Do you feel like you are drowning?
Barely keeping your head above water?
Is your calendar too full?
Getting pulled and pushed in every direction?
Feeling out of sync? rushed? stressed? or too busy?
Are you unable to find your “Best Yes” and say “No”?
It simply could be that you need to set some healthy boundaries.
“Boundaries” sometimes sounds so negative or scary. It really is just a protection that helps us live our best life. God wants us to be setting boundaries!
Boundaries are healthy, normal, and necessary.
We have to set boundaries with people, with ourselves, with commitments, even with Church obligations or serving others.
If we aren’t setting them well, we leave ourselves depleted and constantly spinning our wheels.
God reminded me today that even He set boundaries. He set them between the Earth and Sea to stop the flooding.
So today, let this be the life preserver of hope and encouragement you need. Let me give you the ticket to more peace..
Start Setting BOUNDARIES!
Examine your life and start setting some boundaries where you need to so the earth won’t be flooding all around you anymore.
Share your thoughts with us on some healthy ways and boundaries you have set.

O my soul, bless God!God, my God, how great you are!beautifully, gloriously robed,Dressed up in sunshine,and all heaven stretched out for your tent.You built your palace on the ocean deeps,made a chariot out of clouds and took off on wind-wings.You commandeered winds as messengers,appointed fire and flame as ambassadors.You set earth on a firm foundation so that nothing can shake it, ever.You blanketed earth with ocean,covered the mountains with deep waters;Then you roared and the water ran away—your thunder crash put it to flight.Mountains pushed up, valleys spread out in the places you assigned them.You set boundaries between earth and sea;never again will earth be flooded.You started the springs and rivers,sent them flowing among the hills.All the wild animals now drink their fill,wild donkeys quench their thirst.Along the riverbanks the birds build nests,ravens make their voices heard.You water the mountains from your heavenly cisterns;earth is supplied with plenty of water.You make grass grow for the livestock,hay for the animals that plow the ground. ~Psalm 104:1-14 MSG
