“A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” – Proverbs 18:24 NIV
I’ve been lucky in life in the friendship department. Unfortunately, I’m not one that makes friends incredibly easily. I’m shy, awkward, nervous, and just generally not outgoing. Fortunately, I have a couple friends that have stuck by my side through the years and I have no idea what I would do without them.
Yesterday two of my close friends have told me that they are going through a rough time. I don’t know all of the details, but I do know that they need prayers and maybe an ear to listen to their struggle. I was also not blessed with the gift of saying the right thing. My past attempts of comforting have often been met with confused stares and even with my heart in the right place, my mind seems to mess things up.
To these two friends, and I think that you know who you are, I want to let you know that I’m here. Whenever, wherever, always here. I may not say or do the right thing, but I will try. It won’t hurt my feelings if you are incredibly specific in your needs because I know that I suck at this. I love you both very much. I know that you would do the same for me in a heartbeat and that means the world to me.
