Hello, my name is Roxanne. I am now 22 years old. I live in London and I am currently a student studying a bachelors degree.
Where will you draw the line, to me, essentially means what I am willing to do for God despite how others especially those that may not understand, might feel about it. I was very shy and socially awkward so I tried a little too hard to fit in. I later learnt it was never God’s will for me to fit. The Lord graciously taught me that people pleasing is in fact idolatry. Which I found interesting because I thought people only idolised things like money, cars, clothes etc.. After searching the word about who God is and who I am in Him, I was better able to present the gospel to those who didn’t know Him. The theme is really making me think if I am continually putting an limits on God or the power of His word.
The advice I would give to someone struggling with any limits they’ve drawn is to first humbly go to the Father and ask for divine wisdom and understanding and read His word to learn more about the character of God and in doing this you find out who you are aswell. When you undoubtly KNOW who you are in Christ then you should walk fearlessly without limits or lines.
