i have a best friend. yes. i have A best friend. it sounds silly to be 30 years old and mention a friend like i might have when i was 5 and on the playground. but it’s true, i have a best friend. i love all my friends and they stand out each on their own with something beautiful in their own rights, but this best friend is special. i don’t know how to explain her or our relationship. it’s been through a lot the past year and as we embark on different seasons it’s hard to navigate the new course we’re on. but one thing will never change, she’s my best friend.

i heard this song for the first time a few years ago. i thought christy nockels was singing about her husband. my best friend told me christy wrote the song about her very best friend. i didn’t understand how someone could write something like that about a friend, at least back then i didn’t. now i know though. i have a best friend whom i could have written this song about.

if you don’t have a friend like this, i pray the Lord will bring you one. love you shell.

Something brought you to my mind today
I thought about the funny ways
you make me laugh
And yet I feel like it’s ok to cry with you
Something about just being with you
When I leave I feel like I’ve been with God
and that’s the way it ought to be, yeah

Chorus:
Cause you’ve been more than a friend to me
you fight off my enemies for me
cause you have spoken the truth over my life
And you’ll never know what it means to me
just to know you’ve been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
more than you’ll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, more than you’ll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah

You had faith
when I had none
You prayed God would bring me a brand new song
When I didn’t think I could find the strength to sing
and all the while I’ve been hoping that I’ll
do the kind of praying for you that you’ve done for me
and that’s the way it ought to be, yeah

Chorus

You have carried me
You have taken on a burden
that wasn’t your own, yeah
may that blessing return to you
A hundredfold
oh oh yeah, a hundredfold

Chorus:
Cause you’ve been more than a friend to me
you fight off my enemies
cause you have spoken the truth over my life
And you’ll never know what it means to me
just to know you’ve been on your knees for me
Oh, you have blessed my life
more than you’ll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah, more than you’ll ever know
Yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you’ll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you’ll ever know, yeah, yeah, yeah
More than you’ll ever know.
