My dogs do a great job warning me if someone enters my yard. The fence and markings around my house defines my boundaries. To walk through my yard to take a short cut or to throw litter in my grass is a violation. What comes in and out of my yard matters to me and I don’t take trespassing lightly.
I’d call the police if someone climbed over my backyard fence. I don’t let anybody in my house unless I know them. I don’t open the door if I have never met them before. No one has any business interrupting my time or entering through my yard unless invited.
I guard the inside and outside of my home and nothing will pass me.
I feel the same way about my heart and my family. I’m very careful about what I listen to, read, and watch. I only allow people into my home that are respectful and show honor. My heart rests in my home. It’s a quiet place where I feel safe. I fight to keep it a safe place for my loved ones.Boundaries are rules that we set to protect our heart, mind, and body. We have boundaries to keep others out that don’t respect us.
I’m committed to teaching my children good healthy boundaries. They need to see a strong momma who stands up against wrong and fights for truth. There are parents and kids that we don’t invite over for dinner or play dates. We will not go over to everyone’s house that we get invited to. For others to be part of our inner life they need to share the same values that we have. They need to show a love towards God and others.
