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.
