I used to be a people pleaser. Deep down worried about people’s opinions of me. Worried about what they would think. Because of my personality, and at the time my ability to understand God’s heart of compassion in me, I loving and at times, stupidly, allowed people to take advantage of my character. It left unwanted and unnecessary scars that made me afraid to love again or reach out to people.
And that caused me to limit myself–and God–in many ways. I was low key for this portion of my life.
I hid it well. By excelling and overachieving, smiling, I silenced, I believed at that time, any possible criticisms people may try to have against me. And by being kind, yet distant, I felt that I could control a person’s ability to hurt me.
That’s still being controlled by others too…
But now–The Lord has freed me of that bondage.
“The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the LORD will be exalted.”
Now, I freely give because I have been freely been given His Love.
I carry grace and trust the Lord that no matter what happens–I’m accepted by Him,
And that’s all that matters.
I am deeply cared for and loved by Him. And whoever treats me otherwise
It’s their loss.
No one can make me not share His Love–or my testimony. Because He has set me free. He has set me free from doubt,
That’s pride to hide what God has given you
of faith, love, and encouragement. Now, I am free. To be me. All He made me to be.
Thank you Father, Glory to Your Name. Amen.
Today is the day of victory–for Jesus causes us to TRIUMPH!
Remember, to everything, there is a season,
A time and purpose under heaven.
