Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle.
Boundaries, properly set, protect you so that you still have the time, energy, and resources to pour into the people and purposes that are most important to you.
Boundaries impact all areas of our lives:
- Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us and under what circumstances.
- Mental boundaries give us the freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions.
- Emotional boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from the harmful, manipulative emotions of others.
- Spiritual boundaries help us to distinguish God’s will from our own and give us renewed awe for our Creator.
Setting boudaries is a crucial skill needed by anyone to thrive in the midst of a hectic world.

Have a great week,
