"It Will Take Time"

"It Will Take Time"

I had a friend once early in high school who I had a falling out with. My attempts to be friends again were ignored or actively rejected. We were all part of the same friend group too. It was really hard and I hated it, but whenever we were in the same area we just kind of ignored each other. I guess I was grateful that we could at least make that bit work, but I knew I didn’t want that to be the way it was forever.

Feeling really down about it one night I prayed to God for help. I just wanted our friendship back and I didn’t know what to do. I knew I couldn’t force them, and I knew God wouldn’t either. I honestly didn’t know what God could do. Maybe it just felt good talking to someone who I knew loved me. During that prayer though I felt peaceful, like my worries were gone. I got a clear feeling that it will get better, but it will take time. I felt like God was going to help me through this, and make a miracle happen. Shockingly, I felt like it would be one year from now. I thanked God and held on to that promise.

One year later, this person and I started talking again and our friendship healed. I won’t ever forget God’s help, even if it was just to give me comfort and strength until the healing He knew would happen came.
