A man of many companions may come to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24
I'm a very social person. There are very few people I won't talk to, share with. But only a select few are what I (now, to myself ;)) call my "blue jeans buddies."
These are friends who I let see the real me--warts, insecurites, jean rips, lunacy and all. I don't hide my struggles, my faults, my stupidity from these folks--because they are my sisters (LOL for the most part - there's at least one guy in there). They aren't gonna run if I do something stupid. In fact, they'll probably tell me how stupid it is and try to get me back on the right track. They pray for me, laugh with me, cry with me, and rejoice with me--and I do the same things with them.
And the more I think about this, the more I realize I should have one more "blue jeans buddy." My Heavenly Father. He loves me more than any of them do--and he knows me better, can give me wiser counsel, and WANTS to be this kind of friend to me. All I need to do is talk to Him the same way I do my blue jeans buddies.
