Boundaries: a point or limit that indicates where two things become different.
Boundaries are important just like goals are in daily living. Boundaries are set perimeters to keep a balance in our health, marriage, faith, friends, family and finances. I have found over the years how important setting boundaries are even if someone don’t like it.
I learned some things the hard way, because I wore my heart on my sleeve.. sort of speak. I learned greatly that if boundaries are not set people will greatly take advantage of you, you give a inch and they take a mile, until you have to put your foot down, then they get all huffy at you because THEY crossed a set boundary.
My children like to push the boundary lines… (laugh out loud)
In addition, I learned a great boundary line is changing the subject in the middle of a “none of your business conversation” it works wonders, like the definition says, boundaries indicate where two things become different. I am sure some of you reading this are saying “oh yeah”!
Boundaries are not set to be hate perimeters (you can still be a happy bubbly blue smurf of a person… lol) they are set to be healthy perimeters to keep your life in a better focused less stress flow. Sometimes those people and things trying to break through your set boundary lines simply need to be put in order.
If the Lord did not set the oceans boundaries lines we would be in trouble. If we don’t set boundaries for people in our lives or in our spending habits…etc, troubles will arise.
I was there when he set the limits of the seas, so they would not spread beyond their boundaries. Proverbs 8:29
Boundaries is my word for today….Don’t cross this boundary line
