A Friend...

My mom testified at church a couple of weeks ago, and she shared something that I had NEVER heard before!!! It was soooo neat I just have to share it with you all!!!

She said that when we lived in New York, before we got in church, one of the things that prompted her to EVEN go to church at all, was that she was looking for a friend. She said that although there were people our family associated with, she didn't feel like she really had her own friend. She was hoping for someone that she could do stuff with her or just talk with on the phone! So when the Sis. Kathy, the lady across the street from us invited my mom to church, one of the things that prompted her to go was she thought..."Maybe if I go, I'll find a FRIEND!!!" She said that there were a lot of people that she met at that church that she enjoyed fellowship with, BUT she says that when she got the Holy Ghost, she got a friend that has NEVER left her side. We were only at that church for nine months before we moved to AZ, she left behind her aquantances at that church, BUT Jesus, came right along with her!!! Its been 25 years, and she says that Jesus is STILL the best friend she has ever had!!!

Are you looking for a friend?
 JESUS wants to be YOUR friend!!! GO TO JESUS!!!
Oh, What a friend we have in Jesus!

... a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
(Proverbs 18:24)
