DOORMATS

Filed under: Inspiration — sistersinchrist @ 5:58 pm

Doormats are for dusting your feet on. That’s right! You leave all the dirt on the doormat before you step into an apartment, you also step on them on your way out.Yes, and you walk all over them. Some women let others walk all over them they are doormats!

                        Doormats are in relationships where they are abused physically and emotionally yet they do nothing about it, instead they make all sorts of excuses for those they allow to abuse them. They only attract men that have very little or no regard for them. When they ought to be cherished knowing that they are part of a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people (1pet2:9)

They are in relationships that don’t grow. It stays stagnant year in year out and these women stay because they are grateful to be in any relationship at all. They prefer that to f being alone even though God has not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind(2tim1:7)

            Some others are oppressed by people all around them in the office, by their peers and even oppressed by the thought of the future. Doormats do not take the initiative.They wait and let things happen to them. We ought to be the light of the world (matt5:14)

Being a doormat means allowing the spirit of fear to rule over your life. It means settling for less when you ought to be the head and not the tail, above only and not beneath (deut28:13) this should apply to all aspects of our lives. Our lives ought to be a representation of God. If we are scared, inactive, easy to mess around with women what sort of ambassadors of Christ would we be?

            As Christians the promise that freedom from fear and oppression doesn’t come near you (Isaiah 54:14) belongs to everyone who claims it, believes it and then applies it to every aspect of their lives. we should be in a hurry to better our relationships and lives so that we can be a blessing and an inspiration to others as we climb the lather of life thereby glorifying God and representing him the way we ought to.

            Doormats are for leaving all the rubbish on, they are for dusting all that’s left over from your walk around town. They are for wiping your shoes before you step into a beautiful apartment, Are you a doormat?

  1. I thought it a bit odd that you’ve specifically centered this on women. This is an issue with both genders, but you’re right – people do allow themselves to become doormats because they are just happy to be wanted. Letting other people walk all over them is an acceptable price to pay; the feeling of being ‘wanted’ is all the rewared they need.

    And yes, this is true for all aspects of life. This is friendships, business relations, and brief contacts with strangers. Allowing yourself to be a doormat is also about not allowing yourself to contradict others, to not think you rate to have an opinion or influence, or to have the ability to say “NO!”

  2. Hello, Sisters in Christ! This is the TRUTH!! Halleluiah! We ARE the head and not the tail! We can overcome ANY strife if we just ask Jesus in our hearts, and put it in HIS HANDS. Praise the Lord
