Losing Friends

Whether we move, or just grow apart, we sometimes lose friends.

I often see tweeted on twitter: We don’t lose our friends, we just find who are friends really are. But that isn’t all that heartening. Why can’t we feel as though we have friends we can rely on?

This question was answered somewhat after I read this from 21st Century Science and Health, “On the road to Emmaus, Jesus was known to his friends by the words which made their hearts burn within, and by the breaking of bread. The divine Spirit, which identified Jesus centuries ago, has spoken through the inspired Word and will speak through it in every generation and locality.

Jesus was on the road to Emmaus after his resurrection. At first, Jesus wasn’t recognized, basically because the men thought Jesus was dead. But, he wasn’t dead. After Jesus talked to them for a while, they recognized their burning hearts. Their hearts weren’t burning with sadness, but joy and spiritual power.

No matter who I am with, friend or foe, I try to look past the human picture and see, or feel, what divine Spirit is revealing to me. Spirit can only reveal its own goodness, therefore, when I’m true to what Spirit is revealing, I feel as though I am around friends more often.
