Trust Your Mate
- Monday, January 07, 2013
God has given you a helpmate, and your mate can only help you if you lower your defenses and listen to him/ her. Most of us have created protective shields against any kind of hurt, and in the process wall ourselves off from important information and help our mate can give. Have you built a wall that keeps you isolated from not only the negative things, but the positive things you can get from your mate? What do you need to lower that wall? Talk about this with them.
