God Connect: Daily Renewing Your Mind, Body, and Spirit

Upon Every Remembrance

Philippians 1:3- “I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.  Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy.”

Isn’t it nice to reminisce with a friend.  You can talk of old times and remember inside jokes and memories you’ve shared together.  Friendship is a very valuable part of our lives.  Proverbs 17:17 reminds us that a friend loveth at all times.

Paul sets an example for us as he thanks God for the friends he’d made at Philippi.  He prayed for them with joy. How often do you pray for your friends?  Are you making requests to God for them daily? Does joy fill your heart when you pray for them.

Today I challenge you to reconnect with an old friend.  Send them a card or message.  Maybe even a phone call would be appropriate to brighten their day.  Pray for them with joy and thank God for allowing them to be a part of you life.

“Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.” Proverbs 27:17
