Boundaries Can Set Me Free

Did you know that having boundaries actually give us freedom! Hi, I’m Renee Swope for Proverbs 31 Ministries.

My daughter, Aster, is just getting tall enough to reach everything she’s not supposed to! This week she discovered the drawer where we keep scissors and safety pins, and she’s determined to touch every dangerous object in there.

So, this weekend we put child locks on the drawers and cabinets that are now within her reach. Although it seemed like we were taking freedom away from Aster, these new limits will actually give her more freedom to roam around the kitchen safely.

You know, in the Bible, King David talked about how he wanted to walk in the path of God’s commands because they set his heart free. Reading his words reminded me that God’s boundary lines show us where it’s safe to go. So, I’m learning to embrace what may feel like limits, because within God’s boundaries, my heart can roam free!
