GO EASY ON YOUR RELATIONSHIPS
When you engage people in conversation or relationship,
it should be just like flowing water. Water flows
downhill and naturally finds its natural course. When
you tell people to reply, ask them to, beg them to,
demand them to, pester them to, you end up with a forced
relationship. People can only go so far in such a
place, before they cry uncle and give up. It takes 2 to
have a relationship, not one that is pulling and tugging
and doing all the work to keep something going.
When you apply pressure it is the same thing as
control. Controlling people is not agape love. God
does not demand love or relationship.
Relax a bit and not try so hard, not worry about being
rejected, and not push people to respond to you. Try
not to worry so much about people's opinions about you
or your life, and just enjoy chatting as it comes and
goes. Every healthy relationship needs breathing space.
Perhaps do some self introspection and find out why
these things seem to be your pattern, and ask the Lord
to do some surgery and also healing.
Lord I ask that whatever is inside of us that fears
rejection, fears being slighted, fears being isolated or
needs people approval will be loosed and set free in
Jesus Name. Help us overcome these things and please
spotlight them so that we can grow into healthy
relationships that are really meaningful. in Jesus
Prov 18:24 NKJV
A man who has friends must himself be friendly, But
there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.
Prov 27:14 NKJV
He who blesses his friend with a loud voice, rising
early in the morning,
It will be counted a curse to him.
Prov 27:6 NKJV
Faithful are the wounds of a friend, But the kisses
of an enemy are deceitful.
