Godly Seasonal Friendships


God does things in seasons in our life.  

Not everyone is intended to stay in your life forever.  Some are… and some are not.

Sometimes friendships are for a season for certain purposes.  it doesn’t mean you have lost them forever, because we have eternity.

Sometimes though, God has a timing that does not allow them to be there at that time or for a season.

It is all His plan and God wanted me to tell someone to let your heart not be troubled or grieved, because He took this person out for a reason, so that He could do the new thing in your life and you would not have this other focus right now.

He said to tell you,.“It is all good!”

Sometimes, offences must needs be!  God doesn’t cause the offence, but He will use it for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose!

It is time to move forward for many!

“For it must needs be that offences come but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”   Matthew 18:7.

Godly Seasonal Friendships — 2 Comments

  1. I love you, dear sister. All you dear warriors for the LORD and His righteousness. We will meet again !

  2. The physical separation from ‘faith friends’ is initially a shocking and painful experience until one comes to the insight that one is not separated from someone, but rather to someone -to God.
    It is a ‘mystical’ separation, alone and at the same time ‘spiritually’ together with others, separated for the same reason!
