You cannot force a friendship. All you can do is try. And if after trying, and trying again, perhaps it is time to walk away from that closed door. Walk away with an open heart and hang on the door of your heart a little note that reads, “Friends are welcome here, anytime, especially those who never opened their doors.”
Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
– Revelation 3:20
