His Twisted Sisters

About Us – Rebels for Christ

We are a close knit group of women that get together every morning for a time of prayer and coffee (and sometimes yummy breakfasts!), and each Sunday evening for Bible study. We come from different backgrounds and churches, but we are uniquely twisted together through our Savior, Jesus Christ. Like iron sharpens iron, we are like strands of cord twisted together – making us stronger. Each of us had a need when we first got together, needs which included friendship, fellowship, laughter, tears, hugs, support and wisdom, to name a few. God knew our needs and brought us together, and he continues to introduce us to newfound friends and Sisters in Christ.

  1. Friendship among women

    “The only way to have a friend is to be one.”
    — Ralph Waldo Emerson

    “A friend is someone who can see the truth and pain in you even when you are fooling everyone else.”

    Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow.
    Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead.
    Just walk beside me and be my friend.– Albert Camus

    We all need friends. When I say friends I mean people that you truly share yourself with, ones you don’t have to “wear masks” with, they take you as you are, they respect you enough to be totally honest with you and there is a level of trust that is second only to the trust you have with your spouse.

    If you have one good friend that you can tell anything to and share your heart with you can consider yourself blessed. If you have been blessed with more than one it’s because you have also been a good friend to them.

    It’s interesting to me the friends we women have during our lives:
    As children, if we’re so blessed, we have friends who we “play with” having sleep overs, sharing secrets, talking about boys.
    During high school and and college its more of the same, but unfortunately, often competition gets in the way and we forget how important it is to invest in true friends.
    Then we get married and often we allow our lives to get too busy with work and/or investing our whole lives into our kids .
    We can often forget to make time for building friendships and before we know it we have become isolated …If this happens to us ……Then when it’s time for the kids to go to college or move out on their own we will feel really isolated. This is how the “empty nest syndrome” really hits. We wake up and look around and everything we’ve invested our life in, namely our kids, is going on somewhere, without us!
    Then we have to reevaluate our life and hopefully we will find new outlets for ourselves, otherwise we can become very bitter and sad.
    But there is a solution to these problems: Pray to God that He send a new purpose and He will give us what we need. Invest in others and God will send friends to be there during challenging times of life. It’s never too late to become a friend.

    Friends encourage each other, they tell the truth in love, they listen, they will sit in silence with you and not be uncomfortable, they spend time investing in each others lives, they help each other do things that one can’t do alone.

    I have been truly blessed with the friends God has placed in my life. I know that I can call on any one of them and they would be there in a time of need, that they will always be honest with me. I know each one is special, gifted and talented in so many things and my life is richer for having them in it.

    We women need each other to “talk” things trough with; To talk about some thing doesn’t always mean it needs to be fixed – sometimes it just needs to be talked out, then we feel better.

    To all my friends, you know who you are – Thank you for loving me even when I’m not lovely and being who you are. Each of you is special in your own way, God sent you to me to up lift me when I needed it and for me to be there for you when you needed it too.

    Thank you Lord for giving me such great friends, my life wouldn’t be the same without them.

  2. I could not have said it better, Retta! We are all on a spiritual journey together…. learning from one another the things He has shown us. I am so thankful to Him for placing these women in my path of this season of my life. It is a joy to call you all my friends just as Jesus calls us His friends. I pray for each of you every day.
    I love ya’ll so much!
