Hard to find REAL friends these days.when everyone else who says they are your "friends" let you down.God never will. He is my best friend! He will never disappoint me or bring hurt to me. God=the best friend out there!
Your journey has molded you for your greater god, and it was exactly what it needed to be. Don't think that you've lost time. It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now. And now is right on time.
