Can You Keep Up?
I was trying to tell a story to my new friend while we walked around the track yesterday, and I could hardly get the words out because of our quick pace.
Now, I’m no stranger to exercise. I love it actually.
The treadmill and my stationary bike are two of my most prized possessions, and they get plenty of action in my house. But, this new friend was a bit more fit than I, and her pace was a challenge to match.
Huffing and puffing, I went on with my story. I was actually glad for the fast pace, and I told my friend so. I knew it would make me stronger.

Another great writing! It IS sooo important to maintain Christian friendships that can help us grow spiritually - I think the Lord smiles with approval when we encounter Christians that sometimes challenge us to think beyond our experiences. . .at first we may wonder "Whaaaat?" and yet ultimately realize valuable lessons. Of course it is only because of His Holy Spirit that these precious relationships can be initiated and then developed. Thank you Lord!

Thanks Darlene, I agree 100 percent! Yes, God does direct us to godly friends doesn't He? I remember praying for Christian friends when I was a young mother. He was so faithful. Thanks for the comment! It means a lot to me to hear back from readers like you!

Walking with a Christian is exciting went you are not arguing over the church you attends doctrine. When you both can check the book and even though uncomfortable do what the instruction book says. Nancy and I are fortunate this way. The “Holy Spirit” discussions were difficult, with differing levels of interest and enthusiasm. BUT…the decision to consult the manual (Bible) and see what it said made a difference. If what others said did not align with the manual we went with the manual. Nancy pushes my spiritual buttons regularly! Yet it is not she, it is God through her. I must be careful that I remember that because I want to keep my best friend around for another 44 years.

I agree, we do need to consult "the manual" (the Bible) whenever we disagree. Good reminder. Yes, your best friend is definitely a keeper!!
