“Fear is not of God. Yet He tells you to fear Him! Why? Because fear of Him eradicates fear of and for anything else!
Could it be that we fear giving ourselves/our hearts wholly to our husbands because we have not given ourselves/our hearts wholly to God?
Being loved (allowing someone to love you) requires being vulnerable enough for genuine intimacy to take place. Trusting God first and most is necessary in order to ever get to that point.
People who fear being hurt in relationships will always subconsciously and almost unknowingly avoid true vulnerability and intimacy. They literally make it impossible to know them let alone love them.”
