“You can’t be in flight or fight forever.” This is a quote from a podcast I heard recently. It had me thinking about my life up until this point.
This week will be one year since I’ve been in a new city. Even though it was hard, I’ve met some wonderful people. God has really delivered me from too much self-protection. Finally, I’m learning to believe people again.
It can be easy to forget the benefits of being vulnerable. We give up the opportunity for the good people to love us for our flaws. There is no room for blessings because we think everything is for the bad instead of the good. I don’t have to be the mean girl anymore because people won’t believe my nice sweet side. I can love a man and trust he won’t hurt me like other “boys” have done in the past.
Spiritual warfare is real, but sometimes we have to admit that the real enemy is ourselves. Get out of your own way and let love take over. Love is the only thing that can conquer all the hate and fear in the world. Use it and know that you will be ok with whatever life throws at you.
