We Need Girlfriends!

Pin It

I have blogged several times about the importance of having godly women in your life. God made us relational for a reason. To be able to grow and stay strong as a mom, we need the support and love a close friend can give.

I found this poem several years ago and wanted to share.

A friend is one who STRENGTHENS you with prayers,
BLESSES you with love,
and ENCOURAGES you with hope.

Do you have a friend like this in your life? Are you a friend like this in another woman's life?

If you do not have a woman like this in your life, I encourage you to pray for one.  Ask God to provide you with a friend who can hold you accountable and help you keep perspective in the craziness of life. 
Matthew 7:7-8
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.
For me, God has provided many of these friendships through church and Bible studies.

Other possible sources:  the ABCJesusLovesMe Facebook Group, and SISTERS Facebook Group.  There may be women in these groups that live close to you.  But, you will never know until you ask!

How does your girlfriend bless you?  Take a moment to brag on her!

  1. Such wise advice! I am doing a True Woman study with a wonderful group of ladies bi-weekly and being "relational" is a main topic. I have to brag on all those women. It is wonderful, and rare, to have a group of women who can be so honest with each other and yet suffer no judgment from one another. I also think that meeting in each other's homes lends to a more conducive environment for female bonding.


The Our Out-of-Sync Life blog focuses on encouraging women to deepen their spiritual life, simplify daily tasks, and impress Jesus on the children around them.
