This week we are talking about avoiding the traps of people pleasing. I honestly never really thought of myself as a people pleaser, but now that I am examining different areas of my life and why I feel led to say YES to so many, I can see that I fit in as a people pleaser too.
If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant. Galatians 1:10 NLT
This week we are reading Chapters 13-15 of The Best Yes.
I loved listening to these chapters while I drove back ALONE in my car from doing an essential oils class last week. It’s not very often, as I know you all can relate, that I am in the car alone with silence enough to do such a marvelous thing!
I went back and re-read the chapters briefly, underlining and highlighting so I can share some key points from my perspective with you all tomorrow. I love how our discussions on the Facebook page bring in so many different viewpoints and really open up the discussion. I think about things that were not even on my radar when someone else shares from their heart. Community is key in getting even more out of a study. :-)
I was especially touched with this line of the book this week, “Don’t waste it. Let it make you aware. be an extension of God’s love right now.” I want to keep this close to my heart and be used – open to His whispers.
Did you see where our blog, this space is opening up to care for another Compassion child??!!!! I am thrilled. Everyone is making a difference, every little bit and I am so thankful I was aware and open to hear His whisper to use this place for that calling.
“We want big directional signs from God. God just wants us to pay attention.” pg 170
If you are participating in the extra reading of Proverbs, you’ll want to be sure to read Proverbs 26 – 31.
I will see you back here tomorrow with my thoughts on this weeks reading. Be sure to hop over to the Facebook page and share in the community!
