Do you ever walk around feeling half full, like something is missing? There are times I battle insecurity. It is a battle I bring to my Heavenly Father monthly and sometimes weekly.
During my struggles I can feel alone and unloved. It doesn’t matter how much my husband says, “I love you or you are beautiful,” it’s never enough! Like a glass that has a crack in it, no matter how much water you pour in, it will never fill up. The same thing happens, when my husband speaks words of affection, they slip right through the crack of my heart. Which leaves me doubting my husbands love for me, even though he verbally and physically shows me.
You have to love yourself first before you can receive love from someone else. If you don’t, you will never be satisfied with the love you are given.
It is not my husband’s job to fill in the cracks of my heart. He cannot fulfill me. I must go to God, he is the only one that can bring light to my thoughts of darkness.
Friend, stop relying on your husband to fill your void, if you don’t, it will leave you frustrated, while putting stress on your marriage. Take your thoughts captive and lay them at your Father’s feet.
We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. ~2 Corn. 10:5
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. ~Romans 15:13
