Blessed by Friends

I heard a poem Wednesday night at my roommate Courtney's Wedding Shower that almost brought me to tears. The spoken words made me instantly think of certain people in my life. God is truly amazing in so many ways and I truly believe he is looking out for me.

Now after two years of fallen friendships and hurtful endings, I am finally falling into a place of security. I know who my TRUE friends are and the people who love me for me. I know who I can call at 2am to tell them what is on my mind. The ones who know how to console me and give me advice. Or someone who can make me laugh just by being themselves and the friend who is always up for an adventure no matter what. My friends are the people who motivate me, support me and remind me of who I am inside.It is so important to surround yourself with people who enrich your life instead of those who try to knock you down.

I am truly blessed to have the friends I do in my life and I continue to be more thankful each day. This poem is dedicated to the friends who make my life that much more rich and full and are my everyday blessings. 

I prayed for you before we met,not knowing who you'd be.
I asked the Lord to send a friend.
One chosen just for me.

I asked that they'd be Godly,
with wisdom of His ways.
A friend to help and guide me
in the troubles of these days.

So often in life, we need someone
to listen while we talk.
Someone who will not condemn or judge,
but encourage us as we walk.

The narrow road we choose to follow
may sometimes make us stumble,
but to have a friend to catch our fall,
teaches us to be humble.

When I asked the Lord to send a friend,
though many came and went,
He gave much more than I ever asked,
for you are the friend He sent.
