Jessica and God

Jessica and God “Friends”

Jessica and God “Friends”


Proverbs 12:26
“The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.”
Good friends are watchful.
Friendship is God’s gift to us, but not all friendships He approves.

I have never really had more than one really close friend…
Not the kind that you talk to every day.
I have always enjoyed my relationships this way.

I have also never had
A lifelong best friend…
I sometimes wonder if this is normal?

Not every relationship in my life has come to a dead end though.
Most come to a fork in the road.
This is when we typically continue on our journeys
While maintaining the friendship once the purpose is fulfilled.
Only from afar.

I have also walked away from friendships once my spirit no longer feels peace in them.
Even though it’s different than most,
I have enjoyed living life this way.

I have always preferred connections that hold meaning and purpose
Over relationships that just fill time and space in my life.
Putting more energy into loving one person
has always allowed me to develop relationships on a deeper level
Then if I had a group of lifelong friends to spread myself around.

My spirit comes alive when trust and intimacy leads to growth
And Synergy.
It’s like no other feeling in the world.

Living my entire life watching others enjoy their big groups of friends
Who they’ve known since kindergarten
Has made me wonder if I am doing this friendship thing wrong.

I’ve learned a few things…
Not everyone is “for” us.
People are not meant to stay in our lives forever.
Friendships are not ours to keep.
God friends are gifts to help us get to where
We are meant to be.

We are here to serve each other…
To be vessels for God to use.

God calls people to be in our lives
so they can make us better and stronger.
We are not meant to hang on to these relationships
Past their expiration date.
Because when we do
We only get in His way.

So now,
I don’t wonder if I am normal.
The truth is that I’ve never been alone.
God’s always been with me.

I have stopped wondering about who will stay
Or for how long.
I simply enjoy the time while it lasts
Knowing that the next phase of my journey
Is just around the corner.

Jessica and God “Love Your Neighbor”

Jessica and God “Love Your Neighbor”

“Jesus tells the parable of the lost sheep to show that the Kingdom of God is accessible to all, even those who were sinners or strayed from God’s path.
He uses the example of a shepherd (God) who has 100 sheep and one goes missing.
The shepherd leaves the 99 others and searches high and low for the lost sheep.
Jesus stresses that when the shepherd finds the lost sheep he rejoices over it more than the 99 who did not go astray.
This is how God will rejoice when a sinner returns to Him.”
(Matthew 18: 10–14)
Everyone’s journey with the Lord is different….
It is not our job to judge our brothers and sisters.
It is our job to love them just like our Father God loves us…
Because the only way
to lead His
Lost children
back to Him…
Is to let His unconditional love shine through us.

God always knows better

When I was in high school I remember how heartbreaking it was to end a relationship before I was ready for it to be over.

Even when I was the unhappy one


When they weren’t willing to do the work…

It somehow felt like I had failed.

I also remember 

how grateful I was 

after enough time had passed…. 


my emotional attachment would dissipate… 


I was able to see 

clearly again, 

that my life was actually better without that person.

Stay Lit

I’ve been hanging on to some anger and hurt for the past few days.
I allowed the enemy to get his foot in the door of my heart.
The Bible tells us to go directly to our brother or sister when we have a problem,
but many of us do not do this….
When did we become so scared of talking to each other…
Being wrongly accused is not an easy weight to bare,
it hurts like heck
when you know your heart does not resemble the way that it’s being depicted.
It’s even more difficult when you live a life of honesty and intentionality.
