I haven't seen you or heard from you in a while.
I've heard some things about what's been going on from other people but wanted to ask you directly...
I've heard some rumors.
I've heard some sad things about what you're going through and how much they loved & were praying for you.
I've heard some others say some distorted things about you & your circumstances, making it sound like they didn't really know or understand in the first place what was going on with you.
So I stopped them in their talking about you & wanted to reach out to you directly.
To check in...
To say, Hey. I love you. You don't have to defend, explain or tell me anything if you don't want to share. I just want you to know I will not listen to others about what they think has happened in your life. I know things may look one way but I know better than to believe what I see before I create thoughts and judgements around those.
I'm pretty sure we all know what it's like for people to think they know all about our circumstances & share it with others & the pain that it causes in us.
I can't imagine how hard it's been for you to walk through so many different changes & the deep pain you must feel.
Lack of trust.
And the whole mass of emotions connected to circumstances.
Just remember my friend, you are seen. You are known. You are loved & I believe in you!
Oh. And one more thing, not everyone listens to & entertains rumors. There are some of us that set aside those things and pray and ask directly.
Please know I totally understand if you don't respond to me.
I know it may be hard to trust again but in time you will. God will bring wonderful caring, seeing, loving people around you to remind you of those things.
So I just wanted to reach out for a moment and say hi and that I love you.
