We All Need Forever Friends


Sometimes, I wonder if there is something seriously wrong with me. I don’t have any close friends. Sure, I have plenty of friends online. But it is hard to find a “real life”, forever friend.

One who understands my heart, knows my uglies, and still thinks I’m beautiful. A friend who wants more than the casual online connection, but seeks a deep heart to heart bonding. She isn’t afraid to talk about her issues because she knows I have have them too. She is honest about her fears and disappointments. So I know I’m not alone with mine.

A forever friend listens to hear my heart, not necessarily to offer advice. She encourages me with gentleness and isn’t easily offended because she trusts my heart towards her. She forgives much because she has been forgiven much. She means what she says and says what she means.
We all need at least one forever friend. I have a few across the miles, but they are a rare find. Like the most precious jewels in all the earth, except they can’t be bought. At any price.

Proverbs 20:8 says, “As iron sharpens iron, so friends sharpen one another.”

I am always looking for a forever friend to sharpen me. So I can be a useful tool in the hands of God and do life changing work in his world.
