Can We Talk – Homework Week #2, Day #5

What a powerful lesson! Before I even finished the 5 Ps on the first set of scriptures, I was having a heart-to-Heart conversation with the Lord about my relationships with both believers and unbelievers. I candidly expressed my desire to honor Him with the relationships in my life, and my inability to determine whether some of those individuals really are believers. I also know that I don’t always act like a believing disciple of Christ, but I never want to be mistaken for a non-believer.

This subject of relationships is one of longsuffering contemplation for me. Shortly after I became a Christian, I moved across the country with my family and made “friends” during my senior year of high school, but none of those relationships lasted. I have accumulated several friends over the years who I know I can ask for prayer and they will, but I don’t see them. We seem to rally around each other when the physical and spiritual battle intensifies and we need support.

Lord, I want You to be the Orchestrator of the relationships that You desire in my life. I ask that You mold my heart and give me discernment so there is no doubt that these are relationships You have ordained. I lay this area of my life open to You, Father. Prepare me in the meantime to be the partner that You want me to be in this relationship. Then, in Your perfect time, make it happen. In Jesus’ name, I ask this. Amen.
