From the Pastor’s Desk
Sometimes I wonder if I had no past and no future, would I act differently today. That is to say, how are my daily actions limited by past failures and future worries? We know as Christians we are not to be limited by our past for if we are in Christ we are a “new creation (2 Cor 5:17)”, and we ought not fret for our future for just as the Lord cares for the birds of the air and the flowers of the field he cares for us (cf Matt 6:25-34).
Co-dependent. Relationally Addicted. Performance Anxiety. An inability to have a healthy, mutually satisfying relationship. These buzzwords and phrases have been around for quite some time. These people agree with everyone, are constantly apologizing, feel responsible for everyone to feel good, are overburdened in their care for others, avoid conflict and can’t admit when they’re feeling hurt.
