Taking Back Control in Your Life

We have all been there…or maybe you are currently living it

Do you have someone in your life who demands something from you, guilt trips, or manipulates, in order to get what they want?

It may seem harmless at first, or you might have felt sorry for them – after all, they were going through a hard time…yet, now, it has become a requirement to the relationship, the kind of relationship where if they say ”jump” you say, ”how high?”

Friends, it is not ok for someone to project onto you or manipulate you, in order to get what they want. This certainly isn’t ”loving one another, as God loves you” because we were created to choose to love freely, not to be a demand to do it.

Remember, that Jesus told His disciples that they would be like sheep among wolves (Matthew 10:16) – we should stand out, but for the right reasons

I want to encourage you today, that Scripture shows that Jesus’ ”yoke is easy, and His burden is light” (Matthew 11:30) – in other words, if anyone makes us feel anything other than who we were created to be…then we need to pray for them, but also start to put boundaries in place, so that they start to take responsibility in their own lives, as we should our own.

Don’t be burdened with other people’s stress, worries, or fears!

This doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t walk alongside others through the tough times, or grieve with them when they are, but it’s more than when the demands start coming, that is when we are crossing over the boundary lines, and ultimately, when manipulation starts to occur

Rebecca Brand

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
