He Is a Friend

In many troubles in my life,
I’ve searched the world for friends.
And every time I stumbled harder,
I’d see I was alone again.
But it seems I’ve seen the truth
Of what a friend should be,
And with the things it takes to be,
Only God is a friend to me.
Only Jesus can erase the pain
And tell you what’s right for you.
It’s only God that can know your heart.
Only He can see you through.
Many times before I thought
I would die alone in the end.
But when I turned to God for help.
I saw that He is a friend.

PS. I love You, God!
PSS. So glad gave me a new outlook on friendship, and many blessed souls in Christ to call a friend… especially Jesus! What a Friend We Have in Jesus ❤

God Grants… And Then

God grants a heart

And then permits a love.

But before it’s allowed to be,

It must be given up.

God grants a wish

And then a kiss is given.

But before it can be remembered,

It must never be lived.

God grants a man

And then woman has companionship.

But before there can be intimacy,

They can not even taste a lip.

God grants wisdom

And then love as a sweet reward.

But before it can be a paradise,

It has to be utterly destroyed.

Being Alone Is Not Good

Being alone is not good
Even in God’s eyes.
He knows the soul needs company
To help the days go by.
There are moments we are to seek
And spend alone with God.
Some daily and some whenever
He calls us to come apart.
But even then there will be a time
When we are to fellowship again,
Whether it be with others
Or going home to Him in our end.

Content Being Just Yours

Many times I have leaned on a shoulder
of someone giving me courage to be bolder.
Many times I have wept and cried
to someone staying so close by my side.
Cheer and excitement, joy and pleasure,
I have shared with someone I treasure.
Yet through the years of trying love,
you sent me something from you above.
Contentment that life is just you and me.
The best relationship ever has set me free.
Blessed with singleness, I am set aside.
I am to be no one else’s bride.
All my gain from companionship
has always been your sweet fellowship.
Strengthening me. Strengthening my day.
You’ve been there to encourage me all the way.
No other strength could be so giving.
Being just yours makes life worth living.
