Jesus was friends with many people and in our quest to be more like Him, we share our life with friends also.
There are many variations of the bible; versions such as King James or the Living Bible, Good News, etc., but until today I had never heard of The Message. I love how it breaks down these verses in Job 29:3-5
Job now resumed his response: “Oh, how I long for the good old days, when God took such very good care of me. He always held a lamp before me and I walked through the dark by its light. Oh, how I miss those golden years when God’s friendship graced my home, When the Mighty One was still by my side and my children were all around me, When everything was going my way, and nothing seemed too difficult.
What a beautiful definition of friendship with God.
Today I spoke with a friend who is a snowbird in Texas. We try and talk once a week now, but oftentimes it’s less often. I miss seeing her whenever I want, but I know she is just a call away.
Maybe we feel that way sometimes with God. We haven’t been studying His word, or spending time in prayer, worship or in solitude. He too, is just a call away, He is always here, we just have to ask, cry out or pray. Sometimes all three!
May you be blessed this week, finding time with a good friend and with the best friend; Jesus.
