You Are For Me - Kari Jobe

One of my favourite songs of all time. It's so powerful, because it's the truth.

The topic of faithfulness came up sometime this week. God is faithful, He is always faithful, He never leaves us nor forsake us, amen!

Faithfulness is a fruit of the Spirit. So as I was pondering on faithfulness and relationships, somehow I began to let bitterness set in, because I started to feel that many people around me are less than what I expected, or that people have abandoned me or ditched me for other new friends. This bitterness grew into resentment towards just about every friend who may have slighted me in the slightest bit the past few days.

But bitterness just eats you up inside while the object of your resentment feels nothing. The more bitter you get, the more you stay away from people, the more people stay away from you, and thus the more bitter you become. I know it, I've gone through it so many times in the past. But then when you realise that it's not that people abandon you (although some do like a certain bitch I know very well) but sometimes a misunderstanding here and there causes distress right. The best thing to do is to look up, look ahead, thank God for all the great people you have in your life, and move forward, and release all burdens and grudges.

Simple as that. But in practice, it's hard. Sometimes people wrong you in the wrongest sense, and sometimes it's hard to forgive let alone forget. But I know a really close friend who can help you with that. His name is Jesus.
