    To approach a friend with whom I have a serious disagreement takes all the courage I can muster. I am fearful of being criticized or even verbally attacked again. If I discipline myself to hold Christ’s hand very tightly, as a fearful child would hold her parent’s hand, then perhaps I can stay open enough to listen deeply to what my friend is saying about her own fears beneath the harsh words. Perhaps then I’ll be able to respond from a place of compassion and love, and the damage to our friendship may begin to heal. God had put a great challenge and opportunity before me. Please pray for me that I have the faith to overcome, receive and grow.
