Friendship with God

"…there is a friend

who sticks closer than a brother."

Proverbs 18:24


Sometimes I go to God's house, sometimes He visits mine;

He often comes to work with me and helps me pass the time.


He's with me in the kitchen when I cook and as I scrub;

I meditate upon Him while lolling in the tub.


He keeps me company driving and when I take a walk;

God and I stroll quietly and other times, we talk.


God's there when I am shopping and watering my flowers;

He inspires my writing, in computer weary hours.


He's in me as I minister and hears me as I pray,

lifts me up when I am downcast and helps me through the day.


He sups with me at table and He joins me in my rest.

Oh, when we are communing, they're the times I like the best.


God loves it when I worship Him and glorify His Name;

He shines His face upon me and ignites me with His flame!


I read to know God better, for He knows all about me;

fills sleepy thoughts at bedtime with His sweet tranquility.


How blessed I am to know Him! Love overflows my heart!

I count upon His faithfulness and know we'll never part.


My heart is filled with gladness every moment that I spend

with the Creator of the Universe, Holy God, my Friend.
