Jesus is the friend of people who are willing to admit that they have problems. If we understand that we have issues, if we recognize that we have stuff we cannot conquer, then Jesus is near to us.

You don’t have to be good to be Jesus’s friend. You just have to be honest.

Jesus welcomes doubts, questions, confusion, frustration, venting, and disbelief. He welcomes those who draw near and say, ‘I feel so far.’ If you haven’t talked to him in a while, he will not bite your head off. His arms are always open. Jesus can handle your clenching of the teeth and shaking of the fist. What he does not want is for you to stay there. J.S. (via jspark3000)
