What do we do when a significant relationship falls apart?

1. Don’t allow it to crash your life

  • When a relationship falls apart it doesn’t mean we have to fall apart!
  • Stop second guessing yourself
  • If only I had…__________ 
    • Handled things differently
    • Been more aware
    • Not made such a big deal about money 
    • Not lost my temper
    • Been willing to compromise 
    • Been more understanding


2. Don’t burn the relational bridge unless there is a history of abuse and manipulation.  

  • We need to forgive ourselves and the other person and move on.


3. Walk it off

  • Realize that some friendships are for life and others are for a season.

4. Hold out for future restoration.

  • Ecclesiastes 3:11 He has made everything beautiful in it’s time.
  • Time not only heals, but it reveals.

2 Timothy 4:11 Only Luke is with me. Bring John Mark with you when you come, for he will be helpful to me in my ministry.
