When someone gets hurt, the tendency is to close their heart in an attempt to self-protect. That’s a faulty coping mechanism. Closing up your heart doesn’t really keep the hurt out. It may help a little but it will make things worse by keeping love out as well.
Ask God to help you open your heart up. Take down any protective walls you have built. Don’t wait. Start enjoying life now. You can still get hurt but God will heal your pain. The love you will receive from Him and others will be worth it.
We all have a choice – to protect ourselves or to ask God to protect us. He is by far the better protector. He doesn’t violate anyone’s free will but when we ask Him to move on our behalf He does amazing things.
Allow Him to flood your heart with His love. A closed heart indicates a need for healing. Pour your heart out to Him. Let Him heal your wounds and wash away the pain with His comforting love. His love will transform your life!
