Unexpected Resistance

Sometimes unexpected resistance can stop us from doing something God has asked us to do. Isn’t that the way it always is when you start doing something you’re excited about? Have you ever tackled a DIY project? Perhaps some craft project you saw on Etsy or Pinterest? You thought, I can do that! You gathered the supplies, set time aside, and started on the project—but suddenly your work doesn’t look like the picture (think the TV show Nailed It!), and you become discouraged. Or maybe it is harder than you expected, and you begin to think you’ve made a big mistake. You meet resistance and your enthusiasm evaporates.
