When the Lord begins to open your eyes, it seems you go through a time of training. Suddenly everything is filtered through this lens and you are amazed that you did not make the connection sooner. I have recently been learning about boundaries. This is new territory in some areas, but heathy and good. As a daughter of the King, part of my identity is holy, set apart, and chosen. God sets clear boundaries of protection around that which belongs to Him. He sees my heart as worth protecting and gave me His Word to act as boundary lines that are not to be moved. The lines given in pure love, guard my heart from being divided. Fear, guilt and shame come up to the line and can tempt me to compromise, but inside the lines I remember what is true. This is a deliberate choice and not always easy, but peace is worth the fight.
