It’s hard to take someone at their word.
It’s amazing the way that we build up walls as defenses around our hearts.
and tragic how those walls become a prison for the very thing that they were erected to protect.
So we hear the words from others, but don’t believe their message.
Maybe we even see the actions that demonstrate the validity of their message, and we still don’t believe it.
Like when someone says, “I love you…. you are the most precious thing to me in the world”
and we don’t believe it.
Even though he’s given everything… absolutely everything to be with me? Even though he gave his life to be with me?
