How to deal?

How do I do this?  How to deal with frustrations and negative emotions toward someone I love...someone who seems less and less like me...more and more like the world....Can they not see the Truth?   Why do they insist on walking and talking less and less of Christ and more and more of the "other"...it is a strange place to be....to be in the middle....to love and to have shared so much life together...but now to find that you may not have so much in common as you once thought....that your paths may no longer run together...or even parallel...yet you can never be completely separated, the pain will be ongoing ....Very hard to know when to speak and when to be silent...all the while battling against the loss you are feeling....the displacement.....
I can only pray that this conclusion is wrong...that I do not see the big picture, that God is at work...that these shifts are not settling into lifestyle...that there is hope and strength in the foundation that has been laid.

Praying that the heart of your friend 'sees' this strong pull towards the world .. and that a yearning is rekindled back into the Makers grasp. In the 'end times' there will be a great falling away. Pray without ceasing.

I know how frustrating that can be, but everything will happen in God's perfect timing. Saying this reminds me of the Truth, because just like you, i also get frustrated with the same issue.

Dear Jada Gigi.
Hang on, never let the devil make you believe you are fighting a lost cause. I don't want to give him that victory. Just when you think everything is lost, that's when the battle is going on on a level we cannot see.
Keep on keeping on, dear sister.
Let your light shine even brighter.
You are the apostle of Christ.
He has made himself dependent of fragile, vulnerable people like you and me.
His grace makes all the difference.

Alas, Amrita, I do not know how to adjust the security settings on my blog. It has been a very long time since I set this up...I will try...

I just saw this post, Cheryl. Deep penetrating thought. I can definitely relate.

May God keep you safe in His heart. Entrust the loved one to Him...never give up interceding. Prayer works wonders!

Just dropped by to give you a hug from across the miles!

Love you
