Caleb Friends

Robin left a comment asking what a Caleb Friend is.

A Caleb Friend is who believes the impossible with you.

These friends are the ones who believe the Lord will give you the Promised Land--whatever that is promised to you by Him--no matter how big the giants are that stand in your way.

They have a different spirit about them, one of simple faith and undaunted passion.

These are the ones who jerk you up by your collar and shake you out of your pity party. They are the ones who stand over you when your heart is broken and you would rather walk off the battle field than stay there.

They are the ones who don't quit--even when you wish they would.

And when you cry, they hand you a few kleenex, listen patiently, and then say, "Okay, so the bully pushed you. Stop whimpering and go kick its butt. Your Daddy's bigger than it is."

Their phones work and are answered all hours of the night.

They rejoice in your victories.

They are not competitive but know you both have promises of God, and they will stand fast to help you realize yours.

They are the ones you want with you when you go into battle because they know Who controls the battle.

They are the ones who see the best in you and don't let you forget who you really are.

They are priceless...

Imagine being a parent barely able to pay bills and someone comes to your home and promises to educate your daughter and find her a job. You agree, hoping to give her a better life. Then she disappears, and you find out she is not being educated. Instead, she is a prostitute, a victim of human-trafficking, beaten and abused daily. Sounds like a nightmare, doesn't it? For 100,000 girls in India, this is reality. To find out how you can help, please visit Red Light Rescue.
