Sisterhood In Faith

Lily Among Thorns Song of Solomon 2:2 In the Last Days 2nd Peter 3:3

Shape Up and Fly Right, Chapter 2, Pages 78, 79

I don’t know. I mean come on. I think he’s good looking and all, but look at where we’re at. It may even be flattering, but that’s as far it will ever go. So what’s the point?”

Stevi, ignoring my sense of reasoning, just kept on topic without much thought to our circumstances.

You’re just being overly melodramatic because you never experienced anything like confinement before. Lily, I became a Christian in prison, and just like the thief on the cross, I accepted Christ as my Lord and Saviour. I know a little of the Bible myself. I mean, why do you think I landed myself here in the first place? And doesn’t it say in Matthew 6:34, ‘Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil itself.'”

I understand what you’re trying to say, and I do try and take things as they come. But even though I may have not experience something like this before. nevertheless here we are, and as far as I can see, I’m not going to be going anywhere, anytime soon.”

Lily, things happen for a good reason, and in Romans 8:28 it says, ‘And we know all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.’

The point is, just let things take their natural course and see where it goes. I’m not saying you shouldn’t be cautious, because it’s obvious we’re not in the best of circumstances. But, Lily, it’s just because these days may be more dangerous and uncertain than ever before, are the very reasons when something good comes our way. We should embrace it with all sincerity, because if we hesitate in the very slightest and let the blessed moment slip away, there’s no guaranty it will ever come back to us. Believe me, nothing would make the enemy happier because right now the world is at war with God’s statutes, and this also includes traditional love as it is written in the Bible.

Author’s Commentary

Once in a great while you may come across someone and you happen to click instantly. When opportunities such as these arise in Christ Jesus, it is a wondrous blessing as both become the giver as will as the receiver in your love for the Lord. A fellow sister in Christ is such a blessing to pass on encouragement, to express your sorrows and your joys all in one conversation.

Lily who for the most part is most assuredly in an awful predicament, and because she possesses the determination to never compromise her freedom in Jesus Christ for the bondage of  “Mark of the Beast”, But what a delight it is for Lily to share the same commonality of faith in the bonds of sisterhood as it is written  Revelation 19:10, And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.

The comradery of faith is so very important to Lily since she was forcefully separated from her family, and it is such a comfort to her spirit knowing through a trusted friendship in the Lord she is not alone. And how it does her heart good  to have a sister friend in Christ on the same page as herself in this most horrendous time of tribulation such as describe by the Lord Jesus as it is written in Matthew 24: 21, For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.

Nothing will deter Lily from the love of Christ Jesus, and moving forward. She realizes the  harsh challenges she will endure in captivity by the wicked foes of the faithful. Lily relay’s heavily upon the commonality in the Word with her sister in the Lord, and in divine guidance they look to the day when they are free from  bondage as it is written in Romans 8: 21, Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Yes, it is truly a blessing to Lily to not only have found a beautiful sister in faith as it is written in Ecclesiastes 4:9, Two are better than one; because they have good reward for their labour. But also someone to share each others burdens, and someone to lean upon through the trials of life. Taking great care to to share the love of God in mercy, peace, and in the love as it is written in Jude 1:2, Mercy unto you, and peace, and love, be multiplied.

But on those such occasions when Lily is forced to go it solo, it is a beautiful gift from above indeed for her to be aware in the knowledge of knowing, she is never truly ever alone in Christ Jesus as it is written in Matthew 28: 20, Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
