Jesus, My New Friend   Leave a comment

– During a spiritual retreat that I’ve been participating in for the past few weeks, I was asked to speak to Jesus as though He were my friend and listen for his reply – I always talk to God, my Higher Power, and pray in Jesus’ name, but don’t recall ever having a conversation that has been solely to Jesus except to simply say, thank you. Like most relationships it’s developing day by day as I continue to stay in touch –


I think it would be incredible to have You as a friend

I’d allow myself to have more fun – and live with far less fear

I want to be so much more conscious of Your being near

To see you in all that’s living

Even in the breeze on leaves of trees that wave hello

Your breath that wakes them shaking, waving, swaying

Saying, Hey there, notice me


Look around at all the wonder

And don’t be so surprised

I’ve always been here with you, ‘round you, in you

Like lightning, thunder, rain, and sun

Stick with me — we’ve just begun

My love for you is wondrous – spectacular and divine


It’s not all work and ritual

It’s amazing when we’re One

I’m not saying things don’t get difficult

Or that suffering won’t come

But let me walk you through it

There’s nothing that together, we cannot overcome
