Jesus by his disciples was referred as a friend that would stick closer than a brother. That bond must truly be momentous because the bond between siblings is as strong as steel fortified many times over.
Several years back, I had a friend to truly show me what the nature of friendship is. I learned the devastating truth about things I thought knew to be true. There were no words that she could say.
She came into my room, sat on my bed and cried for hours in her lap. When I gathered myself, she opened her hand and gave me a pendant on the back that read Joshua 1:9. ” Have not commanded you be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the Lord God will be with you wherever you go.”
She told me to keep it until I knew to trust and no longer fear. I remember that night every time I am afraid or don’t know what to do.
You see when there is nothing left to give, a true friend gives you God. Believe me, there is no greater gift. Give him freely. Have an amazing day.
