The hardest thing in the world for me is understanding some battles aren’t mine to fight and letting them go. Sometimes the battles people face are coming from within and I can’t fix people, they have to fix themselves. I’m still learning how to do this. I tend to just want to fix everything and make everyone happy. I’m learning how to step back and give them to God, not an easy lesson.
Some people don’t even want to get out of the mess they are in, they almost thrive by trying to pull others under. I’m like a magnet that attracts these people and my efforts to help almost always end with a knife in the back. Do I stop trying? I’ve pondered that for a long while tonight. No, I press on and pray for a discernment in these situations and that God protects my heart from those that aren’t genuine.
These people really need Jesus almost more than anyone; however, their demons aren’t mine to fight. It’s okay to walk away when it starts to hurt me emotionally or spiritually. Perhaps my seeds of kindness and God’s love will take root and God will water it. It’s okay to put it in His hands and walk away. ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal
