- Firstly, will I love/survive chemistry?
- Secondly, will there be major drama?
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.
