He doesn’t have to actually do anything; just knowing He’s there makes me feel special. He’s the one I run to when I’m weak. He’s the one I run to with my good news. He’s the one I vent to when I’m overwhelmed and rattled. I never feel like I’m taking too much of His time. He’s always there, with arms outstretched.
Oh, and He gives the BEST advice! Sometimes it’s hard to take, but I know He always has my best interest at heart. He’s really a big picture thinker and knows exactly how to put things into perspective. His insights are uncanny!
Patience is one of His strengths. I’m sure He must shake his head at me sometimes, though. There He is with His amazing wisdom, and there I am digging my heels in. It must be quite a sight to behold! But do you know what I love? I can argue with Him and He doesn’t hold it against me. In fact, I think He enjoys it. At least then we are heart to heart. I feel like He knows me better than I know myself. He sees me differently than anyone else ever has. He makes me want to make Him proud.
One of the things I really respect about Him is that He is so honest. He expects complete honesty from me, too. It’s like He can see right through me. There have been times when I haven’t been honest with Him. He just stares at me and waits for me to tell the truth. I can feel His loving, firm presence nudging me, encouraging me, forgiving me.
He wants more for me than I could ever imagine for myself! He actually has a plan to help me get there! If only I would follow His lead more often! I do trust Him completely. I guess I just like my own way too. The thing is, when we’re in sync, we are unstoppable! When I let Him take the wheel, we go places that I never even dreamed! When I humble myself to His plan, His wisdom, His character He shows me a freedom I’ve never known.
One of the greatest things about my best friend is that loving Him with my whole heart empowers me to love others the way He does. I can’t really explain it, but He makes me better at love. His goodness fills me up and overflows to those around me. I get to see people the way He does. He sees what’s true. I don’t have to pretend with Him. He knows I’m not perfect, but loves me anyway.
I know I can never be just like Him; He’s one of a kind, that’s for sure! I’d like you to meet Him. His name is God. He wants to be your best friend too!
