The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness. This is how our God describes Himself. Compassionate. Gracious. Slow to anger. Loving. Faithful. Wouldn't it be awesome to have a friend that you could describe in that way? You do! I never cease to be amazed when I think that God, the creator of everything, wants to have a personal relationship with me. With me! But He does and He wants to be your friend, too.
