Good question Anon, and I have another video uploading as we speak, but yes it has happened - it’s a pity because I don’t like the idea of evicting somebody from the space they hold in both my life and heart, but nevertheless it has come to pass before; sometimes through sheer lack of persistence and consistency on both parts, or through their own personal choice.
Neither is easy to live with, as a friendship, no matter how basic or fragile is still a friendship with potential. The other scenario has proved much harder for me though.
Just recently in fact, I had a very dear friend of mine pretty much remove themselves from my life because they felt the Spirit was calling them to shift their focus. At first I was both a little hurt and rejected, trying to think of ways I could convince them to decide otherwise.
It was then that God helped me realise that actually it’s not my place to interfere, you know? This person made a decision to honour God that will set them in good stead for what He is going to do through their lives, and though I do miss them, I have learnt to be content, supportive, and refrain from bitterness or begrudged feelings.
It would seem that I was in their life for a season, and that season has come to an end, for reasons I don’t know but thankfully God does, so I know we’re both in safe hands and I wish her all the best.
I hope in your own situation you can know His understanding and wisdom as to what to do, friend!
