Pause for Poetry — My Best Friend

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch, My Best Friend.

My Best Friend

by Frances Gregory Pasch

Jesus is more than my Savior

He’s also my very best friend.

He’s here whenever I need Him.

On Him I can always depend.

He wakes me every morning

He’s with me all through the day.

And when I’m ready to go to bed

With me all night He will stay.

I have no other friend like Him.

He answers whenever I call.

He only wants what’s best for me.

He picks me up each time I fall.

He knows all of my weaknesses

And from His path I might stray.  

Yet I’m assured He’ll forgive me

If I turn to Him and pray.

And although He is my best friend

He can be your best friend, too.

For His love has no boundaries

He has lots left just for you.

So stop and take a minute;

Welcome Him into your heart.

You’ll sense a wonderful feeling

That only His peace can impart.
