I have a friend that sticks closer than a brother, and his name is Jesus. Solomon spoke a word in Proverbs 17:17, saying, "A friend loves at all times." Talking about a friend that sticks closer than a brother and a friend that loves at all times, I had biological brothers and sisters, but none of them were in my life. I was the only one out of eight that was not in the home with them. On September 25, 1975, when I found my way to the Cross, Jesus told me, "I will never leave you, nor will I forsake you. I'm going to be with always." On June 19, 2021, I was at my church that Saturday morning, crying and praying. I felt so all alone. I was under such heavy burdens. I felt like what the prophet Isaiah said, "When the enemy shall come in like a flood." As I was crying, talking to the Lord, telling him, "I feel so all alone. I don't have anybody," I heard Jesus say unto me, "I am your friend that sticks closer than a brother." Jesus told me, "Begin writing the book, and title it I Have a Friend That Sticks Closer than a Brother, His Name Is Jesus."
just chatted with an old friend where it seems that we had been friends forever. It was very good to talk to him. The Bible does say we have a friend that sticks closer than a brother—His name is Jesus Christ! David and Jonathan had a ...

Joy Comes in the Mourning presents an authentic and practical devotion-style book intended to speak to a topic that, unfortunately, everyone must encounter in their lives—grieving loss. This collection is unusual in that it is autobiographical. Author Helene Marie Cruz shares both her experiences of loss and those of many in her family and close circle of friends, all of whom have lost loved ones. The testimonies vary in terms of the types of losses and the situations before and after the mourning, but the common theme is that God, the Father; Jesus, the Son; and the Holy Spirit, the Counselor, were present somewhere during these journeys of grief. Cruz encourages but also evangelizes, eliciting the Holy Spirit to pull you toward either knowing the Savior for the first time or calling upon Him for healing, grace, peace, and the joy that the Psalmist David speaks of in the healing psalm of promise, Psalm 30:5—“weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” Uplifting and encouraging, this collection of testimonies invites you to understand and ultimately live the promise offered by God of the joy that follows grief.
A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:10, 24 Calling upon God's name can bring strength. Coming before God in the name of Christ gives us access to God.

Jesus gave answers to the temptations of Satan beginning with the declaration: "It is written." The Word of God is a storehouse of answers to combat the woes of this life. It is also a treasure chest of promises and hopes for the saints of God. It has a wealth of remedies for those who have no hope and for those trodden down with the terminal disease of sin. The Lord Jesus Christ said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (Jn. 14:6) Man desperately searches the world over in quest of youth, longer life, and happiness of life. Yet, right before his eyes is the very treasure map that unveils the well of living water springing up unto everlasting life and the fountain of eternal grace flowing from Immanuel's veins. Within its pages the Holy Comforter has written wondrous guides through the straight and narrow way that begins at the foot of the old rugged cross. He leads the seeker securely in hand over the lofty heights of pure truth; and when the weary traveler is faint with distressing thirst, the Spirit and Bride say, "Come drink of the water of life freely, and you shall find rest for your soul and life more abundantly." These single page lessons are set forth only as brief simple studies of various topics of the Scriptures. They are not designed as theological discourses, or the settling of doctrinal issues. These are mere glimpses through the windows of the Word of God. They are thought provokers, docks for launching out into the deep, and stimuli for discussion of the truths of the Holy Scriptures. They are purposely designed for church bulletins, devotions, and study starters.

Throughout her life, the homespun advice of Florence's mother and grandmother has guided and sustained her. Florence may not have always followed it, but she always found out they were right in the end. As she meditates on the wisdom they offered her and tells her own story of redemption, Florence pays homage to the two women that most influenced her life. Their down-to-earth approach is perfectly captured in the reflections on their lives and the timeless wisdom that they passed on. These strong women faced slavery, racism, gender discrimination, and many other hindrances; however, they overcame powerfully, and their stories transcend those barriers of resistance. Their love for family and neighbor and their steadfast adherence to core values continues to be an inspiration. Remember What I Told You will help you recall the wisdom that you've gleaned from your own family as you learn from these amazing women. 'After having read the manuscript a second time, I found myself perusing the story, amazed at how each of the characters' lives are strangely entwined with the others and how they evolve and blend into the flow of the main plot, which is to encourage family values that permeate through the social fabric of our lives and society.' Rev. Paul R. Williams (UK/Afro-Caribbean Historian and Media Journalist) '[Flo's] family stories and examples in this book are truly remarkable. They give you a clear picture of the Bible scriptures that she is referencing. Remember What I Told You is real down-home stuff and a great inspiration! I encourage everyone to read it. It's appealing to both young and old.' S. Norwood Thornton (Entrepreneur/Entertainer)
