Finally mustered the determination to undertake this 30-day letter series.
My best friend,
You carry me through the toughest of times;
Encourage me when I’m scared shitless;
Comfort me when I’m so sad I contemplate getting hit by a truck;
Hear me when I cry out to you in agony;
Patiently wait for me when I take so long to get it;
Extend your hand even as I refuse to surrender my battles to you;
Shower me with your mercies in spite of my disobedience;
Remain faithful although I easily turn my back to you and forget;
Pull me out of every slimy pit that I get myself into;
Grant me grace even when I proudly insist on depending on myself;
Offer me redemption though I’m a rotten repeat offender;
Love me to the point of death that I may be dead to sin;
Give me a new life that I can’t ever earn for myself;
Show me a vision of eternal joy in your presence.
A better friend this world will never know, and every day of my life I will thank and praise You.
All my love,
