B.I.G.

B.I.G.

Setting Boundaries, so I can keep my Integrity and be abundantly generous! 

– quote by Brene’ Brown

I have been working steadily over the last 10 or so years on boundaries.  Most people are either too loose with their boundaries or have walls built up so high around them that no one can get close.  Most boundary issues are formed from childhood.  They can be learned from examples in our lives or restraints / enabling put on us .  My children, had a great mom in a lot ways but also I was so messy.  I thank the Lord for placing the right people in my life and allowing me to learn a few lessons the hard way.   I thank Him also for never giving up on me.  Below are a few scriptures that will help us all in our step to being B.I.G.!

If you’re interested in learning more so that you can be happier in this life, here is a few suggestions.

2 Corinthians 9:7

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

1 Chronicles 20:14

“But who am I, and what is my people, that we should be able thus to offer willingly? For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you.

 

Lord, I am so grateful to You for giving me the perfect example of how to live.  I thank You for providing me a way to see how to love others while still loving myself.  I thank You for protecting me through the learning curve and still protecting me today.  I pray Lord that until the day that I come to be with You, that I will continue to learn, continue to love and continue to serve.  Amen!
