My Daily Bread – Got.Soul.Turmoil? Our.Only.Hope.in.GOD. Why are you cast down, O my soul, and why are you in turmoil within me? Hope in GOD; for I shall again praise Him, my salvation and my GOD. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which GOD hath prepared for them that LOVE Him. Visible Vulnerability. Being honest about our struggles allows us to help each other. Be patient, bearing with one another in LOVE.

Visible Vulnerability. Being honest about our struggles allows us to help each other.

Be patient, bearing with one another in LOVE. Ephesians 4:2

Allowing ourselves to be vulnerable can be scary. We want to be LOVEd and accepted for who we are, but we fear that if people truly knew us, they would reject us and we could get hurt. What if they found out we are not smart enough . . . kind enough . . . good enough?

But as members of GOD’s family, we have a responsibility to help each other grow in faith. We’re told to “encourage one another,” to “build each other up” (1 Thess. 5:11), and to “be patient, bearing with one another in LOVE” (Eph. 4:2).

When we are honest and vulnerable with other believers, we may discover we have mutual struggles battling temptation or learning how to live obediently. But most of all, we will share the wonder of GOD’s gift of grace in our lives.

Dear LORD, many times my fear of being hurt keeps me from being honest about my struggles. Help me to remember how much You LOVE me, and help me to be patient and LOVEing with others.
