Friday's Quote

"A rule I have had for year's is : to treat the Lord Jesus Christ as a personal friend. He is not a creed, a mere doctrine, but it is HE Himself we have."
Dwight L. Moody
1837-1899 American Evanjelist

HE is my friend. How about you..... Do you consider HIM your friend?

I am always so amazed that He would have that kind of relationship with me, you know? A friend is someone you really like. Someone you WANT to spend time with. The fact that He WANTS to be with me and He truly LIKES me...not just loves me because He has to but likes me, too....well, that just blows my socks off!

Thanks for sharing this quote! :)

I do consider Him my friend and I try to grow that friendship daily. I just read the book "The Shack" and was challenged to view God & Jesus in a more personal and intimate way. Great quote for this Friday!!

Have a wonderful weekend....

"What a friend we have in Jesus..." Great quote girl! Yes, Jesus is my very best friend. If I'm mad, I go tell Him! If I'm happy, I praise & thank Him! If I am worried, I take it to Him (although sometimes I take it back!). I want to spend time with Him and I truly want Him to talk to me; not just vice versa.

For my Friend,
