Hi, dear saints!!! Today I want to encourage you to, as Jesus said, make the Lord our God your first love!!! As He said “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” (Mark 12:30) Why??? It is because in drawing closest to Jesus is what is going to enable us as kids of faith to have the power to stand in faith and stand secure in Christ as sufficient for us to enable us to love ourselves as Father sees us and others as Father sees them!!!
Without a secure relationship in Christ Jesus, a person is not able to set necessary personal boundaries. It is too frightening because of the fear of abandonment when we place someone’s love and acceptance above that of Christ’s. The person reasons they would rather have no boundaries and some connection rather than having personal boundaries and face life alone. Well, the good news is that we are never alone with Jesus with us each one and each of us have people in our lives that support us, therefore, we can set boundaries confident in Jesus and with the support of those who love us and believe in our efforts to live the divine life!!!
What every person desires is unfailing love and that is exactly what our sweet Jesus offers to us each one in life!!! Now how blessed are we to always have His perfect love for us that speaks truth to us and guides us as a gentle Shepherd and empowers us to do the divine things in life!!! He loves us and meets our needs, even our need for supportive healthy relationships!!! Oh how sweet is our Father to understand our hearts and be there to say “ruh, ruh, ruh” you can do this I am revealing to you, child of faith!!! YYYEEESSS!!! YOU CAN STAND FOR JESUS IN SETTING PERSONAL BOUNDARIES FOR YOUR GOOD HEALTH AND TRUST IN HIM TO PROVIDE YOU THE LOVE THAT YOU NEED THRU OTHERS IN LIFE, TOO!!! So when someone says to you for whatever reason that you are not welcome to walk with me on my side of the street, you can confidently choose to walk on the other side where our Father gives us abundantly divine loving people to walk with on our journey with Him where He opens the door for us to travel!!! Oh I know that when I prayed for loving friends several years ago after my best friend moved to Tucson and I thought how can I ever live life without her here with me, Jesus gave me sooo many friends in answer to my prayer to Him, I couldn’t hardly keep up with them all and that is just the way our Jesus is – He is faithful to show us love and His divine provision in just the right ways for each one of us!!! Blessed are we always in keeping with His promise to us “But seek first the kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33)
Where is Jesus showing you in life you need to set a personal boundary for His best for you in life, dear family??? Don’t worry about losing the love you need to do so because the love of our Father is always abundantly overflowing for each one of us as His children of faith. He will always be there to hold you and welcome you to continue in life journey with Him and oh that is all the makings of the divine life!!! Always look to draw close to Jesus as your number One love!!! Never will He leave you nor forsake you!!! There is divine power in His love!!! Claim it as sufficient!!! It is!!! Much love to you dear family!!! We are forever cared for and taken care of by our sweet Father who IS sooo loving to us!!!
