Friendship is one of the sweetest joys of life.  Many might have failed beneath the bitterness of their trial had they not found a friend. –Spurgeon

A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24

In our deepest darkest valleys of life God has provided Someone to walk with us. Though those days may be long, He has given us His counsel to be followed. When we recognize His hand in the mist of those trials it is then we can stand up, stand tall, and walk with Him who is walking right along with us…carrying us most, if not all of the way!

I am reminded this morning, “Jesus knows all about our struggles;   He will guide ’til the day is done: There’s not a Friend like the lowly Jesus: No, not one! no, not one!!” Do you consider Him as your friend?
