He Showed Me Jesus

15 Feb
Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and friends for Five Minute Friday.
This is where we come together writing for 5 minutes without editing or overthinking.
I love this community.

Check out what everyone’s is sharing on the word BELOVED here.

Five Minute Friday

He came into my life when my heart was bruised and broken. Years before I had given my heart to a boy and said I do. This boy used his words and hands battering me body and soul. Something inside me had shattered during those years. 

Then I met him. He fought hard to break down the wall I had created to protect myself. No matter how hard I tried to push him away, he just never gave up. He taught me that there are words to be believed and that a touch can heal and not hurt. I fell in love with this man.

But the truth is that it wasn’t until I fell head over heals in love with Jesus that I could allow myself to be loved by him. I just couldn’t grasp that I was lovable. I had heard the words before. It wasn’t until He showed me that I was worthy of love that I could begin to heal. To know that He was willing to be hung on a cross for me out of pure love.

I married this incredible man who loved me when I felt most unlovable. 
Who fought so hard to have me let him into my world. 

He showed me Jesus.

My beloved is mine, and I am his.
Song of Solomon 2:16

    Isn't that the amazing part, how God gives us on earth a tangible , visible, real life version of grace and love to embrace us until we are face to face with Him…oh how we need this love.

    Wendy… how I look forward to reading your posts every Friday! I have lived that path… the wounded by words and fists… the hard persistent (thank God!) pursuit to break in and break down the fortress built around my heart… ah yes… I wrote about that a bit today too! Love you my friend! So happy that you let the walls crumble and allowed your Honey (and your 'Husband'!) love on you!
