Jules has asked the entire internet “Who’s Your Best Friend” I think this is a great question, and I’ve been chewing on what to say since she posted late last night. I could write volumes about my best friend, because He is just so amazing.
My Best Friend is very wealthy. There is nothing He doesn’t own. He uses his wealth to send me gifts, all the time. He sends material things that I need, and a lot of what I want as well. He also sends less tangible things, gifts of laughter and love and affirmation.
My Best Friend is quite a writer, too. He wrote me an incredible love letter, and I like to read it over and over. Sometimes I forget to look at it, but whenever I need wise counsel, I just pull that letter out and His great advice is in there. When I need comfort, that’s in His letter as well. It’s like a written buffet, with one delightful dish after another all designed to feed my soul.
My Best Friend is patient with me. I often do things that I know grieve Him, and He forgives me over and over again. He loves to talk to me, and even when I get rushed and harried and forget our appointments, He still loves me, and waits eagerly for me to come spend time with Him.
My Best Friend is always thinking of me. I’ve been on His mind since the beginning of time. From before I was born, He loved me so much that He’d be willing to die for me. And then He did. His name is Jesus, and He would love to be Your Best Friend, too.
