My sweet bloggy friend, Jen from Finding Heaven, has been asking the question what does sisterhood mean to you?  I love that question and the answer leads me to the Word of God.

As iron sharpens iron,
so one man sharpens another.
Proverbs 27:17

Two are better than one,
because they have a good return for their work;
If one falls down,
his friend can help him up,
but pity the man who falls 
and has no one to help him up.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

I struggled with friendships for a long time.  For one, I am so quiet and shy, not easy traits to make friends.  Two, I have a hard time trusting people due to past hurts.  But a few years ago God laid these two verses on my heart and sent a handful of incredible women my way.  These women are my friends, my accountability partners, my encouragers, my sisters.  When I am struggling, these women lift me in prayer, send me scriptures and share with my uplifting words.  When I am rejoicing, these women laugh with me.  I have been so blessed with these women.

I have also been extremely blessed with a wonderful family.  My parents, grandparents and siblings are wonderful and we are all very close.  I know they pray for me and are always there for me.

God did not intend for us to go through life alone.  We need the relationships of family and friends.  I praise God for the sisterhood He has given me and I pray that I can be a friend to them as they are to me.

What does the word sisterhood mean to you?
