Balancing an Unbalanced Relationship

“Why are my relationships so chaotic?” … “I know I shouldn’t be treated this way, but I’m afraid of being alone.”

If this sounds familiar, you may be a codependent  someone who looks to another person for fulfillment. A codependent relationship consists of a “weak” person who needs to feel connected and a “strong” person who needs to feel needed. It’s a cycle that leaves both people feeling trapped.

You probably didn’t set out to be addicted to a person. The roots of codependency go back to a past of unmet needs. Today, you’re still trying to meet those needs, but in the wrong way. The problem with a codependent relationship is that it gives another human first place in your heart. Remember the first commandment?

“You shall have no other gods before me.” (Exodus 20:3 ESV)

Releasing You, by June HuntWhen you let a person be your “need-meeter,” you allow that one to be your god. From the beginning, God knew the only path to peace would be complete reliance on Him. He alone meets your needs. He alone completes you. Allow Him to transform your heart until it belongs undividedly to Him  it is there that true freedom lies.

June has written a poem to help us realize the need and power behind letting go of our own self and fears — so that we might allow God to move through the situation. Releasing You Poem

From God’s Word

“Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (Isaiah 41:10)
