They come in all sorts of forms... We make new friends, lose friends, become distant from other friends. It's life.
I've had a lot of friends go separate directions in life, and I've grown apart from them. I've also made new friends, some whom I have grown quite close to. But friendships are always changing.
People grow up. People change. People get into relationships. People...are people.
Sometimes it's really hard to lose a friend or to become slowly distant... sometimes it's easy to feel like there's no one you can really depend on. Someone who WON'T leave, who will NEVER fail you, who will ALWAYS be there for you...
Is it impossible to find someone like that?
No one on this earth can guarantee to be that person for you.
But there is someone who can.
Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior.
He is the same. Yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
He is ALWAYS there.
He is ALWAYS faithful.
He is ALWAYS watching over me.
He will never leave me.
Even when I 'spit in His face' even when I continually stray away from the path of His will...He ALWAYS forgives.
Wow. I mean WOW. Even though I knew what I was going to write about when I first started this post, even as I right...I'm just...amazed. Really and truly amazed and awed and humbled and ...yea. :D
Friends come, friends go... but God will never leave me nor forsake me.
The day I turned from my sins and accepted Christ into my life, was the best day of my life. Forever changed. Forever in love with an unchanging God! :D :D :D
"I the Lord do not change..." (Malachi 3:6)
It's all too easy to forget how faithful God is... it's easy to feel we've hit the end of our rope and we're alone in our own little world. Like we've hit rock bottom and there's not way out. But God is also faithful in reminding us, continually, of His faithfulness...how awesome is that?!?!
And with that, I shall sleep tonight with a grin on my face because I KNOW I have the God of yesterday, today and forever in my heart. WH00T! :D
