The mystery of human relationships never ends. You want to get closer, but you can’t. You need to feel accepted and understood, but the distance stays the same. No matter what you do, no matter how hard you try and pray, it seems like things will never change.
Instead of looking for a change between the two of you, seek God’s comfort first. When you receive his peace, you can understand things more clearly. This doesn’t mean you should stop trying, but love demands nothing in return. Keep the door open and wait — this will bring you closer.
Wait for those you love. Wait upon the Lord. Rest in his promises. And when the time comes, he will open up the heavens and pour his loving grace over you.
Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
