Without YOU LORD JESUS where would I be? YOU have not forsaken me even when I don't deserve YOUR love....who else loves me with that kind of unfailing love? There are those who remain your friends throughout turmoil and difficulty....somehow they are the ones you least expect! What a surprise! GOD in HIS mercy and grace does reveal your true friends in hardship...it can be painful yet it is also is a needful thing. In the end it is good to see how GOD does not forsake you! Those who would be your true friends will love you and encourage you without patronizing or judgemental attitudes. True friends love you with all your imperfections...they do not play the "I Know Better" game! GOD alone is our Judge...and none of us are qualified to throw stones. What a blessing TRUE friends are! Thank YOU LORD!

Oh, how often do we find disappointment and heartache in this world? Friends hurt us unknowingly...some knowingly. Maybe they are going through disappointment and hurt themselves? This life is filled with pain and yet when we turn to JESUS we have all the sweetness we need! We can dive right into HIS arms and find refreshment in HIS stength and love. HIS is a love of truth and honesty. HIS is a love of hope and peace. HIS is a love of faithfulness. What saddens me is when we hurt each other, either by accident or on purpose for any and all kinds of reasons! I am thankful for the unfailing love of JESUS CHRIST. HE who will never leave us or forsake us. HE who knows of the plans HE has for us and it is not to harm us ,but for a good purpose. Let us look straight into a face of love and let HIM wash away our hurts so we can love others. When we show CHRIST to others they experience healing to their hurting hearts and souls. I am thankful to a SAVIOR who allows me to come to HIM again and again for the healing I need. Let us look into a face of pure unfailing love and bask in HIM , the ONE who loves us so much! Then let us share HIM with others!
