Believe Me, I Know It’s Hard, But We Have To Trust God When He Asks Us To Walk Away From Temporary People

His plan is greater than any of our own desires.

Believe Me, I Know It’s Hard, But We Have To Trust God When He Asks Us To Walk Away From Temporary People

Recently I've been going through a "transition phase" in my life. God has put some new, amazing people into my life, but He's also asked me to walk away from some, too. And believe me, it's been anything but easy.

If you're anything like me, you may find letting go of old relationships or friendships to be extremely difficult. Even when you know that they offer little room for growth and betterment, a little part of you just can't seem to walk away. Sometimes, though, we have to realize that God puts people in our lives just to teach us something, and then He may ask us to continue moving.

Sometimes God gives us temporary people, and that's OK. It's difficult and painful to let go, but we have to trust that God knows better than us, and He wants to do what is best for our lives. So, if He asks you to walk away from a relationship that is no longer able to serve you, you have to trust His judgment.

But like I said, it isn't easy. Sometimes I get frustrated with God. I wonder why He would put such an amazing person in my life only to pull me away from them shortly after. Part of me wants to keep those relationships forever, even if I know that things have changed. A lot of the time I still want to hold onto the past. But God knows when I need to keep moving forward.

I just have to remember that God says to us, "For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future," in Jeremiah 29:11. This passage serves as a reminder to us that God knows what is best for us, and He doesn't want to hurt us. There is a purpose behind every action in our lives, and we have to trust that God will lead us where we are meant to be, with who we are meant to be around.

So, if God is asking you to walk away from someone, trust in His plan. It won't be easy, but it'll be worth it, even if you can't see it now. When we let God take charge of our lives, things will always turn out just as they are meant to.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.
