If I've said it once, I've said it twice... oh how true.

Yes, I see your point.
Yes, I see their point.

I feel that there is both right and wrong streaming out of this situation from every angle. I feel there is so much miscommunication and misunderstanding that neither side really knows what has happened or what is completely correct and false.

Yes, I understand your pain.
Yes, I understand their pain.

I feel hurt. I know that pain runs deep, I know it takes a lot to heal. But so much of this pain is not necessary for anybody if people would believe in one another and the power of God over this situation.

Yes, I see you are right and they are wrong.
Yes, I see they are right and you are wrong.

There is so much involved in this situation that not one person can take the blame. Nobody has the right to say they are the victim. Remember the plank in your own eye before you point out the speck in your brother or sister's eye --- and yes, you are still brothers and sisters.

Yes, I still love you.
Yes, I still love them.

Michelle, I think you need to take a breather, step back, and just detox. I know this is an awful situation for you. I know you have the weight of both sides of the issue pressing down on you and making it hard to breathe. Just know that, although it is hard to see right now, God is in control of this entire situation and His hand is upon it. There will be hurt and wounds from it, but there will also be healing and growth. I know that nobody really understands it all, but God DOES and He is the author of it all.

Nobody should be placing you in the middle of this and nobody should be pressing their side on you. I understand that your heart is on both sides, but just believe that God is in control. I am praying that he gives you the peace that passes all understanding, the comfort that only He can give, and the wisdom to disengage if needbe, or to actively participate if needbe. Just listen to His still voice to guide you.

We (Mark, Cassie, and I) love you and are praying for you and want to support you in whatever way we can. Hang in there. Believe it or not, it will get easier as time heals the wounds of both sides and as God intervenes.

~Devon (and Cassie Leigh)

I'm not sure what your situation is, but I can certainly relate to what you've written. God bless you!
