Psalm 121:1-2 states “I look up to the mountains-does my help come from there? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth!” For many years in my life I looked to man and myself to find my help and my strength, and I did not find it there.Many mistakes later I realized that I needed a savior who may help me find the strength that I needed to build trust in who I was and to sufficiently trust others.
I was abused from a very young age and this taught me that I was not safe. I had no ability to stop others from crossing into my space and hurting me or doing whatever they wanted to. I felt powerless. Over the years I have developed skills in boundaries which has given me the ability to feel more empowered in my life. It was my trust in God that gave me the strength to develop my own personal space and defend that space. I learned to say “no” to the bad.”The Lord tells me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made . I am adopted into His kingdom. I am not what the world says that I am. Where do you get your help from, what others say you are or what God says you are?
