If someone I have had a friendship with begins to withdraw their fellowship from me, I sense a deep sadness in my spirit.
I wonder if I have done or said something to offend them. God is faithful to show me when I have been at fault and I have to go and ask for forgiveness and try to reconcile.
Other times, if I haven’t done anything wrong, I feel like I need to go to them and do what I can to make things right.
When I do that before the Lord wants me to go to them, I have oftentimes made things worse. I am in need of His guidance in those situations because my relationship with Him and my friends are more important to me than anything else.
I pray He will guide me to accept my responsibility at the right time and in the right way.
