We have to fight for relationships, but only the ones The LORD ordains! (That could be another post.)
God can Repair Relationships. Still it is all about ‘Timing’, God’s perfect timing!
Let me first share a Vision that I had two nights ago.
Through the night, I saw ‘cracked eggshells’ on top of my Bible. They were white, but had no yoke. They were clean, broken eggshells.
As I prayed for understanding, The LORD spoke to me, “It is broken — the shell. What does that mean child/ daughter?
It is a new life inside. The Bible is the Word of God to My People. I speak blessings in it. Also I pronounce curses to the disobedient and unruly.
Where do you go with this? Back to the beginning, which is also the ending chosen one.”
(The Scriptures will be at the very end.)
Now another bit of understanding is coming this morning to me.
I always welcome input from other Christians with insight, after you read. We are broken people many times. Life hurts us, people hurt us. We can get very wounded on the inside. That is why The Word of God tells us to ‘guard our hearts‘.
Let me say here, we need to be open to The Holy Spirit to come in and heal us.
First though, we need to ask The LORD to show us our own hearts, and of any ‘small foxes’ trying to get in. It is a daily renewal of our mind and hearts.
Getting back, pain hurts and the deepest cuts often are from the ones closest to us!
I’ve often heard the question in Christian circles: “What are we even doing with ‘feelings’? We need be all the way dead to ourselves.”
While this is very true, we are still a work in progress. Believe me, if we care deeply and try to give 100% — we can get hurt. That goes back to fully not guarding our heart enough.
Now let’s stop and look more at the picture. Many times, those around us are not meaning to hurt us.
Often — and I do repeat often — it is only through ‘misunderstandings’. Then we can pray about talking to that person when the timing is right.
One example, I have often found true misunderstandings in phone conversations. The enemy delights to get you hearing something that person never even said.
Signals, oh boy… If a car is going through a dead spot, where there is no reception, you only catch part of what they are saying. Then a misunderstanding can occur.
One precious couple I have walked closely with for a few years, have done this. At the beginning of any phone conversation, they have bound the enemy and cleared the atmosphere. It will work every time!
Now, let’s talk about text. To the ones of us who are ‘textors’, lol… There are multitudes of room for error here. We are in modern technology. We have to remember also, who is the prince of the power of the air.
How many of us have accidentally sent a wrong text to the wrong person? Oh my… I am guilty! It will cause confusion every time!
Another point of consideration, people are seeing things from their own ‘perspective’. Even in the best of circumstances, we have to be willing to keep the airwaves clear between us. This walk on this pathway with The LORD is not easy, but very glorious.
We must abide in Him as He is in us. Also, what about the Scriptures, about our minds being the battlefield?
In conclusion, we must be tenderhearted forgiving each other.
God knows our motives and why we are doing what we are doing. Let’s put The LORD first, others next and ourselves last.
If we are obeying what The LORD speaks to us, then let God take care of the rest. We are not always going to be understood!
Also if we are not receiving any persecution, we are not walking Godly in Christ Jesus.
So let’s be the real deal, and not give satan (small ‘s’ here) any advantage. This is spoken in love, and goes to me first, then out to you all.
God bless you.

“The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; the fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away. O my dove, that art in the clefts of the rock, in the secret places of the stairs, let me see thy countenance, let me hear thy voice; for sweet is thy voice, and thy countenance is comely. Take us the foxes, the little foxes, that spoil the vines: for our vines have tender grapes.” Song of Solomon 2:12-15.
