2 Chronicles 7:14
God is a restorer, even when it comes to friendships. Friendships often come and go, but sometimes, you might find yourself in a place where you think about things like this: “What ever happened to our friendship? We used to be super close, but now we hardly ever talk. I wonder if what we had could ever be mended?” When you find yourself thinking about things like this, it may seem like whatever closeness you had with that friend is long gone. Maybe you were close in college, but once you became more serious about your faith, she went a different direction. Perhaps she got married and had kids before you and didn’t have the time spend time with you anymore. Maybe she started to hang out with people who were not as friendly to you as they were to her.
Whether your friendship suffered because there was an argument or because life got in the way and you gradually stopped keeping up with each other, know that just because time has passed, babies were born, personalities changed, or common interests aren’t what they used to be, it doesn’t mean God cannot restore that friendship.
Continue to pray for that friend. Recognize that your friendship might not be what it was, but God put that person in your life for a reason, even if you don’t talk all the time like you used to. Worry less about “What happened to us?” and spend more time praying and asking God to reveal to you why this person is on your heart. Look to Him for restoration, and seek Him in discovering what your relationship with that person should be.
