He calls me friend!

John 15 vs 12 by Angelasheartworks on Etsy

I am a friend of God - lyrics by Israel Houghton

VERSE:
Who am I that you are mindful of me
That you hear me, when I call
Is it true that you are thinking of me
How you love me, it's amazing (Who am I Lord)

CHORUS:
I am a friend of God
I am a friend of God
I am a friend of God
He calls me friend

God Almighty
Lord of Glory
You have called me friend

We sang this song at church on Sunday and every time we sing this song I am so moved.  Here on the internet and also in life, we spend much time trying to make the right connections.  We think, if only I knew someone who would help me.  If I could get the right people to follow my Facebook page or my twitter I could be successful.  There is much concern about who we have as a friend and how many friends we have.  If we are looking for a job we think, if only I knew someone who would help, the mayor or someone in some big company who would show favor to me.   
Well, we do have a friend to help in our times of need.  His name is Jesus and we can call upon Him and He hears our cry.   He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother.  He is our advocate. He is God and He calls me friend!





Here is an uplifting version by Israel Houghton and New Breed.  Enjoy!
