Hush, Hush… Being Vulnerable is OKAY

Letting myself be exposed to the Sun and Someone else’s camera. One of my favorite photos this year taken from a Leica.

It’s been awhile since I wrote something more personal on my website aside from my entries in Episodes of Grace. This time I had an inclination to share something that I’m learning every autumn season (for some reason that I cannot explain) and that is being vulnerable.

Being vulnerable has its own beauty – it makes us grow, heal, be whole and it makes us love even more. But most of us tend to avoid being vulnerable. Why? Who wants to feel pain, to be in a position of uncertainty and to be exposed? But there’s something special when we discover our weaknesses and fears especially when we decide to make them as our strength and our avenue to completely trust.

As a way for me to describe the shedding of my own leaves every autumn season, here’s something that I was able to write this morning. And I hope that it will also reflect something special in your life today. ♡

 

Hush, Hush, O My Soul,

The plans of man are limited compared to the limitless eyes and will of the Lord

Your heart is made to feel, to love, and to share a part of yourself even at a point of breaking

You’re not made to conceal the deepest part of your being and longing

You’re made to touch, made to love and made to leave an imprint that will last forever

Be still, O My Soul,

Let His will be done

And Your heart be completely surrendered

He alone satisfies completely 

You’re made to be healed, to be whole and to love exceedingly than before

Hush, Hush, O My Soul.

 

“Yet God made everything beautiful for its own time,

He has planted eternity on the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.”  ~ Ecclesiastes 3:11
