I begged God, "I just want one good friend."

In today's social media world, "friends" come and go with each passing day. We collect vast numbers and mass communicate with them via a keypad. In many ways they are just names in a directory.Having true friends is much more complicated, especially during those critical school years. Doug Bender's perceived lack of friends growing up greatly impacted his life. In his I am Second film, Doug remembers the scarring that took place during his search for friends, and how he finally discovered the key to understanding friendship. -description of the video, from

I'm trying to start this thing where I post something every Friday. It doesn't have to be much, just something Christ-centered I can share with you guys. This blog needs to get back to it's usual consistency. (Maybe call it Feature Friday? xP)

Anyways, today I want to share with you this amazing video, and testimony from I am Second.

The person in the video is Doug Bender. His story is similar to a lot of ours, I believe. Feeling worthless, alone, and just unloved and even hating yourself; almost everyone can relate to that, including me. Especially us younger people. That's one of the things that makes Doug's testimony special, along with what God does to rock his world. It's really amazing, and I'm praying that you'll watch it, and take what he says to heart.

Have a great day, and God bless!
