Flourish

BlendToday I thanked Jesus for cutting ties and shutting doors. Sometimes I see things that trigger memories of past relationships, and just rest in knowing they are not in my circus, or of my monkeys.  I hate knowing that they have had a poisonous effect on people I have respected, but that’s their puzzle to work out.

Doesn’t mean I don’t love them. Doesn’t mean I don’t care about their well being. It just means I no longer consider it my priority. Proverbs 13:20 tells me that it makes a huge difference who I choose to be around.  I can tell you, from personal experience, what it has meant to see loved ones extracted from poisoned waters and placed somewhere they can flourish. I can tell you what it’s done for me at times.

Pray about it. Forgive them.  Don’t be distracted by what they’re doing or who else chooses to participate. Forget what you see as your “investment” in that person (that’s what sometimes makes it the hardest to go).

Then, take a deep breath, acknowledge that it hurts and guiltlessly move on with being/becoming who you are.
