Whew! I’m late posting this, but I still wanted to get it in for today. On Fridays, I join a woman named Lisa Jo, who’s in South Africa, if I remember correctly, for a little thing she likes to call 5 minute friday. You basically write for 5 minutes without stopping to edit or check if it’s right. She gives a prompt, and whoever wants can link up to her blog through her Linky tool. That means YOU!! :). Anyone can join. I’ve never even met the woman and I join her whenever I can. If you don’t know how, just put your post in my comments box and I’ll send it to her.

Today’s prompt for “Fewer Words Thursday” is Serenity. Please join Andrea and I on our quest, once again to write a post positively and in few words.
I thought it was odd that today’s prompt was on serenity because last night, I asked a couple of people to pray for me because of a therapist appointment I had today. It was my first appointment and I was really nervous about it. I have a traumatic memory from my childhood that is trying to come through and was afraid he would unlock it today but it was a “getting info.” kind of appt. today. I prayed last night and was not nearly as scared today. I sort of felt a serenity and that I could deal with it. I told God last night that if anyone could help me, it would be Him. I believed and He did help me.
I can’t describe how thankful I am. It brings me a little closer to understanding His love for me!

Genesis 11-Second test of friendship.
Friendship with God:
What Abraham’s life teaches us about walking with God–TRUST
An important part of friendship is trust.
James 2:23-“and the scripture was fulfilled which says, ‘And Abraham believed God and it was accounted to him as righteousness,’ and he was called the friend of God.”
What made Abraham so close to God is that he trusted Him. In the first lesson of Phillip’s, we saw that Abraham was called to leave his home and “go not knowing”, leaving a nice place to live to live in tents in the desert.
