Jesus loves YOU!!!
As I've talked about recently, In 2021, one of the hardest things happened, one of my best friends chose to leave and go their own way. I was completely devestated but after a few months I had a few things to say to my friend that I felt like I just really needed to say. IF YOU KNOW ME, you know that when it's all said and done, I will NOT hold back from speaking my mind.
I told my friend I want you to know that Jesus STILL loves you. And I told them, let me tell you something, when you chose to leave, I have never been more shocked about anything in my whole entire life!!! I was blindsided, caught off guard, buuuuuuut God wasn’t. God knew these decisions you would make, and he loved you anyways. God is omniscient, all knowing, yet even knowing the choices you would make, he still chose to love you.
I said, Had it been me that had known the future, I don’t know that I would have allowed myself to become best friends with you! I would have tried to protect myself from the hurt I would one day feel when you made this decision to leave! I hate to say it but it’s true… my love is not perfect, like God’s love!
I think I would have said, eh, they'll one day walk away from the things of God. Why bother taking the time to hang out with them, they're leaving anyways, what’s the point? Why risk the heartbreak of knowing they’ll one day be gone and out of my life, I’ll just find someone else to be friends with! That's ME!!! Sorry if it sounds rude or mean buuuuuuuuut it's the truth-Had I known the future like God, as an imperfect human, I would have chosen differently.
Buuuuuuuuuuut NOT GOD!!!!
