After I confronted my friend by email over a matter on which we had differed, she didnโ€™t respond. Had I overstepped? I didnโ€™t want to worsen the situation by pestering her, but neither did I want to leave things unresolved before she went on a trip overseas. As she popped into my mind throughout the following days, I prayed for her, unsure of the way forward. Then one morning I went for a walk in our local park and saw her, pain etched on her face as she glimpsed me. โ€œThank You, LORD, that I can talk to her,โ€ I breathed as I approached her with a welcoming smile. We talked openly and were able to resolve matters.

Sometimes when hurt or silence intrudes on our relationships, mending them seems out of our control. But as the apostle Paul says in his letter to the church at Ephesus, we are called to work for peace and unity through GODโ€™S SPIRIT, donning the garments of gentleness, humility, and patience as we seek GODโ€™S healing in our relationships. The LORD yearns for us to be united, and through His SPIRIT He can bring His people togetherโ€”even unexpectedly when we go walking in the park.

GOD desires unity among believers.

Have you experienced an unexpected encounter that revealed GOD working in a situation? How might you work toward peace and unity today?
