As we walk through life, people move in and out of our circle. God uses our circumstances to teach us to be like Him, even in a loss.
1 Peter 5:7 – Cast all your cares on Him for he cares for you.
★ Difficult times make us want to give up
★ Giving up is a result of anxiety
★ Anxiety can be a result of broken trust
★ Broken trust leads to lack of forgiveness
Difficult time in my life: Losing someone close to me because of their own brokenness.
● How do you help? You can only give them God’s protection by showing them. You can’t make the situation go away.
○ They may not want help. They may choose to be distant, which causes you hurt.
●This makes it hard to forgive the toxic friendship or relative.
○ Later, you will realize that sometimes being distant is better. Sometimes people come in seasons to help us,
Sometimes it is to help them. If a person chooses to grow apart, just trust in God that you have made some difference in their lives.
★ This is why 1 Peter 5:7 is so important. Cast all your cares because God does care for us. We know that in difficult times, He will take care of us.
