"A Friend Loves At All Times"

(Please click on picture for a full-sized view)
As I was waking up the other morning, the Scripture, “A friend loves at all times”, from Proverbs 17:17, came to my mind.  Once fully awake I began to pray as I thought about the sometimes more challenging and difficult times in relationships, allowing the Lord to bring other related Scripture to me as He inspired me to create this piece.  I pray to be a good friend to all those the Lord would bring across my path; one who is patient and kind toward the weak, who is giving and faithful, who speaks encouraging words to lift a heart that is burdened down, anxious or afraid, depositing the truth of God to help raise them up in faith.  I ask the Lord to make me ever prayerful for a brother or sister in need, trusting the Lord to help bring them out of dark places to clearly see again as they are strengthened in Him.  The Lord who dwells within us is a friend who is closer than a brother, and so I pray to always be a true friend, walking in the very nature of Christ, sharing His love as His Holy Spirit fills and directs me to extend His gracious hand with the same mercy He has shown me, because surely, FRIENDS ARE GIFTS THAT HEAVEN SENDS and A FRIEND LOVES AT ALL TIMES!
