Do I obsess about hurting others' feelings?
Do I make things worse by trying to fix the codependent messes I make?
Do I make others' problems my own?
Do I fear letting new friends in?
I want to have friends, but I am so afraid that I will screw thing up like I have in the past. I NEED to have HEALTHY friendships!
This is what I read this morning:
Proverbs 29:25 (Amplified Bible)
The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever leans on, trusts in, and puts his confidence in the Lord is safe and set on high.
Proverbs 29:25 (The Message)
The fear of human opinion disables;
trusting in God protects you from that.
Proverbs 29:25 (New Living Translation)
Fearing people is a dangerous trap,
but trusting the Lord means safety.
I need to cling to HIM if I am going to have healthy friendships. I need to do what HE desires for me.
Will the rest fall into place if I totally depend on HIM?
Yes,I think so.
