First off, the friends I have right now, they know who they are, and know that I love them very much. This is not what this post is about.
I don't think I have ever had a group of friends to hang out with like for weekends or after work on a regular basis. I do like being at home a lot but still I would like to hang out more with others. I have been a homebody since high school. I don't party. I don't do drugs. I don't drink. So with that being said, for me personally, it is kinda hard to find good people my age like that. I find myself surrounded with people who do illegal drugs. I want to befriend them. But, I don't want to get an addiction i definitely don't need. How do you go about it? If Jesus could do it...I have that power as well. Jesus thrived on living around those kinds of people.
At the end of the night, when I lay my head on my pillow, I thank my Heavenly Father for what He has given me. If God chooses to only give me the close friends I have now, I will still remain thankful.
