How do you respond when someone you are encouraging doesn’t respond in the way you want them to? We often get our hopes and expectations up and are let down when they can’t meet them. It’s a worse feeling on the other side to be the person who fails to live up to your expectations. Release them of expectations and simply provide encouragement without the pressure to perform. Work on an attitude of planting seeds where some flourish and others may not at this time. Expect God to carry out His will, just focus on planting seeds.
May your Kingdom come soon. May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven.
~ Matthew 6:10 [NLT]
