Coloring Within The Lines

Everything God creates has boundaries. Even though you have many responsibilities and the Bible says that to whom much is given much is required, you still need rest and break from dealing with the same things all the time.
We need boundaries because our lives are filled with people who are needy and situations that are urgent. Do not become angry or disappointed because those around you continue to place more and more weight on you. It is your responsibility to say when you have had enough. If you never say to those around you, "I am taking time for me,"they will not think that you need it. The only way to endure the demands placed on you is knowing when to put up your hand and say, "Enough!" It is helpful to direct those you love to an endless source rather than being that endless source. Become a compass, a guide, and avoid becoming every one's final destination. It is wise to be a means and not an end. Serve them, love them, and then direct to them to someone who never fails them. Understand that you are not the Christ, just a leading lady.
