“A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words.”
I don’t know who originally said that but I like it very much. For me, that friend is only one person: Jesus. Over the years, I have often “forgotten the words.” In fact, there were a great many years when I ignored and even rejected my friend and yet He kept my song snugly tucked in His keeping until I was ready to sing again.
There have been times in life when words failed me trying to explain what I was going through. It seemed I couldn’t even explain it to myself. Yet deep down I always knew that there was One who understood me better than I understood myself. On top of that, He believed in me and knew that in just the right time, He would start my little song and prompt me to sing it once again.
I don’t know what you have been through – maybe life has been very rough. Any hopes you started with were abandoned long ago. Maybe you aren’t even sure anymore what those hopes or dreams were. But just because you forgot doesn’t mean they are lost. Believe me they are not lost. There is a friend named Jesus. Call Him up. He’s got your song.
