“Sometimes God makes better choices for us than we could have ever made for ourselves.” (Jennifer Hudson)
Many times I’ve sent messages to “friends” on Facebook from my local area whom I’ve thought seemed like pretty interesting people from the many things they’ve posted. I’ve often asked if they wanted to meet up for a coffee or dinner sometime, as I’m always looking to expand my circle of friendships. Plenty of times I’ve received responses they’d be down for that and would get back to me, yet just as often I never hear back from them again, even when I’ve attempted to reach out a few times.
I’ve gotten so frustrated when this has happened, with the lack of integrity of people not getting back to me, yet I realized quite recently that maybe God keeps doing for me what I can’t do for myself, which is keeping doors closed that don’t need to be opened, to people that maybe aren’t in alignment with my Highest Good and spiritual goals?
My partner has often told me that I’ve made far too many attempts to connect with people he has deemed as unhealthy for me and maybe he’s right. Which quite possibly is the very reason why God might be helping to keep doors closed to people I attempt to friend.
In the same breath, it also seems that God has made room for various doors to open to new friendships as well, as has been the case with two new individuals in recent months. Both have come to appreciate my quirkiness and intensity and both have helped to bring some humor back into my life, something I so desperately have needed and wanted.
In light of that, this is why I tend to believe that God probably has a lot more involvement in our lives when we let Him, as had been evident since asking God to not allow people to become a part of my life anymore if they’re only going to lead me away from my Highest Good.
Overall, to my ego it’s been quite humbling seeing more doors close or ones that never get opened, than seeing doors get opened. But to my Spirit, well, let’s just say I’ve been thankful for those God has allowed to enter my life, because they’ve truly blessed my spiritual journey thus far in a lot of ways, something I’m guessing wouldn’t have happened to many of the attempts I’ve made to start new friendships that never went anywhere.
Dear God, thank you for all the doors you helped to close that I attempted to keep open with friends, both new and old, that in the end probably wouldn’t have been for my Highest Good. And thank you for the few doors you have allowed to either open or remain open with friends, as each of those have truly blessed my life beyond measure.
Peace, love, light, and joy,
