There are signs, there are signals, one might see, if they have a friend, that goes to the dark side.
And you grieve for them, because you love them. But you cannot do anything. Because God gives us a choice. Its always a choice.
But when someone, purposely has pride, will not be humble, will not forgive, will not communicate, will believe a lie, and actually fight you, to maintain all that, hate.
Well….all you can do is walk away. When someone, will bring up offenses, over and over again, that is not forgiving.
See, the enemy, has deceived them. And when any of us, purposely disobey God in matters of forgiveness, well, thats giving place to the enemy. Thats going to the dark side.
See, our words do matter. When one makes a commitment, to love God, and love one another, one takes it to heart. You don’t just say it when its convenient, or when its going good. But through all times.
But I was not the one who made the choice to close the case but her. And, to depart from that, is a choice, and its a choice, that brings darkness. God sees.
Scripture says, a friend, loves at all times, not when its convenient. Or when, everything is alright. Love, does love through, the disagreements, the silence, and even, the hate.
See, I know, I love someone, someone, I called a sister, a friend, who for so much showed friendship and loyalty, to me, but when it came down to it, she was not accountable, to her own behavior. I still love this person, but I see, she has stepped into the darkness. And now I just grieve for her.
Because now she is just someone, who wants nothing to do with me, ever again. And I respect that. It does hurt, but I am grateful, I have my armor on, and I will quench those fiery darts from the enemy, that he uses, from my frien-enemy to throw at me.
I am careful, always, to offer forgiveness, because I know myself, that if we are not pleasing God in this, He will not forgive us. And the record shows I did. But she rejected it.
I may have made mistakes, in fact, I know I did, in friendship with this person, I am thinking about. But the grace was not there for me. And I kept seeing it, and yet I offered grace, but she would not. She offered me the silent treatment, closed the case, and let obscenities be spoken about me. That is not love.
So, when you don’t see grace, that is a signal, that this person, has their blinders on. Sad thing is, if you keep your blinders on, and do not obey God, You can miss it. And walk right into the enemies camp, of darkness. And he only comes to kill, steal and destroy. Even friendships, based on prayer, and God. Especially those kind, and that was the kind of friendship we had, at one time.
Sad thing is though, when you see other friends, contribute to that, and take sides, well they have gone to the dark side with that person. I REBUKE THAT, IN THE NAME OF JESUS. I MARK THAT, AND WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH THEM EITHER.
We pray for people, but we also know, its a choice. You want to pull them out of the fiery flames, but when people silence you, want nothing to do with you.
You go, on, with Christ. Christ said, as His disciples, we were to love one another. He said, that we were to forgive. He said, that love would show we were His disciples. I have tried, but I am done.
I will try and not write about this person, ever again, concerning this person. Because this person, did not care, that she wounded me. But this is how I heal. And I have nothing further to say, you see, I tried. And I know it.
I have so many cards from this person, so many reminders, of a commitment, that she just forgot about. So I may do some purging, of gifts, and reminders.
Make sure you have done all you can in love, and forgiveness, and let the record reflect that. Because there is one. And God sees.
If you can relate to my friend, I implore you to repent to God. I don’t expect an apology at this point, from her, but if I can warn someone, don’t go to the dark side.
BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW THAT YE ARE MY DISCIPLES, IF YE HAVE LOVE ONE TO ANOTHER. JOHN 13:35 KJV.
Blessings, and love,
