a message from made-for-another-world
I know that sting all too well friend, and let me say I admire your asking for help, when all too often in those situations I have withdrawn from the world…so on that note, in some ways you are already ahead of me.
There’s a lot of scripture that gets thrown around as a proposed ‘quick fix’ in scenarios like this, intended more to provide rapid relief and a ‘feel-good factor’ than a sustainable source of support or comfort.
So forgive my boldness, but I feel you deserve more than one single verse, chosen to set you back on your feet.
Look at the Bible as a WHOLE. The sacrifice that took place on that cross, the culmination of design and master planning from on High…all of that was for YOU. You are precious enough to Him that He knows the hairs on your head by number and overlooks your every breath with an enamoured intrigue that will not fade, wain, or die.
Infinite, is the word you’re looking for.
Now, two practical pieces of advice - Firstly, that same price that was paid at Calvary was also paid for the guy you like, but more importantly for this other girl. I cannot stress to you enough how important it is not to allow bitterness, resent, or judgment to consume you towards either party, for they too are deemed precious by God.
Secondly, don’t let this bring you down too much. Other guys will come along,
maybe in weeks,
but in the meantime strive to grow into a Proverbs 31 woman, so that you can be assured you are developing all the characteristics that will attract the right kind of man!
I hope this has helped, and if not, just know that God values you in a way no mortal man could ever hope to fully match!
