I listed out a prayer request on May 9 for my best friend. She has been shutting me out since December, which has hurt me deeply. Despite all of the pain, I still care very much for her. She started dating a guy about a month ago, too.
My update to this is that just in the last few days, we have communicated more. She has even agreed to meet with me later this week so that we can have a serious talk to help me to heal. She does feel bad that she has hurt me, but until we talk, I don't think that she really understands to what extent.
So, first of all please pray that this meeting goes well and will be one that God is pleased with. Please pray for peace and reconciliation between us. Please say an extra prayer for me because this has all bothered me so badly that I have been sick to my stomach and having trouble sleeping lately. I have had enough of these feelings and want to be 100% restored, renewed, and healed!!!
My second request is regarding this new boyfriend. She has known him somewhat through the years, but they only started dating about a month ago. They are already saying that they love each other and have discussed marriage. Due to how it all fell into place, they believe it's God.
My friend suffered years of sexual abuse with many guys and she opened up to me about it and God used our friendship to help her to overcome the pain from the past and feel better about herself.
She normally keeps guys at a distance, as a result, but she's never been this happy with a guy before. I know that God can move quickly in a relationship. I don't doubt that at all. If this is truly God, then what a start to a love story. But my concern is what if this isn't God's choice for her and she is so badly hurt in this relationship that she goes backwards in her recovery.
My biggest struggle about it is that I am trying to reconcile with her first and foremost, but also, that God hasn't revealed to me, yet, if this guy is for her or not. If it is, then I want to offer my full support and do not want to come against this relationship for moving so fast because it would be like coming against the very hand of God, which I certainly do not want to do. However, if this isn't His choice, then I don't want to encourage this relationship in any way. I want it shut down IMMEDIATELY so she doesn't get hurt.
She has already fallen very hard for this guy. I haven't even met him, yet, so I haven't been able to see them together. I think that they are both quite smitten with each other, though. So, please pray for her eyes to be open to God's truth about this relationship, either way, and please pray that I will also know God's desire for them, as well. I don't want to come against something that is God and I don't want to encourage something that isn't. I am having a hard time praying.
Thank you to all that prayed for my original request and thank you to all that will pray for this one. If you have any encouraging or prophetic words for me, then please do post them. God might just use your words to provide the breakthrough that I need. Thank you!
