30 Days of Thankfulness: Days 15 and 16

Almost a year ago The Lord told me my “circle” would get small, really small. On a superficial level this was no surprise. When the emotionally abusive relationship I was in ended all of my ties were cut with “his” friends. It didn’t take long to learn they weren’t my friends. However, as I grew closer to The Lord and I changed I noticed my circle was indeed shrinking. I began to hear, “You’ve changed.” I even had “family” delete me from Facebook. “Friends” who had supported me started dropping off, “unliking” my page. Some didn’t like my change, others didn’t think I was making the change fast enough, still others thought I was still making too many mistakes during the change (because, I still have this human side to me). “Poppa, I don’t understand what I did to them personally. It hurts my feelings to the core of my heart. Why could they not just support me?” What I heard was, how did they treat Jesus? He was truly innocent and yet hated. The more He did, the more He was despised. How humbling. Yes, I have changed. I am not the same shell of an emotionally abused woman I was a year ago. I am my Father’s daughter and I am walking into all He has created me to be. For day 15, I am thankful my circle is small because it is true and customized by God. The Holy Spirit moves in those meant to be part of my destiny and He causes anyone that will hinder it to exit it. #11.15.18

I am so thankful for a God that is ALWAYS true and faithful in a cold world filled with betrayal and hypocrisy. I see it everywhere I look. It is another reason I am thankful for my small circle above. As each day passes, I learn more and more we can be acquainted with a lot of people, but those same people are quick to talk behind your back or not catch you when you fall (or worse kick you while you are down). But praise The Lord HE IS EVER TRUE AND FAITHFUL. We can go to Him with anything and He listens, He responds, He cares, He is a Father, and He is a friend. He will never hurt us and never betray us. He always picks us up when we fall. I’m just so thankful on day 16 that the world may be cold, but our Father never will be. 💛 ~ Chelle, #f8ithgal #11.16.18

  1. Amen. Our Father teaches us all good things. May we be always getting closer to him, listening for his every word, whisper & guidance. He will never lead us astray, rather he leads us to paths of righteousness, Grace & love!
