God will be your forever friend!

Do you believe this?

I recall talking to man who lost his wife of 58 years, and as he talked about their wonderful life together, tears streamed down his face. He told me about all the things that were missing in his life now that she was gone. His loss was so acute that I knew it would be a long, long, time before he would heal. My heart hurt for him. It made me think about the friendships that are most precious to me. As I’ve found friendship with God, it’s been so wonderful that I realize I never, ever, want to lose this close, precious friendship.

I’ll do anything, and give up anyone—to keep God close!

God is my steadfast and perfect Friend. He never lies to me; He’s never stands me up; He doesn’t play mind games; He doesn’t put me off; He doesn’t play hard to get; He isn’t moody; He doesn’t talk ugly; and—the list of good things—is endless.

God is the perfect friend.

I rely upon God more than I can say. He listens to my silliest complaints. He allows me to freely speak my mind and I don’t have to worry about what He thinks because He already knows the deepest part of my heart. I don’t have to be ashamed of my desires because He loves this crazy girl He created. I can confess my greatest and most shameful weaknesses and sins to Him without a fear that it will diminish His love for me. I can cry for help without saying a word. He makes my toughest trials in life smaller.

God is my faithful love!

His Word says: “How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings. They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. Oh, continue your steadfast love to those who know you, and your righteousness to the upright of heart!” (Psalms‬ ‭36:7-10‬)

Once we learn to make God our closest friend, we don’t want to imagine living life without Him. The good news is that we don’t have to! God never grows old, dies, or leaves us–He is our forever friend!
