Don’t let them touch you

I really, REALLY needed to read this today! I also needed to read Psalms 94, which another blogger shared this morning. Thank you Pastor Dave, and thanks to Cindy Dawson, author of the blog Real Christian Women, for your timely posts!

It’s Narcissist Friday!

(Continuing the series: “For My Grandchildren”)

From the time you were little, your parents and others have told you that people were not supposed to touch you in certain ways. Certain parts of your body were yours alone, and others were not supposed to touch them. This was especially true regarding people who were not your parents or doctors.

You didn’t understand this at the time, but the reason was that touch is a powerful action that breaks down boundaries. Once a boundary is crossed, it is far easier for someone to cross it again. Many teenagers felt this as they dated and experienced relationships.

    Prayers that you will be able to enjoy both of these joyous occasions without fear of remembering things that no longer hold you. May God be with you through it all. He can move mountains – don’t forget.

    We will be praying for you! I’ve had to deal with a similar situation, several years ago, at my granddaughter’s graduation. The Lord brought me through and he will do the same for you. 🙌❤️
