FRIENDS IN HIGH PLACES
I am a friend to all who fear you, to all who follow your precepts.
There was a time when I followed the steps of those who did not care about Your existence. I emulated their mannerisms, which reflected worldly poise. I am thankful I woke up from this false dream. When I noticed You on the perimeter of life, I knew right away that I had set my sights too low for myself. There was something greater…no, Someone greater to follow.
I thank You for bringing godly people into my life. My path is not always straight. I wander. I take long detours that should be day trips. My friends who know You and fear You with their every breath gave me directions back to Your way. They stay true to Your precepts, You stay true to me.
