A friend in Him

In one of my bloghoppings, I came across this blog containing poems written by his mom. It struck me deep, and I want to share it with you.

True Friend
Alice M. Scott (August 13, 1988)

Though you search the whole world over,
Truer friend you’ll never find
Than the one whose name is Jesus,
Who is loving, who is kind.

He will never ever leave you
Or forsake you, as He said.
He will wash you white as snow
Though your sins are scarlet, red.

He will shelter and protect you
From the pain of Satan’s dart.
He will give you strength and courage
When he comes into your heart.

What you need to do is trust Him.
When he knocks, let Him come in.
By His death for you He offers
Full forgiveness for your sin.

With your eyes you will not see Him
While on earth you daily roam,
But you’ll go one day to heaven
And you'll see Him there, at Home.

I truly find solace with the thought that we have Someone who loves us so much despite our sinful behaviors, always there by our side, the truest among our true friends, gave up His own life for our sake. Most of all, the assurance that one day, we will be with Him eternally.

What a perfect example of love.
