I met a girl about three years ago (when I was 17), we are very good friends, and over time I have begun to love her more and more… in a more “romantic” way (in the word’s most popular-culturish sense). Yet, things don’t look very good… first she’s not a Christian, second she’s obviously not interested. I am divided… I don’t really know what to do… I can’t have her, but I can’t let her go either! I’m confused, and it hurts deep inside.
I don’t feel as depressed as this always, but now that I am at home all day, preparing for my exams, I think a lot and dream a lot more than usually.
But even in my most unselfish moments, when I don’t care if she will be mine as long as she’s happy, it still hurts that she does not belong to Christ… I want her to spend eternity with him, and it doesn’t even feel like my eternity would be much fun if she isn’t there also (though I know intellectually that it is not so).
gah why does roses always come with thorns!?
Can you just pray for both of us?
