Drama

Homeschool co-op starts on September 11th. I have a few thoughts about the next school year.
  • Firstly, will I love/survive chemistry?
  • Secondly, will there be major drama?
I'm going to be in teen leadership and there will be some drama queens/kings in there. There is one person in particular that I have trouble with, mostly because this person ignores me and acts like this person owns the whole school. I've grown up with this person and I think I've accidentally hurt this person, so that could be why I've been snubbed. But back to my main concern, how will I act in teen leadership around this person? I have a feeling that I might just ignore that person, but that's not right.

My Mom and I talked about it and she told me a story that a lady missionary told. This missionary said that her daughters were made fun of at their school, so she taught them to pray arrow prayers. Like Nehemiah prayed. So my Mom suggested that I do that when I'm having trouble loving (or even acknowledging) this person that I should pray and ask God to give me love and to help me show it. My Mom said I should wear this person down with love, maybe then I can break through the barriers that have been set up and be friends with this person.

It would be so easy to just ignore the people that hurt us, but that is not what God did. I need to love this person where this person is, not where I want to love but where I need to love, just like Christ loved me.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8
