Godly friends…

“I was wrong, everybody needs someone, to hold on

Take my hand, I’ve been a lonesome man, took a while to understand

There’s some things we can’t live without,

A man’s so prone to doubt,

Faithful are the wounds from friends.

So give it just a little time,

Share some bread and wine

Weave your heart into mine,

My friend

Walls fall down, where there’s a peaceful sound, lonely souls hang around

Don’t be shy, there’s nothing left to hide,

Come on let’s talk a while

Of the places we left behind,

No longer yours and mine

But we could build a good thing here too

So give it just a little time,

Share bread and wine

Weave your heart into mine,

If I fall, I fall alone, but two can help to bear the load

A threefold chord is hard to break

All I have I give to you if you will share your sorrows too,

Then joy will be the crown upon our heads

My friend” (Bread & Wine by Josh Garrels)

Proverbs 17:17 sums it up, “A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.”  I am thankful to God that I have this in my life right now.  God’s providence and grace are way more than I deserve, but He gives it freely to me.  I am truly thankful for the blessings of family and friends in my life.

I wanted to share a Josh Garrels song (Farther Along recorded at Calvin College, 2012) that is one of the many sources of encouragement to me.  My prayer is that it can be a source of encouragement for you too.  God’s unending peace to you this day.
