A Need to Please

“The blessing of the LORD enriches, and He adds no sorrow to it” Proverbs 10:22, Berean Study Bible.

Through the years, I’ve always tried very hard to make others happy, feeling a need to please, and never wanting to disappoint those I love. They were grateful, but I was exhausted.

God has been teaching me that when He divinely places someone in my life, I don’t have to try so hard. If I never called to pray with them, they would still love me. If I never invited them over for dinner, they would still love me. If I never did anything special for them, they would still love me because they love ME.

It’s the same with you, my sister, you don’t have to try so hard. That goes for God and anyone else He has divinely placed in your life. More than what you do for them, they sincerely love YOU. God has given you favor in His eyes and theirs, and it’s not based on what you do or don’t do. So ease up on yourself and begin to enjoy the Lord, enjoy your life, and enjoy the relational treasures He has given you.

Prayer: Father God, forgive me if I have frustrated Your grace. When I try hard to make others happy, I end up exhausted. Thank You for reminding me of Your unconditional love that is not performance-based. Keep me secure in Your love and help me enjoy You, this life and the people You have given me. In Jesus Name, Amen.

  1. Thank you God for all that you have done for me for your unconditional love in the grace that you have gave me to continue to love the people around me and sometime I get exhausted because I don’t have enough for the people that I tried to help but I thank God for all that he does in my life in the people that he has around me thank you God for your word enjoy the people that’s around but God’s love is unconditional and my life I will live a happy.

    1. I have tried so hard to please other people.. some appreciate it and do love me… but the closest, like my daughter and her daughter just call me when they need something..I don’t believe they love me…. it hurts so bad and I cry almost daily….

      1. To: Elaine’ Stop doing what you do for them! She will miss it’ and wonder if everything
        OK with you! And that’s when you share your feelings with her! Because she think because you are Mama, that you are okay and you don’t need for them to show their love. That happened to me and my son and now that he’s an adult you see clearly that it wasn’t right, and now I’m trying to instill those values and to my daughter Oswell. Pray always and worry about nothing worship about everything.✔💯🙏🙌🌹. God Loves you & JESUS too!!!

  5. This is such a Blessing I think sometimes as women we are always trying to please others or think that someone will love us more if we do more for them, this blessed my soul and help me to see someone loves because they love you and not because of the things i do for them. Thank you for this word, Peace and Blessing. 😁🙏🌻
