“Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.”
Thus we can sing: What a friend we have in Jesus” We all have a friend in Jesus when we met Him we knew He would be our friend for all eternity. He never tires of our constantly talking to Him throughout the day. This morning as I was dragged myself out of bed to a new day by a persistent barking dog, I thought does Jesus get tired of us with all our issues we verbally deluge Him with day after day? Does it sound like my barking dog does to me?
Just like our furry pets whom we love regardless of their barking, I know Jesus loves us more, so much that He laid down His life for each one of us. He calls us friends. He loves to talk with us, he loves us just the way we our, and walks through both our challenges and joys of each day. Hold fast to Him!!!. He has already lifted us up at Calvary, and He is there to see us through the gates, and talk to us on the right side of heaven!
So hit the trial everyday with the enthusiastic, playful dog who is excited to be walking with you. Link arms and hold fast to Jesus as you talk and share how much you love Him, how much He has done in your and others lives, and your prayers and concerns you would like to put in His lap for the day. Listen as He speaks to you and shares something from His textbook for our lives with Him.
What a friend who always keeps His promises. Hold tightly, stay on your walking path of life with Him. Hold fast!
