I am learning that the more I trust the Lord and rely on the power of prayer, the better my relationships with others will be.
For example, I will be less likely to give potentially hurtful unsolicited advice if I trust that God is watching over the people I’m praying for. Also, if I trust God to reveal people’s weaknesses to them in His perfect timing and way, I won’t hurt their feelings by trying to do it myself. Trusting God will help me not to be overly protective and it will help me to have a positive outlook on life, even in the hard times. I can enjoy life a lot more when I trust the Lord to take care of those I love.
When it comes to my concerns about people, I’m learning to pray more and say less. Then I can focus on encouraging them and being a positive influence in their lives.
