In friendship...

you win some and you lose some.

Some people will just leave you hanging somewhere. Some people will totally ignore you if you've done something they don't like. Or if you are something they don't like. They will not confront you. They'll just throw you out of their lives without a warning. Some people are too honest to admit that they don't need you anymore. Some are just too nice to tell you that your beliefs suck. That you're not in tune to what the world believes in. Some people are just too proud to see that they also commit mistakes and for them, they're always right. Some people get hurt by the truth that you've shared with them and they just trash you out because they don't like hurting that much to know that they need to grow.

Different kinds of personalities.

No I did not experience all of these. I have heard some stories though from other people.

But you know what? We don't have to fret because our BEST FRIEND (GOD) will never leave us.

Something that I have learned today that I'd like to share through a text quote sent to me earlier...

"a person's most useful asset is not the head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, with an ear open to listen and a hand willing to help."

I hope that in your journey, you may find real friends who will never leave you along the way. First of all, I pray that you will be a real friend to every person you meet.

I received this email devotional today (June 16, 2009)...

A Perfect Friend

PROVERBS 18:24 RSV
24 There are friends who pretend to be friends, but there is a
friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Would you like to have a perfect friend?

A friend who loved you no matter what you did.

A friend who would always be there when you needed them.

A friend who knew you intimately yet still loved you.

A friend who always encouraged you and never put you down.

A friend who was smart but not conceited.

A friend who had no personal problems to distract them.

A friend who was powerful and famous, yet down-to-earth and
approachable.

A friend who is righteous yet merciful to others.

A friend who never makes a mistake.

A friend who enjoyed having a good time and sharing a laugh
with you.

A friend who had the knowledge and ability to help you with
everything.

A friend who is not too good to wash your feet or clean your
toilet, yet talented enough to be the best at everything.

A friend who puts your interests ahead of their own.

A friend who loves you more than you love yourself.

A friend who would be willing to die for you.

There is only one. His name is Jesus, and He wants to be your
friend.

"a person's most useful asset is not the head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, with an ear open to listen and a hand willing to help."

I like that. It's so true. And yes, the only one we have to think about is God. He will never forsake us. Thank you Father. Of course of the flesh and the worldly ways, we can still feel the sting of a wrong doing, slap in the face, a kick when you are down, but we get back up and say, "Forgive them Father, for they do not know." We forgive and pray for forgiveness. Great post Hon. I've so missed reading your posts and love coming here and getting filled!
