Friended by God

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: April 15, 2017

What if Good Friday was God's Gacebook post? …

God friended me through Facebook.
He clicked "love" instead of "like."
I was humbled by the fact He knew my name.
And what is more, God commented
below what I had shared.
He posted on my wall "I feel your pain."

God tagged me in a photograph
of Jesus on the cross.
I didn't understand the reason why.
But then the Lord reminded me
He hung there for my sin,
that I was on His mind the day He died.

I have memories with the Lord of Life
the day He wore my crown.
Good Friday is our anniversary.
For that is when a holy God
befriended me in love
just as I am without a single plea.
