God is our best and closest friend. He’s the one we go to with all of our problems. But what about when that problem is with one of his other kids?
It’s easy to feel like you have the most special place in God’s heart - and you do. You really do. But the thing about that place in His heart is that it’s big enough for everyone, even the girl who hurt your feelings or said something mean. The girl you’re jealous of or the girl who started dating your ex-boyfriend. The girl who makes you feel inferior or the girl who doesn’t give you the time of day. He loves her just like He loves you.
As I was talking to God about my day and spilling my heart out, I heard Him say, “She needs me differently than you.” The girl next to you? She has a different issue in her life than you do. You both need God equally. You need the same amount of grace. But you need it in a different place.
Next time you have a problem with someone and want God to take your side, remember that He’s on her team too because you’re all on the same team. And remember that she has her own set of struggles, different than yours. So love her just like you know your Jesus does and give her grace in that place.
