You Call Me Friend

Tim Hugging Jesus


How can this be? A love so sweet!
When, Face to face,
We still have yet to meet

You know my every way
Each thought,
Before my heart can pray

You travel in Spirit with me as I go
Down paths far from the straight and narrow

You bring me strength when I am weak
Guiding me to refreshing waters
Of a gently flowing creek

I know I don't deserve this bond
Yet, there You always are
To let me lean upon

With Your Presence ever near
In this life, there is no fear

Yours is a gentle Voice of reason
I've learned to faithfully trust
No matter what the season

You are this and more to me
Your Love has set me free

I guess,
Now is not the time
To know the reasons why

Though I fail
To fully comprehend
I choose instead to just accept

By simply being You
You choose to call me Friend!

*******************************************

This came as I thought of all the many dear people I have met through FW over the years and now call my friends! Most of you I have not yet met face to face, but without a doubt know you call me friend because we know each other heart to heart. Isn't that how it is with Christ? Be blessed my friends :)

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Very lovely read. Your writings always touch my heart deeply. Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to read mine as it has been a long time. I have been through a lot while away from FW but God is good and always faithful to His promise. He never ceases to put a smile on my face. Love you. Hugs

Thanks Jody...I am happy to be called your friend. And you are a friend to me as well; although I haven't had much time to be on the computer lately, I still think about the many friends I have...God bless you. Helen

Heart 2 heart friendships are indeed ones that help us to understand, in part, the beauty of our Lord's heart. I thought of St. John 15 when I read your title. Lots of love. Blessed to be part of your friendship circle. J
