@jzbreeland I too have seen these very REAL struggles. I came to realize that when ever I allow someone to affect me emotionally, to the point where I want to do something to them physically, I have allowed that person/thing to get between me and God. After I acknowledged how much I contributed to my current circumstances, it was only then that I was able to forgive my ex wife and move on. It didn’t take me long because I knew what God was doing. He has to remove the old inorder to bring in the new. The serpent was the first to invade this world with deception, and who did he deceive?
Not to just go all biblical on you, but the scripture say
““Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”
Matthew 10:16 NKJV
“My son, do not forget my law, But let your heart keep my commands; For length of days and long life And peace they will add to you. Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem In the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;”
Proverbs 3:1-5 NKJV
Be encouraged sir. Trouble doesn’t last always. Sometimes we try to hold on to people/things that have no divine purpose in our lives. Where God is getting ready to take you he knows you don’t need the baggage you have. He has new life for you, a whole new world for you sir, one that is plagued with prosperity and business success. Learn to be patient. We want what we want, but often times what we want, don’t want us. I am not speaking from a book I am speaking from experience.
Hit me directly if you would like. I assure you earth has no sorrow that our God can’t heal. Yes, it sounds so easy to say when you are not sitting in it, but I assure you that if your relationship with him is right; the outcome won’t be what you had in mind but it will be the best outcome for “everyone” involved.
