Not Everyone Is Ready For Your Walk

The Calling of the First Disciples

Matthew 4: 18 As Jesus was walking beside the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon called Peter and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the lake, for they were fishermen. 19. “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.” 20. At once they left their nets and followed him.

People come in and out of our lives. Sometimes we feel with all our heart
that these people love and support us. They will even give you advice saying things like, “I know you are suppose to do this and that.”

But when you step out to do it, they may turn against you. Maybe because they are facing hardships, and you are they dart board, (Praise God, if I can or have been someone’s dart board, I am glad I was there for them to have someone that they can let steam off, or even maybe blame for their hurt,) or maybe because they cannot understand you taking a step of faith, really there is not a good answer to this question. I have found out that is just life.

I can tell you that people will come in and out of your lives. Maybe they are there for just a Season. Some will understand your new step of Faith, others will not. This is because they may not be strong enough in their walk to understand your new walk.

Life doesn’t always go exactly as we expect it to. Sometimes we find out that there is something or someone in our life that isn’t the best for us.

Why am I telling you this, because I want you to know that when you step out to follow Jesus, not everyone will be with you. Even those whom have said they are for you, but they are really not. And this can cause hurt if you let it. Which can lead to unforgiveness on your part, which can hinder your new walk, your new journey.

I know it is hard, but, embracing change and making difficult decisions to walk away in love from a situation and people that is no longer serving you can be the first step towards success in your personal journey. Get it, your personal journey, not theirs.

“Remember, not everyone is ready for your new journey. So, to not try to take them with you. ‘Pat Aman’”

The disciples, they left they’re businesses, families, and friends to follow Jesus. They probably had friends and family who thought they had lost their minds. People who even laughed at them, and said they would never make it.

I know it was hard for them, but they knew that Jesus had a task, a ministry for them. They knew that they were men with an assignment straight from the heart of God. They knew they would get talked about,
lied on, and even face death for Christ sake, but they still followed their Master.

The same is for us as well today. When you make a commitment to do God’s Work, remember that you will face challenges. And one of the hardest challenge is to forgive them that hurt you, during your new transition. But once you jump that
obstacle, you will make it. For forgiveness is the key to love, and love is the key to success.

Blessings, Love, and Prayers,
