As we tell of our great God’s majesty, mercy, and intimate love, our convictions and the faith of others can be strengthened by the confirmation of His enduring trustworthiness.

Decided to make a edgy dramatic take on what happened during one of our sessions.
My friend voted out the wrong one and was doomed
“Do not trust a neighbor;
Put no confidence in a friend.
Even with her who lies in your embrace
Be careful of your words.
For a son dishonors his father,
A daughter rises up against her mother,
A daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law –
A man’s enemies are the members of his own household.
But as for me, I watch in hope for the LORD,
I wait for God my Savior;
My God will hear me.”
- Micah 7:5-7 NIV (2007)
I’m always taken aback how someone can trust someone else, be vulnerable with them. I can’t imagine trusting someone. How do you do that? When I tried to trust someone I always got hurt. Every time. At 23, my brain always says “don’t get too close, remember when…?” “They’re gonna hurt you.” “It’s all just a game to them, they don’t like you or love you.” … and you know what? it’s always been right, I always got hurt. Maybe I’m going to be all alone. I’m still processing that…
To let people live as they choose to is important. You can’t force someone, so don’t try. You make yourself miserable and the person you’re talking to.
Only God can change and help a heart, pray for someone you are concerned with. He knows what do to and will do his best.
Free will is important and letting someone else live on their own terms is an important lession I leared and cherish dearly.
God bless you!
“All that I have
All that I hold
All that is wrong
All that I feel for or trust in or love
All that is gone […]
But the last day of summer
Never felt so cold.”
“I’m here to drink something with you. And ask for your help.”
“What have you done now?”
Trust yourself. You’ve survived a lot, and you’ll survive whatever is coming.
