Revolving door

If we are to love with the agape kind of love, (God's unconditional love) the door to our hearts must remain a revolving door. People come and go from your life all the time. People will hurts us that is human nature. We can choose for those circumstances to make us bitter, or better. Personally I choose better. I want to be like Jesus, and although my first instinct when trouble is around is to run, hide, and close the door to everyone forever, the second thought close behind is the one that says: we are called to walk in love! What a hard task. My heart's desire is to walk in love, and have my heart's door be a revolving door, knowing that God will take care of the rest. Today was one of those days where tears just seem to flow from me...As much as I tried, I could not stop myself. And honestly, I guess that's ok. I am human after all...emotions aren't fact it's quite cleansing, and healing. It's a relatively new concept for me...but I'm ok with it!

Well written and so, so true! I like how you said that "our hearts must remain a revolving door" - it lets people in and out. We are not to be a door mat to be "walked on" nor a fortress with "Do not enter - Go away!" posted on the front door.

You've got it!! :o) Walking in love, taking our hurts to God, grieving the losses, and letting God heal and keep our hearts soft.

I was reminded of this song when I read your post. (remember how I like to use music to express it best?)

Song: Blessed are the Tears
by Brian Duncan

Blessed are the tears that fall,
that clean the windows of the soul
And usher in a change of heart,
And bring the joy that angels know.
Blessed are the tears that fall,
that wash the stains of life away
Forgiven and forgotten now,
a new creation's here to stay.

Don't be afraid to real. It's the best kind of freedom. :o)

Of course how could I ever forget that song?? Walking in love is difficult, but you're right, it does not mean we are to be a doormat. But allowing others, as well as God free access to your heart. And if you do get hurt, allowing Him to be your Protector rather than doing it yourself! Such hard lessons.
