Friendship God's way

This post demonstrates what the bible speaks about friendships


[6] Faithful are the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.
How many of us have been afflicted by the wounds  of a friend and not gone past the same.

[9] Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so doth the sweetness of a man's friend by hearty counsel.
When we share what's in our heart to our friend it brings a sort of sweetness to our soul

[10] Thine own friend, and thy father's friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother's house in the day of thy calamity: for better is a neighbour that is near than a brother far off.
I wonder how many of us follow this command.We live in the times of out of sight is out of mind!

[17] Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
How many of our days are made at the sight of a close friend.

Sirach 6
[5] Sweet language will multiply friends: and a fairspeaking tongue will increase kind greetings.
We know this one,in today's world the more sweet you get you are soon in for some harsh surprises!

[7] If thou wouldest get a friend, prove him first and be not hasty to credit him.
How many of us would have saved ourselves from the agony of the ditch if we had just heeded to this command.

[8] For some man is a friend for his own occasion, and will not abide in the day of thy trouble.
How true, the people who hang around you for some advantage and you thought it was for you!

[9] And there is a friend, who being turned to enmity, and strife will discover thy reproach.
How many of our lives have been plagued in the present by former friends.

[10] Again, some friend is a companion at the table, and will not continue in the day of thy affliction.
Do you find yourself alone battling your sorrows and wonder where your companions fled.

[13] Separate thyself from thine enemies, and take heed of thy friends.
This is real good advice, take it.

[14] A faithfu1l friend is a strong defence: and he that hath found such an one hath found a treasure.
How many of us have been blessed with one such friend, very few,I must say

[15] Nothing doth countervail a faithful friend, and his excellency is invaluable.
Yea, the faithfullness of a friend is invaluable....that's why they are so rare to find!

[16] A faithful friend is the medicine of life; and they that fear the Lord shall find him.
How blessed we are , the Lord has promised us faithful friends.

[17] Whoso feareth the Lord shall direct his friendship aright: for as he is, so shall his neighbour be also.
Thank you almighty , for bringing good friends our way

[12] Devise not a lie against thy brother; neither do the like to thy friend.
Your friend is equivalent to a brother so cheat him not.

[18] Change not a friend for any good by no means; neither a faithful brother for the gold of Ophir.
Have you noticed no one is really surrounded by the same group of friend , they are changing constantly

[10] Forsake not an old friend; for the new is not comparable to him: a new friend is as new wine; when it is old, thou shalt drink it with pleasure.
My old friends its my heart's greatest desire you will always be there for me

Our God Reigns

Sitting in front of disillusionment's,disappointments and a total sense of helplessness.
We sometimes forget that God is in control,
We only see the situations but not his huge hands working on our behalf
We start confessing negative and let go of the precious strings of trust which kept us intact all these years
We have been delivered a 1000 times before, we have been healed several times
We have felt his presence and his healing touch
Yet when we see our situation we forget our past and start  believing what the devil wants us to
Where is our faith? We read about David and Goliath umpteen times yet we don't have the strength to fight an ant..
We read the persecution of Paul and the apostles every other page of the book of Acts yet we feel we need to be exempted
The slightest bit of trouble and we start squeaking....the christian in us goes meek..
Rise up brothers , our lord reigns,,,,he's still on the throne....he's not going to give up on you Or let you face the battles by yourself..
He's going to carry you through your weakest moments, he's going to squash your enemies flat..
All you need to do is just believe...for our god reigns..
I conclude with words from a song that someone wrote, based on Isaiah 52:7:
How lovely on the mountains are the feet of him who bring good news, good news.
Announcing peace, proclaiming news of happiness.
Our God reigns! Our God reigns! Our God reigns.
You watchmen lift your voices, joyfully as one. Shout for the King, the King.
See face to face the Lord restoring Zion.
Our God reigns!
Waste places of Jerusalem break forth in joy. We are redeemed, redeemed.
The Lord has saved and comforted His people.
Our God reigns!
Ends of the earth see the salvation of your God. Jesus is Lord, is Lord.
Before the nations He has bared His holy arm.
Our God reigns! Our God reigns!

Ms. Priya Antony's abilities in approaching emerging markets in IT Education especially for African Public-Private Institutions has won her several accolades from various inter-disciplinary quarters particularly in her skilled rapprochement towards the growing Afro-centric IT demand, needs-based assessment of the African IT students coming to Bangalore for the right quality education, and for her philanthropic services that have greatly contributed to the welfare of several international student communities for Bangalore.
Not only that, Ms Priya has successfully established international nodal points for business interests in IT Education between Bangalore and several countries and these nodal points also include the countries of Africa such as Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Cote D'voire, Sudan, South Africa, Mozambique, Namibia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon, Rwanda, Ghana, and The Gambia.
