A true friend. There is nothing like a true friend. One who has seen me in times of beauty and ugliness. A true confidante. One who has my back no matter what. One who will pray for me in times of heartache and times of healing. Praying often, encouraging often – without judgement or pride. This friend loves me through trials and temptations. Intercedes for me when I am lonely and desperate for more of God, but cannot seem to get there alone.
This friend loves me so much, they will push through with me in prayer. They encourage and listen and offer love. They suggest no condemnation. They give no advice unless I ask. Just love. Thank you Lord for friends who are the hands and feet of Jesus ministering to one another.
I am thankful for friends just like this.
Thank you God, that You have placed faithful friends in my life. Friends here in Hawai’i and friendships that span the ocean. Help me to be that kind of friend. You are so good to keep our hearts connected through the power and love of Your Holy Spirit.
