In life, we lose friends. They leave, they move, we lose contact....
except for one very special Friend... because...
What a Friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and grieves to bear
And what a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer....
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer
- Joseph M. Scriven
But there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
- Proverbs 18:24b
Even if our friends leave, or desert/ignore us, there's a Friend that will never leave our side.
He is the one who is always there, always willing to listen, and is always there to comfort us.
I really don't know how many times I've just poured out everything on my mind and heart to Jesus, and He comforts me. The song above, 'What a Friend We Have in Jesus' is so true - can we find anyone as faithful? Who will share our sorrows? He knows us better than anyone else in the whole universe - because He created us!
Jesus knows our weaknesses, our hopes, our dreams, our sorrows, our thoughts..
He is our best friend - forever!
True friends are hard to find - True Friends (the poem)
They are a blessing, though! Friends that encourage us, and point us to Christ are true friends.
If ever you have no one to talk to, no one to listen to you, no one to share your burdens...
talk to Jesus - He always listens!
To God be the Glory!
