“And when we heard these things, both we, and they of that place, besought him not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered, What mean ye to weep and to break mine heart? for I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die at Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus. And when he would not be persuaded, we ceased, saying, The will of the Lord be done.” (Acts 21:12-14)
People come into our lives who make such an impact on us that we are forever changed. They help us see something new, learn something meaningful and help us grow into someone we never thought we could be.
In the midst of all the changes taking place around you, hold on to what you have learned from the special friend(s) God has brought into your life. Hold on to all of the good. Keep it at the forefront of your heart and they will always be with you no matter where God takes you.
Prayer: Father God, I thank you for the change that you have caused special people to make in my life. I’ve grown in so many ways and have learned so much. I want them to stay in my life, but help me respect the changes that life can bring. Help me hold on to the memories when I can’t hold on to them. Help me hold on to the blessing they’ve meant to me when I can’t see their face. Fill my heart Lord with your love and comfort. Let your will be done. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Amen. I too feel like this has been a battle. The Lord blessed me with a wonderful man after a toxic relationship. The enemy has tried to get me to keep my eyes off of the beauty of my new partner and new life as a Christian.

I have to trust Him and believe and know that He has my best interest at heart God Bless!!!
Thank you Father God, for all the blessings that you have bestowed upon me. Thank you for the people that, you have allowed to enter into my life. More importantly I, thank you for change. Without good change, there is no growth.
Thank You Lord for loving me, keeping me, blessing me, and allowing me to be a blessing. I have been on both sides of this kind of a relationship. 16 years ago at a very dark point in my life, while thinking of suicide, God sent a woman. I used to try to hide from her. She seemed concerned and cared about me. She prayed with me and for me. We went from strangers to friends and now I’m proud to call her my sister. I thank God for using her in my life. I’ve come a long way since then.
About 2 1/2 years ago, God placed a young woman in my life that came to work with my 2 year old granddaughter who was placed in my care. There was just something about her that I felt and saw when I first met her. This relationship has developed and grown drastically over these past years. When she read DOTK this morning she said she thought of me. Amen! I just thank God for using me, and allowing me to be there for her, to encourage her, support her, and uplift her. I couldn’t do it without Him. She has really grown spiritually. She is on fire for the Lord; seeking Him, listening, trusting, and holding onto His hand. She has blossomed into a Beautiful Princess a (Daughter of the King). I am so proud of her. I’m proud to be her spiritual mom and to call her my daughter. I know to her it doesn’t seem like it but she has helped me to grow also. It has been a wonderful journey for both us. I just thank God that He placed us in each other’s life. I’m excited to see what the future is going to bring, not only in her life but mine. I will always cherish the heart felt memories, and the growth in me, from meeting these two women who have had an impact on not only who I am, but who’s I am! HALLELUJAH THANK YOU JESUS!
I need you Abba to send true sisters & friends into my life. My blood sisters don’t serve you Heavenly Father or Jesus Christ. They hate me, & tell me to shut my mouth
about Jesus Christ. They
don’t want to hear about
Him. One of my sister’s hit me in my left eye when I walked into my
even care that
mother who was sitting
right there said
she didn’t see
took my wallet & when I asked for it back she hit me on the head with a landline
phone receiver & kept hitting
me with this sadistic smile on
her face. Again my mother
was right there because I
asked her for help to stop my
oldest sister. My mom again
said she didn’t see anything
or hear me asking for her
help. I went home very tired,
so I lied down & fell asleep. I
woke up to the phone ringing
next to me, & I didn’t know
what that was or who I was. I
had a huge knot & blood clot
under my skin with a black &
blue forehead. I had a bad headache and had total amnesia. Thank God I got my full memory back but I am still blind in my left eye. Please pray for my protection & friends that will be like a family. I want to move away but have no means in which to do it. I feel so alone & tired of family members that serve the adversary.
Y u didn’t have her arrested, sister or not, y would u let her get away with that. But the Lord says vengeancings is Mine, I shall repay saidest the Lord. So her day is surely coming, I don’t wish that on nobody and the enemy won’t b around 2 help her either.
SWEET GIRL MY HEART GOES OUT TO U..BABY GIRL GOD DOES NOT WANT TO SEE ANYVOF HIS CHILDREN IN HARMS WAY HE IS OUR PROTECTOR….I KNOW U R ONLY WALKING IN LOVE.BUT IF U R NOT LIVING IN THE SAME HOME ITS OK FOR U TO CLOSE THE DOORS TO EVEN THE ONES U LOVE MOST….AND IN YOUR OWN HOME U CAN INTERCEDE FOR THEM….SOMETIMES MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS THAT WE KNOW IN OUR SPIRITS IS THE RIGHTEOUS THING TO
DO. FOR SOME REASON BECOMES TBE HARDEST DECISION TO MAKE….BUT WITH TRUSTING THE LORD AND KNOWING THAT HE IS YOUR SHIELD YOUR HEDGE IT BECOMES A DECISION THAT WILL BUILD YOU STRONGLY IN HIS IMAGE..ITS OK TO STEP AWAY AND TO ALLOW GOD TO DO HIS WORK IN YOUR FAMILY….IT DOESNT MEAN U DONT LOVE THEM OR WANT ANYTHING TO DO WITH THEM…BUT AT THE SAME TIME GOD DOES NOT WANT TO SEE US ABUSEED BY ANY ONE….I ONLY SHARE THIS BC IVE BEEN IN THROUGH ABUSE….TRUST GOD AND INTERCEDE FOR YOUR FAMILY….YOUVR NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THEM..,YOU’VE SHARED ABOUT CHRIST WITH THEM..NOW ITS A CHOICE THEY MUST MAKE FOR THEMSELVES TO WANT TO KNOW WHO CHRIST IS…YOU CONTINUE TO WALK IN LOVE AND FORGIVE BABY GIRL…U R IN MY PRAYERS
That is special. Won’t Be send a friend!God has blessed me to meet a young lady about six years ago at the church where I attended.God had removed me for one year out of that church and placed me back there. When I went back the enemy begin to spread lies on me through leaders and other church members about me to her and for some reason God still allow a friendship to blossom inspite of what she heard. Months went by of us hanging together and she finally said ,u know Bridget they told me a lot of things about you and I’ve been hanging around you for months and everything that they said about you.I don’t see any of it. That’s my sister, they turned on her and now Gos blesses us both to be apart of a ministry that is filled with the spirit of God not a perfect church but holiness shines bright and the spirit of the Lord reigns in that place.God will send u a friend indeed!!God bless
