 Facing our challenges head-on!
Challenges Women Face

June 16, 2017

Dear Julie:
I’ve been with someone for eight years. I left where I call home to move to Georgia to help my boyfriend out with his grandmother. I understand that no one is perfect and we all have flaws. But he has treated me very wrong since I’ve been here with him. He has gotten worse, attitude and all.
I just pray. I do love him and we aren’t together right now but we do see and keep in touch with each other. I have no family here and I like it here as long as we are not having storms. –Stormy Weather
Dear Stormy Weather:
Thank you for sharing your concerns with me. I’m sorry you’re going through these storms, especially after you left everything behind to move to Georgia, to help out someone who is now treating you badly.
Is it possible you misread his intentions? Maybe he didn’t intend for you to follow him to Georgia. Just sayin’ because I really don’t know.
Is it possible for you to return home? Get some distance between you and your boyfriend? They say absence makes the heart grow fonder. Perhaps in time he’ll realize you sacrificed a lot to help him out and he’s acting very ungrateful. You aren’t together now anyway and you can still keep in touch by phone.
May I pray for you? “Father God, please help her know what to do. Help her recognize that if she is a Christian, she belongs to you and is, therefore, a daughter of the King of Kings. Help her to respect herself and to expect respect from others. Help her to love all people but to reserve unconditional love for the man she marries. Give her wisdom and grace and comfort and peace. I ask this in Jesus’ wonderful and matchless name. Amen.”
God bless you, dear one. Julie
