Christian Women Friendships

by Wendy


I would like to discuss Christian Women Friendships.







Note from Women's Bible Study Leader:

Wow Wendy! That is such an important topic that really doesn't get talked about enough. I'm so glad you brought it up!

God's Word says:
Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works. And let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of His return is drawing near.- Hebrews 10:24-25 (NLT)


As women, we are also encouraged to:
wisely train the young women to be sane and sober of mind (temperate, disciplined) and to love their husbands and their children, to be self-controlled, chaste, homemakers, good-natured (kindhearted), adapting and subordinating themselves to their husbands, that the word of God may not be exposed to reproach (blasphemed or discredited). -Titus 2:4-5 (AMP)





So, let's talk about Christian Women Friendships!


Do you think they are important? If so, why?

And, how can we as women be better friends to one another?

Looking Forward To Reading Your Comments!

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

controlling friend
by: Anonymous

I have a sister-in-law who does not understand that I cannot give her the amount of time she needs on the phone (we are in different provinces). We are good friends and when we first met, 2 years ago we did talk almost every second day just having so much to talk about and learn about each other as new found family. After a year or so I realized I could not keep up the long conversations every other day and she actually asked me to be honest and tell her if it was too much for me. I was honest and said it was too much, with three children and a husband I was spending way too much time on the phone. I said it nicely and said we should catch up once a week and then we could talk for a long time. She got offended and it started a battle for a couple of months. After this simmered down it would happen again every couple of months. We just talked and two days later she texted me asking if I wanted to chat. I told her I was out and would be going out that evening....she said if I did not want to talk to her to just tell her. I am so frustrated and just don't know what to do. She said the friendship was one sided yet she cannot accept the fact I cannot talk all the time although I make a real effort when she wants to. I feel like I want to take a break from this friendship but am worried because I am close to my brother who is her husband. She is a godly woman but I feel like she is trying to control me and cannot accept the time commitment. I really don't know what to do about it. I feel, and so do three close people to me that this is not normal behavior on her part as a Christian woman. Any suggestions?

Weeding the Garden
by: Crystal Johnston

I have recently been through an ordeal with a gal that has been my friend for many years. The friendship was fizzling out and I was seeking the Lord for a resolution to the problem. Well he gave me one. Women's friendships are like gardens, most of the time they blossom beautiful flowers but sometimes weeds get in. Now be aware that some weeds look like flowers and so you leave them in your garden. After a while the weeds will surely show themselves by strangling out the pretty flowers leaving only destruction in the bed. That is exactly what happended to me. The weed was there for years and when all my flowers were gone and it was just me and the weed I had to rip it out. God brought to me the perfect situation to desolve the friendship and have since been able to re-plant my pretty flowers. Now my garden of friends is flourishing and I couldn't be happier. Praise the Lord for Godly women.

Your sister
by: Kathie

Woman, I believe are guarded because we will be judged. We are so seeking perfection in our homes, in our families, our appearances, that if
we show ourselves vulnerable or needing help through prayer, then the facade we have painted has become tainted.
One of the greatest conducts a christian woman could make, would be to be transparent. When we become transparent, we become approachable. Then, and only then can we ministry to each others needs.
Confindentuality is also so important. If you want to be used, be trusted first. Then woman can open up to you, and you can be used to minister.
Woman, let's break down the barrier the enemy has placed in our spirits and begin to be woman God can use to minister to each other. We are sisters in Christ, let's start looking like it through love for each other by serving one another

Friendships are Essential
by: Tanya

Godly Friendships are important. We need people like us around to help us walk through this journey called Christianity. God never said that it was going to be easy. This is why he removes the wrong people and brings in the right ones to help with the process,growth and development.

As women,we can be better friends to each other by learning to appreciate ones differences. Understanding that we were made uniquely but in the image of God. Eliminating the spirit of fear,jealousy and resentment. I believe if we can understand God's love for us and how he forgave, never judged,never criticized us, then we can learn to share that same love with other women. John 3:16 says God loves us so much that he gave his only begotten son. We can be better friends to each other if we love the way God loves us.

Be Blessed,
Tanya

I totally Agree!
by: Ameerah

I was actually watching Joyce Meyer this week, and they were having a series related to her Woman to Woman book. There were a panel of women and they all asked her questions. One of the issues that came up was Christian women friendships. It really struck me because I think women out in the world are so many issues trusting other women that you will hear many say they prefer men friends over women friends. Somehow, this has crept into the church!

I know that I personally have struggled with this. I trust other Christian women - to an extent. This is really forcing me to seek God and ask why I still feel so guarded.

Sincerely answering your questions
by: Wendy

I have been going through a time of soul searching this subject. Yes, I believe that Godly women can be an inspiration to each other. We can be different, yet at the same time help each other through this journey. We need to know that we will be loved and excepted by each other right where we are on our journey. Trust is another value that is needed to have in that person. It is a value that I feel is taken lightly. In my heart I believe whatever is shared with me is meant to stay with me and God. We are to pray for each other and give this friendship the respect it deserves.
