Situations and Sendoffs

A few days ago I mentioned a situation I was dealing with, that I really hoped wasn’t the case. Unfortunately, today came the evidence that really strongly points in this person’s direction. And now I’m sitting here feeling helpless, wondering what to do. Do I approach this person and try to help them through their problem, knowing full well that if I reveal it, it could potentially damage some relationships? Or do I leave it alone and hope that God will work through the situation and help this person by Himself?

I honestly have no idea what to do. I really don’t think I could approach this person and point out what they’ve done. But I also know that I can’t just sit here and do nothing while it continues. I’m trapped between not being able to do anything, and knowing I have to anyways, and right now it’s really bothering me. The only thing that I’m not powerless to do is pray for them – pray that God would work in the situation and heal it. But it doesn’t seem like it’s enough, though I’ve always been told about the “power of prayer.” Somehow it just doesn’t absolve me of responsibility, although the only reason this responsibility was thrust on me was because I was in the position to find out about it.

Piecing Together Fragments

On today, more than all other days, I am at a loss for words. I know I’ve said that before numerous times, but it’s very true today. If I could accurately explain myself, I would, but I’m not sure that I really can. I guess I’ll make an attempt, but I can’t say too much just because of what it’s about.

I guess I’ll start by simply saying that I may have possibly found out something about someone that I really wish I didn’t find out. It started a couple of weeks ago when I started getting a few clues, but today I’ve found some better “evidence” – not that I’m launching an investigation or anything, but I need to know the truth. It’s certainly not concrete proof or anything, and I really hope that it doesn’t turn into that, but I’m afraid that it might. I can’t say much more than that, because that just wouldn’t be right, but let’s just say that I’m hoping and praying that it isn’t true. It’s possible that it’s all a mistake or an accident, and that’s what I really hope it is – but considering that this is the third or fourth time that I’ve been alerted to its possibility, I’m not so sure that I can assume it’s a mistake. Now I just have to sit tight and wait for something else to show itself – but above all other things, I don’t want to approach the person about it. That…Continue Reading
