A true friend knows the song in your heart and sings it to you during hard times, or when memory fails. – Anon
During David’s waiting period to ascend to the throne, the king’s own son Jonathan was his closest friend and ally. Hmm!
The familiar refrain “when I am sad He makes me glad, He’s my friend,” that we sing about Jesus is a powerful reminder of what true friendship is. He reminds us of God's love for us and our purpose, and steadfastly tries to keep us on point. It is actually a value judgment we should use to measure those we allow into our sphere of friendship. God places those in our life that can help us keep our heart song true, pure, and uncluttered by other tunes or melodies (worldliness). When we want to go outside of the parameters God sets for friendship and fellowship (righteousness), we risk having our heart song broken, interrupted or even changed, falling away from our purpose and true character. Here's hoping your melody is still inspiringto you.
“It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” – Genesis 2:18
