“Man Pleasers”… Is What Many Victims Become

This is for the many who keep trying to please people…
sometimes we just need to change our focus.

“Man pleasers”…
is what many victims become…
as they avoid the abuses…
that so frequently come.
For displeasure is a trigger…
bringing anger and even violence…
so always pleasing people…
helps keep peace and silence.
  But it’s Peace they desire…
from the emotional or physical abuse…
so they always go above and beyond…
like striving for perfection is a truce.
Whether in the home behind doors…
or even workplaces where bosses abuse…
silence is the victim’s companion…
as they are more and more used.
But no human is perfect…
and striving to be is not right…
for there’s only one place Peace is found…
as we allow Christ to be our Light.
He does not want us abused…
and has a plan for each of our lives…
so let us seek His Presence…
and pleasing Him to be what we strive.
For to be a “God pleaser”…
and not a “man pleaser” no more…
will transform our lives…
and even open freedom’s door.
For He will change our lives…
for better, not for worse…
so let’s seek to please Him…
with newfound hunger and thirst.
For the “child” within us…
is a child of God above all things…
so let’s strive to please Him alone…
and see what blessings it brings.

Dear Lord, help us to change our focus from the desires to please man to the burning desire to please You alone.  Ignite a fire within us with burning passion for You. Bring healing and restoration to every wound inflicted upon us by the words and deeds of man, and empower us to speak out becoming a voice for You like John the Baptist, who never once cared what man thought but lived a life to serve You alone… in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
