Have You ever have a nightmare that was so real that you wake up and think it is real…
One night I woke up screaming “NO!” , my heart was racing.
I turned over and He was still there sound asleep.
I wrapped my arms around my husband and began to cry. Maybe it was relief that the nightmare was not real and he was still alive… or maybe I was crying , ￼because for a second I realized ￼how life would be without him.
As days have pasted after night I began to ￼think. What would I do if Josh was not here?
Then the real question: Could I survive without him? Hmm..
￼In Acts chapter 20 Paul meets with the Ephesian Elders.
Paul was letting them know that He was going to Jerusalem.
When telling them this they started to grieve , because they knew they would never see Paul again.
We do not always know when we are no longer going to see someone.
Sometimes we grow apart from people.
Sometimes life gets in way of our relationships
We then wonder why God placed them in our lives for just a season.
In the story Paul did not go there just to tell the elders that he was going to Jerusalem. He also went there to give them guidance on how to live for God.
People can be in your life just to give you guidance for a season. The problem with that is we become dependent on these people.
We may become more dependent on them than we are with God.
With every problem we may face we go to these people seeking answers , but ￼￼￼￼￼￼ ￼￼do we seek answers from God first?
We are so impatient when it comes to waiting on a answer.
We want the answer right then and there.
I became dependent on my friends and my husband . I constantly ask them what should I do ,because I can not stand the unknown. ￼￼￼
￼These people do not belong to me… what if God decided to remove them for my life? Am I committed enough to God to keep moving forward?
