This last year’s been quite an uphill struggle with life, faith and everything. So just the other day I was sitting and thinking about all the good things that have happened over the last one year. The first thing that came to my mind was friends. I’ve made some of the most awesome friends a guy could ever make. When I think about them, the word that constantly comes to my mind is “Real”. I love the fact that each of them is Real and not fake. I guess we all do put on a mask sometimes to cover who we really are and pretend like we’ve got it all together. But if we can be real to an extent where people know that we aren’t always strong, that we aren’t perfect, that we do have doubts and questions but we’re striving to be better people, striving to be who God wants us to be, then we are being Real. Friends around whom you can be real are precious.


God always reminds me through them that we are each unique and special, created in his likeness but with so many different abilities and talents. When I look at each of them, I am always amazed by how awesome our God is. No two people are the same. There are those who talk a lot, those who don’t talk much, those who make sense when they’re talking and those who don’t make any sense. There are those who listen, those who advice, those who want to be in the front, those who want to be at the back, those who are strong in their faith, those who are weak, those who always want to go out and those who don’t really want to go out. If I listed out the talents and skills that each one possesses the list would be endless about how unique they all are. And of course there are those who annoy you to the maximum but you’d never want them to leave.

Another thing that I know when I look at them is “He has made everything beautiful in its time”. I don’t think these friends could have come at a better time. I’ve been friends with these guys from Powerhouse for over a year now (though I’ve know some of them for more than that). At a time when I had more questions than answers, more cynicism than trust they were there to help me realize that God’s love is true, his timing is perfect, his plans for us are better than what we could ever think or imagine.

So in conclusion, I want to say that if you don’t have good friends you really need to get some. You don’t know what you’re missing out on. And if you live in Chennai, come to powerhouse, stay for our youth fellowship “U-turn” after church. You’ll meet some of the most amazing people you’ve ever met in your life and your life will never be the same again.
