A friend is a God-designed oasis
that appears when He chooses
to minister to us in person.
Each of us has a life to live out for Him,
serving others through our gifts
in the opportunities He brings our way.
Sometimes our ministries coincide
with those of our friends
and we work side by side.
At other times we are called to minister
away from the sight of the oasis.
In those seasons, we remain connected
to our friends through prayer,
supporting each other from a distance,
until times of refreshing,
— visit, a phone call, a prayer time together–
bring the renewal of the oasis.
What sweet fellowship is shared
by hearts which have found the joy
of walking daily with the Lord!
What a blessing from above when our lives
allow us to enjoy moments near
the oasis of friendship!
