who ya gonna call

When its raining hard outside, the winds are blowing, and your out in the cold, who are ya gonna call? When you have lost your friends, when your husband has lost his job, who ya gonna call? When your mom is sick, you feel as though your in over your head, who are ya gonna call? When the bills are piling up, the car is out of gas, who are ya gonna call? When things were really good, it seems as though we have a friend everywhere we turn, but when things tend to get hard, people scatter. When things are hard, people don't know what to say, they don't even look at you anymore. Its easier if they stay away, they they don't have to ask, "Are you okay, do you need anything?" When you feel alone, when you are hurting, when the enemy is at your door, when things are getting really hard, call upon the friend who never leaves your side, the friend who there always, not just on the good days, not just when you have something to offer, but He is there to pick you up, to lift you out of the pit, to wipe away your tears, to clean you off, to dress you up, and to make you feel special. No one can make you feel more special than Jesus Christ. Am I speaking of my life right now? I believe I am, so much hurt is inside, and you just want it all to go away and want things to go back the way they were, the way they once were when laughter filled your home, when there wasn't a struggle to get out of bed, when your husband left for work everyday and was filled with joy. I know life is not perfect, the Lord never promised that, but He did promise to never leave us. He is the Friend of all friends. The only thing that can come between my friendship, my walk with Him is me. He never leaves, I am the one who leaves Him. I am the one that walks away when things are hard, when I just need to let it all go and run to Him!! That is Jesus! Jesus will not turn and run when things get hard, He will run to you. His phone will not be busy, nor will his calender be filled up, only to hold His important dates, for His calender holds everything from big to small for you. He is waiting for you to call upon His name. He is there for you right now, no matter where you are or what you are doing, no matter what is touching your life, all you have to do is call out His name, and praise Jesus He will be there. He doesn't have to wait for the next flight out, He doesn't have to wait until the rain has stopped and the fog has parted, He is there right when you speak His name. He is the greatest friend you will ever have, He is the friend you want by your side, and in your heart. He is the friend who prays ceasingly for you, He is the friend who has given all for you, He is the friend who will follow you anywhere, and call your name when you have left His fold.He is the friend who doesn't wait for you to reach out for Him, He reaches out to You, for He is the One who sought you out. He will not forget you, nor will He replace you. There is no greater love than His love. There is no greater friendship than His friendship. Wherever you are today friend, whatever is on your heart, call upon His name today, right now, and allow Him to lavish you with His love, to wash you of His peace, and to lift you with His power and strength. Oh, sweet friend, what a friend we have in Jesus, mighty, mighty Jesus!
Psalm 121 "I lift my eyes to the hills-where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Make of heaven and earth. He will not let your foot slip-he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber not sleep. The Lord watches over you-the Lord is your shade at your right hand;the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm-he will watch over your life;the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.
Jesus, come and wash over me today, cleanse me from all filth, and lift me from this pit of the world. Lord, keep us in Your tender care, and may we forever look to You as our Savior, our King, our Father, and our Friend~
