My Best Friend

Started from the bottom

Now I’m here

Ain’t nothing I did

Just the God that I fear

 

Saved me when I was twelve

Embraced me with open arms

Changed my entire household

Silencing my spiritual alarms

 

Like a flood, pouring in His love

Bringing our spiritual pain to an end

Didn’t erase all my problems

But took them on for me – my best friend

 

Just in time for my teenage years

I was a quiet, short, nerd

Picked on, laughed at,

But my tears every night He heard

 

Committed to saving myself for marriage

Was the dumbest thing to my peers back then

But thanks to His strength

I remained dedicated – my best friend

 

Senior year finally came

Couldn’t wait to change scenes

Graduated valedictorian, yet went to a Bible college

To fulfill my own personal dreams

 

Another big mistake – or so they said

“you could be a doctor, lawyer, anything in life,

Why in the world would you get a biblical degree,

Graduate, and go on to become a preacher’s wife?”

Disappointment

God doesn’t disappoint us, people and circumstances do.  Then we turn around and blame God.  God is the one constant in this life.  His Word tells us who He is and He never once fails to be exactly who His Word says He is.  Unlike God, none of us have the capacity to be perfect unfailing creatures.  I’m learning to digest and embrace this fact.  In doing so, I am more understanding, patient and forgiving – towards others and myself.  Don’t forget, that we too have, can and will disappoint others as well.
