Do you have a friend or friends who you consider to be faithful?
Unfortunately for many, finding a single faithful friend can be something they will never experience, and that I find is very sad. It’s wonderful when you have someone who you can tell anything to, and talk about anything with and know not only that they will not judge you, but will not pass on anything you have told them to anything else.
For some their faithful friend maybe someone they have known for many years, possibly since childhood. For others it maybe someone the met just a few years ago and instantly “clicked”. For some it maybe someone they’ve known for a while but through a particular situation you’ve found you have so much in common and have subsequently become good friends. Then there are those for whom their closest and most faithful friend is their partner.
It’s great when your best friend is also your partner, after all why would you want to spend your life/commit your life to someone who you’re not friends with!
However great your friendships are, there is one person who we can all rely on to be faithful at all times, and that is Jesus. Do you consider Him to be your friend?
If you don’t consider Jesus to be your friend, why not give him a go, talk to Him…He will listen and He will be there for you at all times.
Faithful Friend by Twila Paris
Everyone knows you as a man of honor
I am glad to know you simply as a friend
You’ve always taken time to be my brother
And I’ll be standing by you in the end
But I will never put you on a pedestal
I thank the Lord for everything you do
I’ll be there to pray for you and for the ones you love
I believe that He will finish all he started in you.
I will be an open door that you can count on
Anywhere you are, anywhere you’ve been
I will be an honest heart you can depend on
I will be a faithful friend
I am one of many whose path has been made clear
By the light you’ve carried faithfully as a warrior and a child
God has used you greatly to encourage and inspire
And you’ve remained a true friend all the while
So I will never put you on a pedestal
Cause we both know all the glory is the Lord’s
But I’ll be there to pray that He will keep you by his grace
And I always will remind you to be seeking His face
Should there ever come a time to cry
I will weep with you
And every single time you win
I’m celebrating too
Oh, I will celebrate with you
