Shared by Apostle James R Winfree Sr, Making The Truth Of Jesus Christ Known:


Yes, leaving a friend is one thing and there’s a lot of advice out there for doing it, but what about a family break-up?

Most of us are not in a position to “just leave” nor do we feel we want to, or that it’s the right thing to do. So what do we do when toxic family members are literally trying to ruin our lives even our God gave hopes, dreams, and visions and ministry! How do we deal with the feeling of obligation, guilt, confusion, and heartache?


It is important to note that Not everyone’s family is there for them to lean on, to call on or to go home to. Not every family is built on the premise of interconnectedness, support, and stability. Sometimes family simply means that you share a bloodline. That’s all. Some families build you up and some suck your energy dry and treat others better than you and even help and support them, while at the very same time calling you their family.


There are relationships and friendships that just aren’t fixable, this includes family. There are situations that you can endure for only so long before you’ve outgrown them. There may come a crucial time when you have to separate yourself from your family in order to do what God called and chosen you to do.....


In many respects, the way we were treated by our family ends up being the same treatment we offer those we dislike or even hate.


Often times the signal and energy we put out into the world is similar to or exactly what we have experienced by others. And for most of us, this influential force has been our family. Think about it. Think about just how much the interaction, or lack thereof, from our family, sets the tone for the quality of energy we give off during our lifetime.


What is the unacceptable treatment in a family?


Rejection, abandonment, not taking the time to get to know you or to be in your life, making you feel unwelcome, someone being competitive or hypercritical of you, pressuring or forcing you to be someone you are not, blaming, ostracizing, manipulating, belittling, neglecting and abusing you…the list goes on and on and on. These types of experiences can make a deep imprint on our hearts and inhibit our ability to react without them being present in the back of our mind’s. Our reactions to life become skeptical, doubtful, fearful and we more often see the dark instead of the light in both people and situations.


These negative experiences can jade us for a lifetime unless we learn to do whatever it takes to get ourselves into a positive nurturing environment and replace negatively influenced reactions with positive ones. I gave my life to Jesus and put my very own personal family members in the hands of God Himself and ask His to work it all our for my good in Jesus Name.


What are the signs indicating that you could use a break or change?


Your own health and mental well-being is damaged

You feel emotionally, physically and/or spiritually injured

The relationships with your immediate family/spouse/partner is suffering

There is violence, physical and/or emotional abuse

There is substance abuse

There are constant struggles for power

There are unnecessary distrust and disrespect

Yes to all of us who are not as kissers or people pleasers, No we are Not religious, But we really do love and serve our Lord and Blessed Savior Jesus Christ, and remember just what our Lord said? If they have done it too me, they will also do it to you, they hated me without any cause and they will also hare you without any cause, Yes, remember Is 53, and  Jesus said He was sent to His very own and they rejected, Lied on, did not support Him and even put Him to death while at the very same time were saying they loved God His Father. WOW!! So my brothers and my sisters in the faith you and I are not alone, we're in Awesome company. Amen.



We Are Leading All Believers And Souls To Jesus Christ Our Blessed Father.
