A Friend in Need is a Friend Indeed

Updated on February 19, 2015
Source

When I needed a friend, and I couldn't find one,

God gently told me to believe in His Son,

Take all your cares, and cash them all in,

In return you are redeemed from your sin,

Believe in Jesus Christ my only begotten Son

In whom I am well pleased with above every one,

Hear Him through My Word to you,

He will provide all you need to make it through,

My grace is sufficient in all that you do,

His strength is made perfect in you,

My love drew you and still draws you now

Your heart and soul to Me you must bow

His blood is the cleansing flow and power,

My Spirit will purge you every second to the hour

A friend who sticks closer than any sister or brother

I choose You Jesus more than any other,

Heavenly Father, thank You for the opportunity

To choose Your only Son,

He is exalted high above every one.

*If you don't know, let me be the first to tell you.....If you ever need a friend that sticks closer than any brother....I recommend Jesus because He is that kind of friend.*

      Words of truth , how beautifully expressed,

      Reference Bible

      Joh 15:13No one has love greater than this, that someone should surrender his soul in behalf of his friends.

      Jesus will always be the greatest friend to many he paid a price for, and we can show him how we appreciate his friendship by continuing to follow his example in love and the doing of good and sharing gifts with in our inner beings.

      thank you for your wonderful hub.

      Hi Faith Reaper: I greet you in the name of Jesus. I hope all is well with you and your family. This is one of those poems which was buried in my heart. It was inspired over 25 years ago and it resurfaced yesterday. God's love is soooo powerful!

      Expressed in your own inimitable style with comforting words Mabel.

      Amen sister!

      So many people in need of a true friend these days, and those roots are so difficult to find this side of the celestial vault with people, but as you've so eloquently relayed, He's the best there is and always there.

      Thank you.
