Day 10 ~ I am thankful for restored relationships

This tenth day of thankfulness is one that I am so blessed to write about. I never thought these words would be coming out of my mouth (or typed on my blog), but they are!!! What a blessing!!!

There are times in our lives when relationships between friends and family become strained. This happens for various reasons, but the main one being – we’re human. Over the past few years, several relationships in my life became strained or even broken completely. It was heartbreaking for me to go through this, as sometimes I didn’t even understand why. Sometimes the reasons seemed silly and insignificant to me, yet must have been the total opposite for the other person. And sometimes, life happened and things just fell apart.

It was nearly three years ago now that I began praying for peace about a certain relationship that had been not only strained, but broken for many years. I pleaded with God to restore this relationship for months until finally one day I felt Him telling me to give it up. Not to give up on the relationship, but to give up asking for restoration. Instead I felt the Holy Spirit prompting me to pray for hearts to be changed and eyes to be open – no matter how long it took. I also felt the Holy Spirit telling me to “let him handle it”. That I no longer needed to worry about it. So that day I changed my prayer.

It wasn’t until about 2 months ago that that particular relationship began mending. An incident happened that opened the eyes of the other party and the Holy Spirit continued to work in them. I was beyond blessed to receive the call from this person and hear their voice in a tender, loving way again. My God is a God of restoration and of promise. I am so glad I listened to His leading and allowed Him to do the work. Now, HE gets ALL the glory!!!! Praise God for restored relationships.
