Friends…5-Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday

FRIEND: what is a friend? 

There are so many types of friends, and the ones that are dearest, are the ones who stop to listen when the day is rough, when tomorrow seems to never come, or when the water rushing over you seems to drown you. Friends take the time out of their day to just let you know they care, maybe a text, an email, a visit with a cup of coffee from the local coffee shop. Best friends are those who take time to listen to the rough moments, rejoice in the blessings of life, but most of all when you need them the most, they are right there waiting for you.

Among all the best friends that a person could ever have there is only one Friend that will never leave, never gossip about, never laugh when you are crying. 
Jesus, the Friend of all friends, stands by your side, listening waiting and loving you.

"What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer! O what peace we often forfeit,O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer." Joseph M. Scriven

Friend of friends, He is waiting for you and loves you as only the "Bestest" best friend can.

  1. This was the final thought that closed my 5 minutes. As I thought and mused on the beautiful friends I have, I was drawn to what a lousy friend I am… but what a true friend Jesus is.
