I was vulnerable.
Have you ever been wounded by love? I know I have, when I was young before getting married, I fell prey to unhealthy love. Even after getting married, it took me a while to establish truly healthy love in my marriage. Perhaps you can relate to that in your own marriage. Or maybe you are still seeking the right one.I was vulnerable when I was younger because I came from a dysfunctional family where healthy love was not prevalent. I didn’t know the Lord and so I was looking for love in all the wrong places and I was hurt. After coming to the Lord, it took a while to know and trust His perfect love.I am grateful for the knowledge I have gained by coming to know Jesus and His Word, but most importantly I am so grateful for His unending love, for the relationship I have established with Him and how He helps me fill all the voids.In the book Song of Songs that I am currently teaching, the Shulamite woman goes in search for her love, and she is wounded by others.
“As I walked throughout the city in search of him, the overseers stopped me as they made their rounds. They beat me and bruised me until I could take no more. They wounded me deeply and removed my covering from me.”
Song of Songs 5:7
Come join me as I talk about being Hungry for Love. I will share with you the curse that happened when sin entered the world and how it changed our relationships and caused us to be vulnerable. Learn how to recognize unhealthy love and become satiated in God’s perfect love!
There are times in my life now where I can become vulnerable, the difference is I am more aware, and I know what to do to get myself satiated so I am no longer vulnerable. I can stand strongly knowing I am loved.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you or forsake you.”
