Day 6: Friends for Life

Bobbi Jo and I together, today

Welcome to Day 6 of 31 Days of Healing Leaves: Awaking Us All to the Glory of God in our Midst.

In honor of my blessed friend, Bobbi Jo, and our almost twenty years of friendship, and the awesome God who in His loving discipline of us, set us apart from each other unto Himself in May of this year, to reveal the hidden riches of His friendship for us in our hemming in. Now, He is leading us back out into the spacious places of His grace for us, binding us together in love to prove to us that nothing can ever separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus.

Praise God that He who is in us is stronger than he who is in the world. Our Jesus living and breathing inside of us is now redeeming all the enemy thought he had stolen from us and killed and destroyed between us, giving us back a double portion in a heavenly inheritance now unfolding in our midst. 

Psalm 121:3-4 NIV
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
4 indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.

Hebrews 12:11 ESV
For the moment all discipline seems painful rather than pleasant, but later it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.

Friends for Life

This I know
That You are for us
That You desire
The best for us
For us to run into
Your open arms
Of love for us.

Not to be the enabler
Not to sit and listen
To our accuser's chains
But to speak the truth
In love to arise
And shine Jesus
The truth of the Cross

Not to cling to
The old in fear
And condemnation
Not to hide away
But to run into
Your open arms
Of grace for all.

Not to be victims
In pain and bitterness
Our beds making
But in boldness and
Courage, in Spirit breath
Arising to pick up our mat
And run into compassion.

Declaring this is
Who You truly are
Not just reserving
The crumbs for us
Beneath Your table
But a royal banquet
At Your table together.

Calling all
Your beloved children
To come and drink
Of Your love together
Free of charge
Living waters
In Jesus flowing.

This I know
That You are for us
That You desire
The best for us
For us to run into
Your open arms

Love, truth,
Grace and
A table together
Living waters
In our Jesus flowing
Friends for Life.

Psalm 16:6 ESV
The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance.

Psalms 103:19 NIV
The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
