Sisters in Christ.........women who believe in Jesus Christ and strive to live a life worthy of the calling of God in this crazy world - do you have one or two? Or, an entire army of these sisters? They are truly angels in your life! And, having a band of angels to help you through these turbulent days is a present you can give yourself!
To have a sister in Christ means that I have someone who understands my flaws, my heartaches, my challenges, my obstacles, my sorrows, my disappointments, my triumphs, my successes, and my joys in this life! A sister in Christ listens to you, lifts you up when you feel down, is a shoulder to cry on, a sage advisor in times of indecision, as well as, holds you in her heart and prays with you! Sometimes they pray for you because your heart cannot...
Do you have a sister in Christ? If not, I pray that you will ask God for one. They are an incredible gift from God!!! They are there for you when you need someone most. A physical presence and a listening ear. A helping hand when the load gets too heavy to bear or an "Angel of Joy" when you want to share something wonderful!
These sisters in Christ are not a substitute for turning to Christ in times of need or praise, but rather an extension (in a sense) of His love. They are needed, valuable and wanted in our lives - they are vessels of love, friendship and accountability.
I happen to have several wonderful sisters in Christ as well as two wonderful biological sisters! Just today, I was burdened with an very difficult situation in my personal life and what did they do? They listened, they cried with me and most of all they prayed with me!!! I could not ask God for a better gift to myself....it is wonderful and also humbles me to the core of my being that God would bless me with such wonderful women to turn to in times of need.
And, I have a bonus in my life: My "real" biological sisters are also my sisters in Christ - WOW! How lucky can one girl be??? Very, very lucky.......at least I believe so!!!
If you by chance, don't have a sister in Christ at this point in your life - you have NOT done anything wrong...........James 4:2 says: "You do not have because you do not ask...."
Don't wait - ASK!!! God is more than willing to provide you with one of these incredible angels........just ask. Simple, easy and FUN!
And, James 1:17 says: "Every good and perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of Lights."
Ask.........it's worth it!!!
