The Gift of Vulnerability

 He Hears Me
This is the confidence we have in approaching God; that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.

~1 John 5:14~
Lord, thank You for hearing me. Your ears are open to the musings of my heart, the longings of my soul, and the questions of my mind. There is nobody else in my life who promises to hear every part of me. Even in my most insecure moments, I utter words I know will reach Your heart. I dwell on worries my friends would not take seriously. I have fears that, brought up in daily conversation, would sound unreasonable. Yet, You listen.
It is a gift to be vulnerable with the Creator. You are my Master, yet I can come to You with the simplest needs or concerns. As Your child, I seek Your will and Your response. As my Father, You listen.
(Excerpt taken from One-Minute Prayers for Women )
Society has thrust us towards normalcy and towards fearing vulnerability. While, as a defensive mechanism, a lack of vulnerability may prove useful. However, as we go through life and seek God, vulnerability is just what we need. We need to know that while the decisions are up to us, we have a Savior who longs for us to just surrender and come to Him. We have to let go and give what we have to the hands of Christ. We need to become vulnerable. At that point we can see God's plans for our life!


Have you had moments like this? What is your approach to life and it's sturggles?
