This is what the Lord says: “Bad things will happen to those who put their trust in people. Bad things will happen to those who depend on human strength. That is because they have stopped trusting the Lord. They are like a bush in a desert where no one lives. It is in a hot and dry land. It is in bad soil. That bush does not know about the good things that God can give.
Have you ever trusted someone so much that when they let you down you did not know if you would survive? I have and it was not pretty. What if that person is your spouse, your parents, your kids or that person who you always gave your all too! Yup them too. People are fragile just like you and hurt people, hurt people. Sometimes we look at people and only see what we want. We see them as we want them to be and we ignore those traits that we don’t want to admit they have. How many of you have that friend you love, but they sleep with many of their friends/acquaintance men/women? You know they lie all the time but Not To You? You slept with that man while he was married then he left his wife but cheats on you? We all know and love people who are damaged so don’t be surprised when their damaged spirit damages something in you.
If you love them, love them! No excuses because that’s how God loves you. We all fall short and we hurt the ones we love because that’s who is closest to us.
“But those who trust in the Lord will be blessed. They know that the Lord will do what he says. They will be strong like trees planted near a stream that send out roots to the water. They have nothing to fear when the days get hot. Their leaves are always green. They never worry, even in a year that has no rain. They always produce fruit. “Nothing can hide its evil as well as the human mind. It can be very sick, and no one really understands it. But I am the Lord, and I can look into a person’s heart. I can test a person’s mind and decide what each one should have. I can give each person the right payment for what they do. (Jeremiah 17:5-10 ERV)
