YOU REMOVED YOURSELF from my life. I had someone tell me, “You don’t want me in your life!” When that wasn’t the truth- they didn’t want to be in my life (because I set a boundary) and they removed themselves, but yet blamed me. My phone and address has been the same for 15 years. I think I’ve blocked one crazy lady on FB. You can find me every week morning at the gym. I’m at church every Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday, and various days in between. My family’s lives revolves around my church family. I’m still driving the truck and you used to sit next to me, you moved. I never acted different towards them, their heart changed towards me.
Is this a familiar story in your life? I strive by grace to live a life of constancy and not allow other’s opinions or thoughts of me to change who God called me to be or to act. I can’t get caught up in your offense. If you don’t like me, it’s none of my business. I’m not moving. ““For the Lord GOD will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.” Isaiah 50:7
Friend, stay the course and do not let others move you. Someone’s opinion of you is none of your business. By grace, live a constant and disciplined life. Don’t get caught up in drama. People do not like it when you set boundaries. If you need to apologize for something, then apologize. Always be kind. You have a race to run until the end. #runyourrace
