Life can push, and yes – many of us are so used to the pain that we tell ourselves it doesn’t hurt

.We tell ourselves this, simply because – we’ve become accustomed to people controlling and manipulating us.We even tell ourselves there’s something wrong with us – however – there’s nothing wrong with us.

When we feel that pushing and hurting, we need to pay attention, simply because – we can trust that in any situation – God can and will use it to get our attention.To show us that just maybe, we need to take care of ourselves – we need to learn to set ourselves a few boundaries so people can no longer take advantage of us.

Most of us are people pleasers by nature – we want to be loved.What’s so crazy about it – we actually think if we do what they want us to do – they’ll actually love us more.

Thats’s not the way it works.The truth is – when we do what others want us to do for their gain – we all lose in the end – one of us will feel the strangle and the hold that the other has placed on them – and when that happens – one of us will run.

We’ll do whatever it takes to get out from under the pressure and the pain of being abused.So we give it to God – who in His glorious and loving way always brings us back around – He brings us to that place of perfect peace.

The place where now – we still want to please, however this time – we have a servant heart and not a martyr heart.

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ” Galatians 1:10
