When our hearts have been closed and vulnerability has become difficult, we need God’s help to open up again. Rather than being anxious or negative about dealing with what’s inside us, the Bible tells us we can quietly wait for God’s help.
My soul quietly waits for the True God alone because I hope only in Him. He alone is my rock and deliverance, my citadel high on a hill; I will not be shaken. My salvation and my significance depend ultimately on God; the core of my strength, my shelter, is in the True God. Have faith in Him in all circumstances, dear people. Open up your heart to Him; the True God shelters us in His arms.
Psalm 62:5-8 Voice
When we are certain that God loves us, is interested in us, and has a plan for our lives, our focus will shift from what we or other people think to what God thinks. We can open our hearts up to him by listening, talking, turning, and committing to being close to him.
