From early childhood we learn about relationships, from our family whether it be our parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousin to school relationships with friend girls, homies, boyfriends, girlfriends etc. We also learn early about the joys and difficulties of these relationships which create in our adult lives, boundaries and standards… Now LIFE HAPPENS!!
Through the journey of life you have now learned what relationships are causing you to question those boundaries and standards that you have set forth. Is it worth it? Should I settle? Why aren’t they happy for me? Am I looking into to this too much? What don’t “they” get it?
If you are currently in this space, understand
your path has been written with free will.
Free will meaning God has given us, to a great extent, the freedom to determine our own future. The Bible encourages us to “choose life” by listening to God’s voice, through choosing to obey his commands.(ex. Walking by faith and not sight, not leaning NOT on our own understanding but trusting where God is leading you by listening to him via the spirit aka gut feelings).
You are now in a space of growth and I know you have heard before that everyone cannot go with you on your journey. You may really want them to but you do not understand why there is push back from them on anything and everything? Or why do “they” appear to be in the same place, in your mind not growing or maturing? “They” are my friends and have been forever but I feel soo distant from them! Well, it is because you are now finding yourself and discovering your purpose.. YOU ARE NOW WINNING!!! Don’t look back keep looking forward and listening to GOD.
Proverbs 12:26 “The righteous should CHOOSE HIS FRIENDS CAREFULLY, for the way of the wicked leads them astray.”
Proverbs: 13:20 “Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Psalm 41:9: “Even my close friend in whom I trusted, who ate my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
Trust the process!
