Introducing: My Best Friend
I want to introduce you to my best friend. When I first met him in 1984, I didn’t really know Him. I had heard of His name and had heard about Him, but I had never really given much thought to getting to know Him or becoming His friend, as my focus at the time was just on being obedient to His Father. His Father was often in my thoughts and at various times I wished I could see or speak to Him as I really admired Him.
When I first met my now best friend, He said even though I never knew Him, He had always known me and I was quite surprised to find out who He really was and all that He had done for me. It was then, in 1984, that I decided I wanted to get to know Him and become His friend.
Now, many years later I can truly say He is my best friend for He is always near to me. He prays for me and He gives me strength, wisdom and hope. If I am feeling down, He picks me up. If I am feeling sick, His touch heals me. If I am unsure about what to say or do, I can ask Him and He always gives me the best advice for the time. If I am scared, He comforts me and gives me a peace that surpasses all understanding. Anytime or anyplace I can call upon Him for help and He will answer. He is the best friend a person could ever ask for!
Plus, when He and I became best friends, I received a bonus , for I found I had gained the close personal relationship with His Father that I had always desired.
