so i’m sure a lot of you out there have been through a break up in a relationship and if you haven’t then that’s great, you haven’t felt that sadness that comes from break ups. i’ll tell you a little bit about one, it’s usually one sided and even if you’re the one that wanted it, it still hurts. there is usually a lot of tears, confusion, anger and probably some pettiness involved. they are the worst honestly, but after a few days you get your smile back, you’re laughing, and with more time (&Jesus) you begin to heal. you start enjoying everything how you used to.
there are more ways to experience a break up then breaking up with someone you’re in a relationship with. although they hurt so bad, you need them. you need to break up with friends / addictions whatever it might be that is pulling you away from Christ. i’m gonna be honest and tell you that it’s hard and you’re not going to want to do it.
hear me out in these last paragraphs.
“Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.”John 15:2
whatever that branch might be that’s holding you back from being the most prosperous spiritual tree you can be, break up with it and cut it off.
it’s gonna take lots of prayer, reading and time. you can do it. if God can send his only son to die on the cross for you & if Christ is WILLING to do that for you, you can do this for them. don’t get discouraged, it will get better.
