When Relationships Fall Apart

     One of the hardest things in life to deal with is when our relationships fall apart.  It's natural to question everything.  Who's right?  Who's wrong?  Why is this happening?  Did I make a mistake?  Were there warning signs? Should I have seen this coming?  What now? Can I trust anyone?  I've experienced this on numerous occasions in my life.  I've had friendships come apart at the seams after years of being close.

     I've seen many people go through long drawn out seasons of doubt, depression, anger, low self-esteem and loneliness due to the "breakup" of a relationship.  Personally I've gone through those same issues and I was given little to no good advice.  Many times the advice given is to "just forget" that person.  The impression is that you get someone in your life to replace them.  After my experiences, I definitely don't think like that.  I believe when relationships fall apart you should do a little soul-searching.  I don't think you should try to take your mind off of the broken place you are in emotionally and try to find another relationship to get into. That mindset only perpetuates pain.  Nothing is gained and so much is lost.

Who is GOD?

So many times as we walk through life with all it's many ups and downs -- all the problems we face -- we tend to not elevate ourselves towards God but instead bring HIM down to our level.  

We start believing that God feels the same way about people that we do and vice versa... In our minds, God becomes judgmental, erratic, unloving, only interested in a list of DO's and DON'Ts.  We think God is vindictive, mean, withholding good from us.  Or worse, we see HIM as totally ignoring us as if we don't exist.  We see HIM confined and restricted by the same faults that humanity is confined and restricted by.

BUT GOD is GOD.

HE is SUPREME.

There is NO ONE who is EQUAL to GOD.

There is NONE OTHER like HIM.

GOD is PERFECTION.
That means that HE can become NO BETTER than he already is.

GOD is ALL KNOWING.
That means that HE ALREADY knows everything.
If at anytime HE needed to know something more it would mean HE COULD NOT BE GOD.
HE would CEASE TO EXIST because HE would not be PERFECTION.

HE is present EVERYWHERE.
If there is anywhere where GOD is not present then HE CANNOT BE GOD.
GOD IS NOT LIMITED BY TIME AND SPACE!

GOD is ALL POWERFUL.
BUT HE CANNOT do EVERYTHING.
