Oh I still ponder how offense crept in and envy coupled with life’s storms unraveled the bond we once shared
Oh I still believe that one pressed in to Him at all costs and one chose to become bitter by the hand they were dealt
Oh I still mourn the happier memories but also have come to realize many were not as authentic and genuine as they appeared
Oh I still pray that they will take off their performance pretend perfect masks they wear and admit they took Satan’s bait and get free
Oh I still count the blessings of what I have now gained through the hard lesson that this pain caused me
Oh I still choose to forgive them fully knowing hurting people hurt people and some choose opinions more than their obedience to God
Oh I still praise God and put Him first over anyone and everything, trusting His protection that comes through rejection
Oh I still would not change a thing….
Oh I still know that not everyone can go where God calls us and some have to be left behind so that we can truly learn to fly.
