The Names of God
What a Friend we have in Jesus!
He knows all my faults, yet He accepts me as I am. He sees all my weaknesses, yet He never gives up on me. I can trust Him to lead me all the way home.
To Him I confess every sin and failure. With Him I share all my thoughts and feelings, frustrations and fears, sorrows and joys. To Him I confide my deepest needs and longing. He always understands!
He listens to my heart as well as my words. He hears my thoughts as well as my prayers. He tells me the truth, even if it hurts. He really cares!
Jesus rejoices with me when I am happy in Him. When I am sad, He shares my grief. When I'm too tired to go on, He holds me up. When I lose my way, He takes my hand and guides me in His paths. My Friend is always there!
He tells me His thoughts and plans. In His love-letters to me -- they are all in my precious Bible -- He confides His deepest longing. He shares His joys as well as His sufferings. He shows me why He gave His life for me: so that He and I can be one for all eternity!
Because He joined me to Himself through the cross, His friends are my friends. His enemies are my enemies. His battles are my battles. And He always wins – even when I must share His wounds and bear some battle scars!
Every morning we plan our day together. All day long we walk and work together. We are inseparable!
My Friend is wise, patient, loving and kind. He is faithful, considerate, unchanging and pure. He is strong, dependable, loyal and true. He meets all my needs!
"This is my Beloved and this is my Friend!" Is He your Friend, too?
