I have gotten to know Scotty on many levels through our life together. He is so interesting.
Not to long ago we went through a season that was extremely difficult for our family. It was in this season that Scotty demonstrated the love of Jesus to me like no one else ever had. He loved unconditionally, was firm, but kind, merciful, patient. He was amazing! He was such an example to me and to the rest of our family. I got to know my husband at a whole new level through the trial we were experiencing.
I have gotten to know the Lord at many different levels. First I knew Him as Savior. He became my salvation when I was nine years old. Through the years He has been many different things to me. Helper, restorer, deliverer, mentor, teacher, giver. He has been kind, trustworthy, faithful, determined, patient, hope, my peace. Joy! He has been life to me! He has been everything to me!
I have known Jesus on so many levels, at so many stages, and in so many circumstances. My favorite way of knowing Him is as my friend. He is my best friend. He knows and understands me even when I don't understand myself. He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. He is a friend that will be faithful to the end. He will never leave me or forsake me. He will never lie to me, steal from me, or condemn me. He is on my side. He wants me to succeed and not fail. He is for me and not against me. He will bless and encourage me all of my days. He will not change. He will be just as He is FOREVER! He is not ever going to change His mind about our relationship! We are in this thing for the long haul! Eternity!
I am so thankful to know Him! Do you know Him as friend?
