When you look at purpose, it is defined as the reason something exists. Purpose separates a thing from being useful or useless. One of my favorite authors, Dr.Myles Munroe said “when purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable.” So when people do not know why they exist, everything around them is subject to abuse. This can include anyone in your life. It is natural to want to be loved but when the love is unhealthy, do you stay or go?
One cannot answer this question until you identify whether the type of relationship you are in has purpose. I am not just talking about an Eros love between a man and a woman. God created us to have communication with Him but also with people.
However, after we become familiar with someone over time, the relationship begins to go through seasons. If your relationships with your loved ones or friends have not gone through seasons, how do you know what they’re capable of? This is important because everyone in our life does not have a purpose connected to our destiny.
In high school, I had a best friend who went through many seasons with me but as life changed, the relationship came to an end after ten years. He was there for me when my mother became terminally ill as well as when she passed away. So for months, I fought with God about why my best friend gave up so easily. After self-evaluation, I realized it was because I was no longer in high school and my life now as a Christian had no time for games. God told me that he served his purpose and that purpose was now over. This transition was a bit tough for me but with time the pain faded away and I accepted the need for us to separate.
If you seek God and excel above your past, you will notice behavior changes in people who promised to be with you until the end. I believe that there are faithful and loyal people who can withstand anything, but that takes faith to have and maintain. There are some relationships that may drain you and some are life-teachers. Then there are God-sent people who make you grateful that they are a part of your life. A purposeful relationship is like a marriage. If it means something to you, fight for it. If you constantly question yourself about the person, step back and pray for wisdom. So I encourage you on today to heed the voice of God and the ones he shows you that mean you no good, now is the time to LOOSE THEM & LET THEM GO!
