Relation

October 28, 2008

Friendship is an odd thing. I have noticed that when one relationship is hurting, or get’s cut off I struggle in all of my other friendships. Like that feeling of trust or stability has been broken, so I don’t see a point in pursuing “closeness”. This is definitely anti-Jesus, and something I need to work on. I feel like I am going through the tail end of one of those times, and I feel a bit alarmed because I didn’t really seek God through this time. I doubted the fact that His grace is actually 100% sufficient for us all. He wants us to walk in fullness of life both personally and relationally.

 

All that said, I am working on it. I am sorry if any of my readers have felt alienated by me, or ignored. I truly feel like there is a new breath of life in my lungs. I feel hopeful.

Funny how exactly what we need to do is usally the last thing we even think of.

  9. […] Seriously Prophecy November 20, 2008 Real quick little thought here, that relates back to this post. I really want to be “Life-deep” in my Christianity, not simply “Mind-deep”. The […]
