Value Your Circle of Friends

Who’s in Your

Circle of Friends?


I read this devotional thought once about our “circle of friends.” I realized what an important concept this is not only for the sake of friendship and socialization, but also for networking and professional growth. So I thought I’d share it! 🙂



“I believe we need to have what I call ‘divine connections.’ In other words, pray about your circle of friends. Don’t just decide what social group you want to be part of and then try to get into it.

Instead, follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in choosing with whom you want to associate closely.

Pray: ‘Lord, I ask You to bring the right friends into my life. Give me wisdom to know whom to welcome into my circle of friends. Amen.'”

–Joyce Meyer in “The Confident Woman Devotional”




As a person who works from home and doesn’t get out much, it can get lonely at times, especially since my immediate family (daughters, son, sons-in-law, daughter-in-law, granddaughters, sisters and their families, and brother) and the majority of my long-time friends, all live out of state (I moved from New Hampshire to Maine about 14 years ago).


That’s why I’m thankful for the “circles of friends” God has drawn me to, in my various online communities, on Facebook and elsewhere. I appreciate the friendship, networking, sharing of personal and professional interests, and genuine support and compassion demonstrated by most members of these different circles of friends.
