I remember when I first met my husband, David. I bet I ran into him on AT LEAST five separate occasions.
It seemed like every time I turned around, THERE HE WAS with some cheesy pickup line, giving me his phone number…AGAIN! (What is WITH this guy?)
I had just been through an abusive relationship and divorce. I tried dating a couple of times, but it didn’t work out. So, I really wasn’t LOOKING for a man.
David was different. He was very sweet! And even though he gave me his phone number FIVE times, I NEVER called him!
Sometimes, the answer to our prayers comes walking right into the room, but we just don’t RECOGNIZE it, at first.
We’re so afraid of being hurt that we lock ourselves behind imaginary walls, thinking that we’re protecting our hearts.
That’s what the disciples did when they found out that Jesus had risen from the dead. They locked themselves in an upper room because they were AFRAID. (John 20:19)
They thought they were locking out their enemies. Instead, they almost locked out Jesus, their ANSWER.
Well, FINALLY I gave in. It only took one date for me to realize that David was the one I’d been waiting for my ENTIRE LIFE!
My BLESSING had been right in front of me the whole time!
Are you afraid of being hurt, again? Have you been HIDING your heart from the world?
It’s time to UNLOCK the door!
