Have you ever found yourself guilty of building walls around your relationships, or perhaps casting safety nets around your heart? When you have been around long enough, and your life has been battered with emotional pepper we quickly resolve to put out the fire and isolate ourselves in a barrage of protective walls.
These naturally sparked defense mechanisms are a way that our soul reacts to unwanted strife and troubled relationships. Who wants to wake up every day, and confront someone who continually nags at your presence? Or, better yet, who knows how to seemly discourage your every progress.
While coping with these difficult situations be careful that your protective walls do not become your spiritual prison. Be aware that isolation is a subtle way of sabotaging yourself into defeat. God desires that you learn how to walk in continual forgiveness so that in every circumstance you are felicitous!
Don’t be a prisoner of walls (POW)!
