Some people are not content
with their choice of friends
If you're not quite what they want
they wish to change you
and rearrange you.
They remind me of someone
who liked a house and the garden
but they disliked the furnishings within.
They seek to put their pictures up
yours aren't good enough
so they take them down.
But you are Jesus' precious treasure
He really loves us in full measure.
He gives giftings to express and explore
aim for friends who respect you more.
Make known your wishes before they make theirs
do this carefully, this would be wise.
Let not the wicked drive me away
in the Arms of Jesus, I wish to stay.
For they seek to disturb through friends
do not your ears lend.
Make an Inner and Outer Circle
of those you can trust and those maybe not.
For this process, be not in a rush.
Jesus had His Inner Circle
some old and new friends prove to be hurtful.
Take time deciding how close you will be
not so quick in taking liberties.
Trust your Maker, this makes for Peace greater
Ask Him to help you in your decisions
your thoughts will less often be in derision.
Some friends are alright for Outer Circle
you should not include them in your Inner Circle
(sharing precious things)
Inner Circle is for those you can trust
they don't seek to change you
and they do not fuss.
Think I will try this exercise
some believers and friends have stepped out of line.
Friends don't have to be perfect
but they can go too far
Trust Jesus for True Friends that will last.
You do not have to impress them
or strive for their favor
they are truly genuine in nature.
You can build a relationship with them
give this time, let your spirit mend.
Some seek to rearrange this and rearrange that
but some are friends for life
Those friendships last.
"Peace to All"
