Where 2 or 3 meet in my name...

I shall be there with them. Matthew 18:20

I'm breaking free from some relationships that have become unhealthy. I knew when I shared (with the people who love me) some of the details of the unhealthy interactions, I had to be prepared for the feedback to "Run, don't walk, to the nearest exit."

So, as part of my moving-on, turning-over-a-new-leaf, reinventing-of-myself, I'm taking a fresh look at all of my relationships. I'm pruning my vine of branches that aren't productive, that are draining me of energy, leaving me malnourished. By trusting God, I am filled with joy and peace.

I haven't exactly figured out the words I'll use to disentangle myself. I'll choose my words carefully, prayerfully. Since I seek God's wisdom, I must obey. Above all, I must watch my tongue. I must NOT be tempted to validate my actions. I trust that I'm doing the right thing.

And, I put myself before you as a member of the body of Christ, and I ask you to meet me here, for where we are gathered, there He will be also. Although I'm walking away from relationships, I have found new relationships in the network of bloggers. Believers who nourish me and those who are hungry for the bread that satisfies. I pray for this community of faith.

"May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer." Psalm 19:14
