The Garden of Friendship

In the garden of friendship, our Eden can become a Gethsemane. Our trusted companions can fall asleep, leaving us alone to drink the bitter cup. And our friends of many years may wound us with their kisses of betrayal. Yes, we may often walk alone in the garden. But there is Another faithful and ever-present Friend. He is gracious and tender-hearted, sympathizing with all our trials, failures, and sorrows. He’s a consistent Friend—unchanging and unchangeable. No circumstance or distance can separate us from our Savior. No wonder the Song of Songs (5:10, 16) refers to Him as: “The chiefest among ten thousand….This is my Beloved, THIS IS MY FRIEND,” He is enough for me—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
