God created each of us to be unique. He created each of us for a purpose. He put hopes and dreams and desires into each of our hearts. He created each of us with different talents and gifts.
Read I Corinthians 12:1-31.
I Corinthians 12:12-13 The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ. For we were all baptized by[c] one Spirit into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, slave or free—and we were all given the one Spirit to drink.
God has given us all talents and gifts. Remember that there are differences between a talent and a gift. A talent is a natural ability you are born with, or one that you have developed. A gift is given by the Holy Spirit for the purpose of benefiting, edifying, and building up the body of Christ. Since these gifts are given to us by God, they will enable us to bear results for The Kingdom that go way beyond our natural abilities.
"A friend loves at all times." ~Proverbs 17:17

Friendships play a huge part in our faith. Surrounding yourself with like-minded people helps us stay on the right path. We all have a friendship that goes deeper than an occasional phone call. These friends inspire us to grow in our faith and they lift us up when we need lifting. These friends know what we are thinking sometimes without us ever saying a word.These friends hold us to our word. They listen to us vent and remind us when we need to let things go. They also tell you when the dress really doesn't look so flattering or when you have brocolli stuck between your teeth!
