Every time I tell one of my friends about trusting and believing in The Lord they stop talking to me and then they won’t hang out with me. What should I do?

Wow, Kinsey! I know exactly what you mean! That same thing happened to me! I then began praying that God would give me friends who understood what it meant to be a Christian. I kept being kind and friendly to the ones who kind of dissed me. And it happened, I got some new friends that I could really be myself around and share my feelings about Jesus with. Some of the others then would come to me when they had something dramatic going on in their lives, and then I got to share more with them. Hope the same happens to you!

Although your friends may not want to listen at first, you have planted seeds. Pray to God that He will, in His grace water those seeds. Also pray for your friends before you talk to them about your faith. Pray that God will open their hearts. Know no matter what others think God knows the intentions of your heart and will reward you.

Sandy’s thoughts are really great! Its better to stand up for what you believe in and tell others about Jesus, even if some friends ditch you. I had a similar thing happen to me when I was a freshmen. I found out later that my friends really respected me for standing up for what I believed even though it seemed like they were leaving me out. Keep doing what you know is right, it will pay off in the end. I’ll be praying for you!

thanks amber and sandy for those tips. I have some friends that are Mormon and every time I say something about the lord they say it is not true. I have thought to be friends and class mates that have kissed, dated, and they swear all the time. I don’t do that so then they forget about me. Through these struggles of mine it doesn’t seem like something in the end is going to be good

Hey Kinsey! Those are some tough things to deal with. I know I went through a time where I felt exactly like you did. I felt like my friends were doing bad stuff and I was the only one who was doing the ‘right’ thing.
Here’s a scripture that encouraged me a lot: “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up.” (Galatians 6:9 NLT)
Keep doing the right thing, even if its tough!
