James 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
I know from experience how easy it can be for us to shut others from our heart to avoid hurt. I went through heartbreaking trials in 2020 with the loss of my hearing, my husband, and my church family. After those incidents I found it hard to be open and trusting of others. When we do this, we are closing ourselves off to receiving love and companionship from those who want to be part of our lives. God did not make us to be alone but to commune with others. God desires for us to be happy and without love and companionship we cannot be completely content and happy. I still carry a fear others may hurt me but little by little I am opening my heart more and in so doing I find blessings I never would have had if I had left my heart closed off from those who wanted to love and care for me. My prayer for you today is that you find the courage to open your heart up to the blessings the Lord has in store for you. Trust Him to bring people into your life that will be good and right for you. The Lord heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. (Psalm 147:3) He loves you and He has blessings waiting in store for you. All you need to do is open your heart and receive those blessings.
God Bless You Always!
