When you won’t let anybody get close to you because, “I’ll never let anybody hurt me again,” you’re making a terrible mistake. You’re not living! You’re just existing!
I believe it’s a part of my calling as a pastor to help you and to encourage you to say, take the risk. Have the courage to risk love again. Have the courage, because if you will take the risk and open up your life and lower the barriers, you will come alive again in a way you have never ever experienced?
So I encourage you to ask God for the courage to take that risk again! If you’re living in fear, then you’re not really living.
Insecurity destroys relationships. Love builds them!
