Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

Acts 5:29 New International Version (NIV)
“Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!”

Too often our actions are dictated by a misguided need to please others. We care so much about what they think that with every step we take we look over our shoulder to see whether they’re smiling or frowning.

Understand this: if you’re always looking for people’s approval, you’re not looking where you’re going and eventually you’ll hit a wall or trip over your own two feet. The Bible says, ‘…We ought to obey God rather than men.’ What do you think will happen if you open your mouth and stand up for yourself?

The truth is that people who don’t respect your rights and honour your wishes are not worth your time or effort. Nor are they worthy of a long-drawn-out discussion; just say goodbye! (We’re not talking about your marriage or children.) 😀

Set Yourself Free from People Pleasing

When the land became too small for the flocks of Abraham and Lot to graze together, strife broke out. Abraham loved his nephew Lot, but he realised he could no longer live in this situation. So he said, ‘…Please separate from me. If you take the left, then I will go to the right; or, if you go to the right, then I will go to the left’ (Genesis 13:9 NKJV).

How does their story end? Lot chose the best grazing land close to Sodom, and as a result everything he worked for went up in smoke. But Abraham, who always sought to please God, ended up not only being blessed himself, but being a blessing to the nations of the world. So the word for you today is—God wants to set you free from people pleasing.

How To Leave An Inheritance To Your Children’s Children

How To Leave An Inheritance To Your Children's Children

Did you know one of the reasons I hosted the Love Nurture Functions in the past was to show parents how we could leave and inheritance to our children’s children?

What I’ve realised over the years is a lot of the couples I know, know how to stay together, Praise God! However, we haven’t really mastered the leaving an inheritance part and this comes from residual income, a fact, like gravity that works whether we like it or not. :)

Earn A Residual To Leave An Inheritance 

Do you earn a residual income?

My husband and I attended a business conference last year where that question was asked of the attendees. The speaker stated an alarming fact and said Africans, specifically Nigerians are good at throwing parties and bad at investing in the future and that we generally consider Working Tax Credit and Child Benefit to be sources of residual income! :(

How To Leave An Inheritance To Your Children’s Children

How To Leave An Inheritance To Your Children's ChildrenTruth is, personally since starting Love Nurture, I have been burdened by this knowledge and have searched, researched and signed up for a quite a few programs to get the information that parents are lacking. Succinctly put, residual income is money you get from other sources without much effort on your part following the initial setup. The trick is to find your passion and promote it to like minded individuals by becoming an affiliate or you can market your own product and services from one place and earn a residual. :)

Interested? Do you have a passion you’d like to present to the right people? Do you have a product or service to market? Could you refer others using a easy to follow process and be paid for it? Would you like to have multiple income streams?

Is your marriage being held back by self-limiting belief?

Is your marriage being held back by self-limiting belief?

You and your spouse come from different backgrounds and upbringing; it makes sense that you have different views and opinions in relation to situations, circumstances and even your marriage.

The way to deal with self-limiting belief in your marriage is to:

• First recognise there are differences of opinions don’t ruin a marriage;
• You both have self-limiting belief that started in childhood;
• Learn how to change the emotion that is behind that opinion;
• Find a way to change your response;

We’re all aware of the stories where children who come from a broken home generally end up divorced themselves. Also, you may have heard stories of children who have been abused becoming abusers themselves.

Being aware of this can lead you to the place where you can break the self-limiting belief in your marriage. To change this you have to be honest about the situation and take the steps to get past the beliefs and emotions that surround the thought and feelings that lead to the behaviour or habit. When you have a bad feeling or thought, change it by thinking of a contrary thought that immediately changes that thought and improve the way you feel.

This is the power to change your life and break free from self-limiting belief. Personally, this awareness and the willingness to breakthrough from self-limiting beliefs in addition to my personal relationship with Jesus Christ helped me in my marriage break through from self-limiting belief.

“But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth” John 16:13.
Galatians 5, tells you about the freedom you have in Christ.
