Saying Goodbye

" For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Jeremiah 29:11

Saying goodbye is never an easy thing to do. Sometimes we have no choice in the matter and sometimes we do. But either way, it's never easy!

Yesterday, I had to say goodbye to one of my best friends. It had been a long time coming, but that doesn't make the hurt any easier to handle. I love my friend deeply, but couldn't take the hurt and the verbal abuse any longer.

I pray the best for my friend and that she will allow God into her life to help her get through and deal with all of the abuse and anger that she is dealing with. I pray that God will heal her mind, body, and soul.

God bless you, my friend. I will love you always!

Letting go of friends is one of the hardest things. I had to do the same once. I wanted to help this friend. I tried and tried but I just couldn't. I even tried just being there for her but it became impossible. It was like the swimmers in trouble who drown their rescuers. I had to walk away. Many prayers for you and your friend.

Laura,

I don't know the details, and I don't need to, the Lord knows. But I want you to know that I am praying for you and your friend and that healing and comfort will abound.

Hugs, my friend.
