Psalm 51:10 reads, "Create in me a clean heart, O God, And renew a steadfast spirit within me." Emotional renewal is important. During this Spring season, clean your heart. Who do you need to forgive? What are you holding on to that is slowing you down? Are you still feeling guilty? Have you not released the shame of the past? Are you still holding on to a relationship that is over? This is a wonderful time to decide to feel better. Set your intentions toward positive emotions. Choose JOY!
Learning to wait is difficult but i am discovering that waiting and moving slowly allows us to see the miracle of the unfolding. It involves trusting that all things will happen in time. The caterpillar doesn't worry if it is going to become a butterfly, it will become the butterfly because that is what it is made to do. There is no need to rush the process, it will do nothing but cause stress and worry. What is more productive is to watch the process in amazement that we are already designed to grow, mature, blossom, and, eventually, FLY!
What is most appealing to women, and men alike, is having someone know the real you and choosing to love you anyway. Despite all the fears, flaws, mistakes, issues, and imperfections, we seek to be loved in spirit and truth. This type of love is only created through radical honesty. Real love involves risk.
