How God Encouraged Me to Be More Vulnerable... With Him
How vulnerable would you say you are before God?
Or to think of this another way, have you ever been in a relationship (romantic or otherwise) where you’ve been afraid to be fully vulnerable? Maybe you didn’t want to seem to needy or broken or immature or not enough. Maybe you feared rejection, of being left. I’ve felt this at times and then put up walls to convince myself that I didn’t need or want to be more vulnerable anyway. Everything was good, I had my life together. Things were under control.
Then when things got real, hit the fan - whatever you want to call it, I couldn’t hide.
But praise God, giving him *all* my pieces changed my life. I realized the more I gave him, the more he healed. The more time I spent with him, the more he poured out. God is so mighty and could force us if he wanted - but he doesn’t. He gives us free will. If we don’t want to spend time with him, he won’t make us. But if we do - what sweetness he has in store. 🥰
I’m so in love with God now, and long to give him all I am, everyday. And yet God still reminds me, like today, that I can give him more.
“Don’t be afraid of more. To be fully vulnerable. To tell me everything, all the time. Open up to me completely - let me love you, teach you, prune you in the way I know is best. That I know you need. See everyday as an adventure, a beautiful, glorious adventure *with* me. You never have to bear your burdens alone. You never have to feel lonely. Embrace, believe, love with the truth that you belong to *me.* I am your creator, provider, love - your God. Stay near, sweet child.”
Seasons change and we get new opportunities to grow with God. A beautiful thing, amen?
Praying we all seek God today, giving him more of our hearts. Let’s not miss what he wants to give us. ❤️
*I, Jesus … am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” (Revelation 22:16 - sticking out to me this morning)
Drop ❤️❤️❤️ if you sense God showing you new ways to rely on him. Praying for you 😘🙏
