I read that there is a Friend that sticks closer than a brother.
And for that I am truly thankful.
Because we live in a very transient world.
Where people come and go.
The yearning is there.
To know and be known.
To feel safe and loved and valued.
To experience being cherished and like we matter to someone with skin on.
And if we are truly fortunate along the way, there will be those who we get to share life with.
The ups, the downs, the joys, the sorrows, the laughter, the tears.
The whole thing.
But one thing I know for sure.
Life changes. People move on, in one way or another.
And no one, no one can fill that huge, yawning, God-sized abyss that resides in our souls.
No one. Except Jesus.
He's the Friend who never forsakes. Never leaves. Doesn't change. Has only my best interests at heart. Sees the beginning from the end. And has the power to alter my every step.
The Forever Friend. The Living Saviour. The Lover of my soul ...
