Oh, What a Friend! | Thursday | May 2

A friend loves at all times…

–Proverbs 17:17 NIV

A best friend is someone you never forget and always treasure in your heart. This special friend is the one who knows all your secrets, knows all your thoughts, and knows all your painful and joyful moments.

However, over time, you may notice that something has happened in that friendship. The passion and closeness is gone. It could be a result of your own feelings or that of your friend. Either way, it can leave a feeling of hurt and abandonment.

There is one Person who will never cause you this hurt, though. He is the very best Friend you can have. He is by your side at every moment; He knows and understands your every weakness. This Friend holds your hand and walks you through the deepest valleys. You are beautiful in His eyes—even on your worst day. He fights your every battle and soothes your every wound. Best of all, there is nothing you can do to ever take away the passion, love, and devotion He has for you.

This very best Friend is Jesus. He is the light of the world and will lead you through the darkest moments of your life. He is the beacon who will lead you through the raging, roaring storms of life. Come to Jesus and embrace your new Friend. He will love you with an everlasting love.

Prayer Focus

  • Lord, help me to present You to the world as I see Your love displayed within my own life.
  • Thank You, Jesus, for loving me no matter what! Thank You for being the Friend I can always count on to support me, listen to me, and guide me!
