I find myself to be extremely relationship driven.
Sometimes to the point of suffering and feeling extreme rejection.
As a woman, mother, child of God, I desire positive relationships with those around me.
Yet, at what cost?
I have to always remind myself that my relationship to God, my husband, and then my children come first. Those are the most important. Next comes other family and believers in Christ.
Next is everyone else.
There are some relationships that need to end.
I grieve for those just as I believe God does for those that reject a relationship with Him.
I will pray for those that reject and persecute me for who I am and who I am not.
But I must not compromise who God has made me.
