7 Ways to Come Alongside a Friend Struggling With Her Faith

We all know what's it's like to struggle in our faith. Whether its doubt, heartbreak, or simple boredom, we all face seasons that test our faith in God. Which is why we can completely understand what it's like for a friend who may be going through the same thing. Still, it's not always easy to know what to say or do for a friend struggling with her faith.

1. Don't Judge

Maybe your friend is struggling with sin, or doubt, or even apathy. Either way, the last thing she needs is for someone close to her to point the finger. Now is not the time to point out all that she is doing wrong. I know it's easy to think if we convict her of what may be distancing her from God she'll "get her act together" but that couldn't be further from the truth. Only the Holy Spirit can convict someone, it's simply not our job to do so.
