My Friend

October 2, 2015

Here is a poem that I wrote:

    My friend is a special person
    Who accepts me the way I am.

    My friend can see who I can be.
    My friend laughs and cries with me.

    My friend is always honest,
    Even though the words spoken hurt me at times.

    My friend listens patiently to all my problems
    And does not give in to any of my lies.

    My friend is forgiving and understanding
    And adds a touch of love in everything I try.

    My friend is there when I am in need.

    Jesus, my friend, is that beautiful flower that
    Never fades away
    And I know I'll always treasure our friendship
    From day to passing day.

Psalm 25:14 – The Lord is a friend to those who fear him. He teaches them his covenant. (NLT)

Proverbs 27:6 – Wounds from a sincere friend are better than many kisses from an enemy. (NLT)

Revelation 3:20 – Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. (NLT)

Dear reader, you may be going through a hard time right now. You may feel that you are all alone and think that no one understands you or is listening to you. Remember, there is someone who is closer to you than any other friend; His name is Jesus. He is the One Who understands what you are going through. All you have to do is talk to Him. He will listen.

Prayer: Dear Jesus, thank You for being our closest friend. You understand each one of us and see what is in our hearts. You comfort us in our deepest sorrow and forgive us whatever we have done. Thank You. Amen.

    Dear Rosie:
    Well, you’ve done it again. You got right to the heart of the matter for me and I thank you. God bless you dear Rosie.


    Hi Rosie,
    What a beautiful poem! Jesus has been my best friend as far back as I can remember but I could never have put it in those words!!
    God bless you today and always!


    Thank you very much for today’s devotional. I need this reassuring blessing every day.

    Thanks Rosemary for your timely devotion. I’ll be doing a children’s story about BEST FRIENDS. And this ties in perfectly with it. I would like to use it and for sure I will give you the credit.
    Thanks again.


    Rosemary,
    God works through His people.
    Your reflection was JUST what I needed to read.
    Thank you for what you do. If ever you feel discouraged, not knowing if you are really making a difference,
    SAVE THIS EMAIL.
    God bless you,

    Dear Rosy,
    Thank you especially for your prayer and for the following:
    Dear reader, you may be going through a hard time right now. You may feel that you are all alone and think that no one understands you or is listening to you.

    And thank you for your poem.
    I pray for God’s blessings in all you do to make the way of our Lord’s free and loving grace known.


    HI Rosy,
    I kind of feel that I know you.
    Yes, He is the friend that sticks closer than a brother. I have just been writing about that so your devotional fits in perfectly for me.
