For You From The Word
A friend loves at all times. (Proverbs 17:17)
For You To Think About
Walter Winchell (1897-1972), an American newspaper columnist and radio commentator, faced a series of personal tragedies: a fall from popularity, rejection by his journalist peers, losing his young daughter to pneumonia, his son’s suicide, and ultimately a personal battle with cancer.
He once said, “A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.”
At some point, each of us has experienced our world crashing down. It could be a medical crisis … a pink slip … a wayward child … a crumbling marriage. Pressure mounts if we feel abandoned or rejected while grappling with adversity.
Those who face an unplanned pregnancy say what they need most is a special person who gives them support while their world comes crashing down. They need a friend who walks in when the rest of the world walks out.
That’s why Birthmothers Friends were created. And that’s why a Friends motto is, “A Friend Loves At All Times.”
For You To Pray
Thank You for the gift of friendship. Show me someone who faces an unplanned pregnancy. Use me to give them support when everyone else walks out. Let me be a Friend that loves at all times.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
