“We all need “foul-weather friends” who will venture out into the weather with us.”
Holley Gerth, from “Rain on Me: Daily Moments of Hope and Encouragement”
Isn’t that the truth? Solid friendship is built, not on the fun times, as great as they are, but on the dismal, despair-filled seasons when true friends shine like bright stars against the inky backdrop of a long, dark night of the soul.
“A true friend loves regardless of the situation, and a real brother exists to share the tough times.” Proverbs 17:17
God’s constant promise is that He will never leave or forsake us, a promise that is restated throughout Scripture. I’m grateful that He is the ultimate “foul-weather friend”!
