I never used to pay much attention before. But about a year ago, i had some friends and something happened that made me re-evaluate that friendship. it made me look inwards and take a hard critical look at myself.
I discovered i was changing. I was morphing into a character my environment was creating. I was becoming influenced by the words i was hearing, the attitudes of those i was hanging out with and i had over time, put on a cloak of criticism and condemnation.
I didn’t like it. so i stepped away. i kept my distance and started to learn how to let God clean me up and detoxify me. i didn’t understand how deep it was until recently when the lord started to talk to me again about how our associations can either cover us in grace or take us out of the covering.
