Faith WOD

READ:  Proverbs 18

REFLECT:  On what basis can we choose good friends?

RESPONDList the top 3 individuals you turn to when you encounter defeat in your life.

*Share your thoughts on Comments.

"A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother."


  1. The individuals that I turn to when things get difficult are my parents and my pastor. They are often able to share their wisdom and advice when I am worried.

  2. When I face defeat I turn to God, my parents and my wife for support, encouragement, love and guidance. I realized I am blessed to have these people and others in my life.

  3. My wife, my uncle, and a couple of close friends...I turn to them...of course, I turn to God in prayer and His word...that is when I like the song "Nearer My God To Thee" and "Hear Me When I Call"

  4. My parents, my brothers, and my wife. Three things that will always be with me, and the amount of support they've shown me through the beginning of my military career is more than I could ever ask. There have been so many times where I've been broken, and they've raised me back up through giving me scripture and keeping my faith strong. Thank you Coach, first Faith WOD.

  5. My higher power answers my calls but in the flesh I see God in my mentors and sponsors, Jamie, Tim T and Bill W. These three men give to me freely so that I can defeat my demons and overcome defeats. Parents are supportive but sometimes I go elsewhere for advice on deeply personal concerns.

    Thanks for the readings. This is my first time on the site...will be back.
