I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live I live by believing in God’s Son, who loved me and took the punishment for my sins. Galatians 2:20
Don’t sit around feeling sorry for yourself and wondering why your old friends, and sadly, some of your own family don’t spend time with you anymore.
The truth is that when you got to know Jesus personally He sent people and put opportunities in front of you and taught you about miracle living and your whole life changed for the better.
You stopped drinking and doing drugs. Your whole life changed. You started to believe in YOU and that you could do all things with the help of God..
Now you are moving on up! God has promoted you! You have a great job, an education and a decent place to live now! They look at you and it makes them uncomfortable. They no longer have an excuse because every time they see you going from miracle to miracle they know that there is no reason they cannot be a super-achiever too!
It’s easier for them to ignore you then to admit they have no one to blame for their lives being the way that they are but themselves!
So now you know. You haven’t done anything to them. You haven’t offended them. They liked you in that gutter with them.
Praise God that you were lifted out of the mire and your feet were set on solid ground. Pray for them but you can’t go back there, God knows you can never go back there because you are on your way to the promised land. You no longer belong in Egypt!
