Afraid to Return Home

After years of enduring domestic violence, I was afraid of returning home.

I was returning home a loser. I had made a mistake and not listened when other told me to walk away.

Do you show love at home?

I felt as if I’d let everyone down. Most of all I let myself down.

When I returned home I was met with more unconditional love and grace than I ever imagined or deserved.

There are times when we are afraid of the unknown or how we may be perceived.

However, if it is possible to return home, isn’t that better than continuing to live on an emotional rollercoaster or in emotional captivity?

Returning home often requires swallowing our own pride and taking that first step.

John wrote “There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.” {1 John 4:18}

What are you afraid of?
