The Journey of Preparation to Singleness, Marriage & Intimacy With God
Day 124: MIRROR THEM
I was talking with a dear friend today and somehow our conversation shifted to how some of our last week's goals did not get accomplished do to placing other people priorities before our own.
Here I was thinking I was the only one who had a people problem. See I love people so much I want to help them be great even if that means changing my schedule, giving my all and squeezing out a little more. Only to be disappointed when I expect the same in return. When I ask for a little help or assistance I received the “No” with not a sight of hesitation or thought.
Today’s Lesson: Mirror them. Stop giving your all, when they give you crumbs.
In this journey of preparation into singleness, marriage and intimacy with God it is your birthright and in your DNA to love and want to serve others. However on this journey you must learn to give in the measure that is given to you.
With some relationships you must mirror what is being given to you. This is not true for all your relationships, but for some who have become too familiar with you and take you for granted, you must. Not only for your heart protection but for their awareness. The bible says those who are spiritual restore such a one. This even means for those who are not operating in their birth nature, as loving human beings.
Examples of mirroring
They call you when they need something, then you call them when you need something
They don't change their schedule for you. You don't change your schedule for them.
They exclude you from things.You exclude them
They don't promote you. You don't promote them.
They don't use your business. You don't use their busness.
You got it? Again this is only for those who you have identified that it seems like you are more invested in the relationship than they are.
Until tomorrow mirror their actions and do as they do.
With Beautiful Love
