The other day, I was singing this song on my own, in worship-
Jesus, Lover of my soul, Jesus, I will never let You go. You’ve taken me from the miry clay. You’ve set my feet upon the rock and now I know. I love you. I need you. Though my world may fall, I will never let you go. My Savior my closest friend —
I kept singing and pondering this last lyric. I don’t know how to explain how this hit me- but it did. I just kept singing this lyric "my Savior (yes, I know 100% You are my Savior), my closest Friend." It’s almost as if I was singing this last part as a question. Is Jesus really my closest friend? A better friend than my wife, than my closest fleshy-friends (godly but made of flesh), closer than my kids? Would I rather be with God or watch a movie? Would I rather spend time reading His book or the latest trendy book? Do I desire Him more than anything else? Do I call on my best Friend when I need help or someone else?
