{November 26, 2008}   Coping With A Broken Heart

You can tell when the enemy is tempting you, or at least I can.  I have not gone out to the clubs, nor to a pub.  I haven’t gone any where to hang out, you know the places singles go to meet other singles, nope I have not gone.  But it seems the men have just come out of the wood work, literally.  Some old, some new, but I have not fallen for the tricks.  Nope I do not even have an online dating profile.  I thought about it at first when Jase broken it off with me by telling me he is dating someone else and didn’t think it was right to continue to talk to me.  At first I was angry, why didn’t he show me that kind of respect when it was he and I.  Then I realized that may be I was just a friend to him and nothing more.  Funny how a girl can take a certain behavior from a guy and read more into it.  I do love him, nor do I understand why.  I think about our friendship and ….well who knows what God is up to.  That darn free will tends to take us down different paths, but I choose to stay faithful to the Son and the Father. ( Jesus and God Almighty)  In the book of John chapter 14, is where you will find Jesus telling us that the Father will send the Counselor as his representative meaning the Holy Spirit.  He will teach us everything and will remind us of everything Jesus has said. 

We are to worship the Father in spirit and in truth.  Through the Holy Spirit Jesus will guide me.

(NLT) John 16:13-14 "When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all truth.  He will not be presenting his own ideas; he will be telling you what he has heard.  He will tell you about the future.  He will bring me glory by revealing to you whatever he receives from me."

(NAS) John 16-13-14 "But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.  He shall glorify Me; for He shall take of Mine, and shall disclose it to you."

I like how Jesus says right after this that all things the Father has are His, and how the Holy Spirit takes of His and will disclose it to me, to you, to all who believe. 

Hearing the Voice of the Lord is not easy and as Pastor Franklin says, "discerning the voice of God takes practice."  I tell you the enemy has tried to make me feel like and idiot or a fool, but I do not.  I still believe in my heart that I will move and my house will sale, but all in His timing.  I still believe that Jase was one Jesus brought across my path.  I could see wonderful things happening in both our lives, mostly the wonderful things Christ could have done through our uniting.  But we are given free will.  Jesus will not force anyone to obey or submit or to follow or to believe.  Jesus will still be in Jase’s life and in my life.  He will still live through us for we belong to Him.  He will still use me to teach the kids in Sunday school and Jase to teach the youth, of course at two different churches.  I knew from the beginning of our friendship back in 2006 that the enemy was hard at work in keeping our friendship at a distance.  Later in 2008, earlier this year, when our friendship began to get close, I failed to recognize the enemy stepping into to cause a wall between us.  A wall that has not only prevented us from becoming closer to eachother, but has even seemed to break the friendship entirely.  Was it our own free will and our own human sinfulness or was it a trick the enemy used to tear apart what God was bring together?  All I know is this.  My future is in His hands.  Only God has the power to break that wall, to open the door of communication between us, and to fill the emptiness in my heart.  I can only get my self-worth from my Creator, not any man on this earth.  I know I sit hear today with every sin wiped away and hold no bitterness or hardship against anyone who has hurt me, betrayed me, or even those who continue to seek to hurt me.  I live to glorify the Lord, and in that must remain obedient and faithful.  Yes, I may fail, but I try not to.  Also the reason I stay in a repentance state, recognizing where and when I fail learning what I must learn turning to Jesus with a repentant heart.

Luke 11:2-4 "He said, "This is how you should pray: ‘Father, may your name be honored .  May your Kingdom come soon.  Give us our food day by day.  And forgive us our sins, just as we forgive those who have sinned against us.  And don’t let us yield to temptation.’"

I am content and joyful, not necessarily jumping with glee but joyful for I know He is with me.
