This live performance of ‘Friends’ from Michael W. Smith is truly touching. We have all lost loved ones in our lives, but it is such a peaceful feeling knowing that they are in a better place with our Lord in Heaven.
‘Can’t believe the hopes He’s granted
Means a chapter in your life is through
But we’ll keep you close as always
It won’t even seem you’ve gone
‘Cause our hearts in big and small ways
Will keep the love that keeps us strong’
It’s never easy to say goodbye to a friend, but this song is such a great reminder that God is in control. Our loved ones are now in the hands of the Lord and that is such a blessing to reflect upon. Our friends are never really gone. They are our friends forever and they will be waiting to greet us in Heaven. This is such a special song and the powerful lyrics will truly speak to your heart in your time of need.
‘And friends are friends forever
If the Lord’s the Lord of them
And a friend will not say never
‘Cause the welcome will not end
Though it’s hard to let you go
In the Father’s hands we know
That a lifetime’s not too long
To live as friends’
Let these words comfort you during your time of grief and remember that God is with us each and every day.
Joshua 1:9 “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
