Refuge in Love

We’d like to think that our lives are tied up into nice pretty bows, with everything in just the right place. We tell ourselves everything’s okay. Everything’s okay.

And then one day we look back at our relationships, with our friends, our children, our spouse, our siblings and our parents. They’re not there. We let them whither away.

Self preservation through isolation is a lonely place. While we think we are protecting ourselves, we are hurting others. Numbing one’s self is not protection. It’s denial. It’s denying the love from others.

We want others to love us so deeply and then when they do we have no idea how to receive it. What must have happened for one to be so scared? What must have happened that even in a room full of love, they could not fully receive it? Were they born this way or did the circumstances of life dig a scar so deep, they could no longer recognize themselves?

May the Lord guide us all, that we we may seek refuge in His love. May happiness find us, and peace live truly in our hearts.
