But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)
We have lived long enough to have been wounded and bruised. When the wound heals, the skin becomes scarred and tougher than before. If bruising continues, the surface will become callus and rough. It is our body's way of protecting itself from serious harm.
Our hearts have the same mechanism. When we are hurt and wounded, we become scarred. As each wound heals, another layer of protection guards our heart. As the layers accumulate, they become impossible to penetrate..
Let down the guard for the Lord. Just take a moment to realize that "His grace is sufficient." Yes, we have been hurt before, but He can never hurt us. He will strengthen us, but He will never make us tougher. It is alright to admit to him that we are scared and lost. Admit that you are hurt and bruised and scarred. Admit to him that you need him.
If you really want him to love to, allow Him to penetrate the layers of bitterness, sorrow and self-doubt. Allow Him to remove the scars and heal the still fresh wounds.
Just allow Him.
