Neglecting Friends: The Greatest Friend.

Hello Ladies,

I realize it has been a very long time since I have wrote to you. For sometime now I have been busy with struggles and decided it was best to take a break from writing on this blog.

My title is "Neglecting Friends: The Greatest Friend" Life is very quickly passing by, in the blink of an eye your day is done and it's already time for bed. What I really want to talk to you about is two major parts

Neglecting friends. But who? I'm talking about our greatest friend God. Let me ask you something.
If you had a friend of whom you shared great acquaintance with, you talked on a daily bases but suddenly you were swept up by life's cares and struggles. Just as it happens with friends you talk less and less, but when you need something you go to that friend for comfort and advice, guidance and so on.
Have you ever stopped to think how you would feel if YOU were that friend, how you would feel if your friend hardly talked to you except when they needed something. You'd feel downright used and upset. No friend deserves that treatment, especially your greatest friend God.

How do you think God feels when you talk to him sometimes but more and more when you need something. Do you ever stop to say "Thank you Lord for your blessings on me" Take a moment to say thank you Lord for the blessings in my life. Though everything is not alright in life right now. It's easy to see the hopeless despair and sorrow in rough times. How about looking at the good in your life. "Count your blessings name them one by one"

Take a moment would you please. Sit there and whether your having a wonderful time in life or things are not so peachy. Please take a moment and think about all the things God has blessed you with whether it be little or big, and say "Thank you Lord"

This should go into your daily prayers, Not just when things are good, but we need to thank him when things are bad too! Yes, we need to take a moment aside in hard times and thank him for the blessings that he has given you. Don't neglect any of your friends especially God. He doesn't deserve that, no one does.

This is just a thought for the day. I notice so many people having troubles and then they become very into God when things get good for them or when they need something. Don't let God be that friend you talk to just because you need something, make him a greater friend than that.

Dig into his word daily and then add in prayer mix it up and have a conversation just as you would with a friend. You wouldn't believe the change in your life it makes. What better of a friend to tell all your sorrows hopes and dreams then to the greatest friend of all, the one who listens always.

In His Name,
