finish my sentences? Who will know me better than I know myself?

 

From the beginning of time, God created us to be in relationship — with Him and each other.

 

Designed in His image, our need for connection comes from God, who has always been in community: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

Jesus’ final prayer for His friends in today’s key verse challenges me. In it, He prays they will know the Father the way He does, and that the world would know His love because of their love for one another. And in Jesus’ prayer we find His heart’s desire for us to be closely connected with each other:

 

“… that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you” (John 17:21a).

 

How can we do this better? Maybe we can be creative and get together for lunch during a busy workday, or meet to plan menus for our families each week, do laundry at one of our houses, or take turns cleaning out each other’s closets or running errands together. 

 

That was their secret. They wanted to be together and so they made sure they were.

 

Dear Lord, the longer I live, the harder it seems to build close friendships. With family and work, and all I have on my plate, intimate friendships drop to the bottom of my priorities. And yet I know deep friendships are part of what You want for me. Show me how to get creative, find a new starting point and be intentional by reaching out to a friend this week. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
