Boundaries will make or break any relationship. Where you end and others begin is not only something you should define for yourself, but should also be defined in such a way that you are capable and confident to communicate to others. People (even the ones you think are the closest or you would expect to respect you) will challenge and push your boundaries at any given moment. The enemy will prey on your inability to draw those lines for his gain in his efforts to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.)
If you can identify with any of the following statements, you need help setting boundaries.
“I seem to have the hardest time saying no to people.”
“When he/she is in a bad mood, I get in a bad mood too. It just ruins my whole day.”
“I’ve noticed that people always take advantage of me. I must be picking the wrong friends/guys/girls.”
“I know what’s best for him/her, and I’m determined to help them see that.”
Busy Mind, Deceptive Heart
A study for single ladies discovering the heart and mind of a woman as she relates to the Lord, in dating relationships and all others. This study dissects the lies so easily believed and the worry that so often captivates as in Hebrews 4:12-13 and Matthew 6:25-34.
