When you open your heart to someone, you take a risk. You could get hurt, right?
But if you keep your heart closed, what happens? It gets cold and hard.
There is one place where you can open your heart without risk — in the presence of God. The Lord is pure health and goodness. He will never condemn anyone who seeks his mercy and love.
Jesus makes your heart strong and healthy. Go to him. Open your heart. Then have the courage to go out into the world to feel again and to love more.

PRAYER TO OPEN YOUR HEART
O blessed Lord,
I carry my wounds deep inside. Can I hide them even from you? How long will I hurt? How lonely is my heart?
Help me, O Lord, to trust you. You gave me Jesus, your only Son. Innocent. Faithful. Pure. What further proof do I need? The love of God has no limit.
In the wounds of Christ I am safe and secure. Nothing in my heart, nothing in my past, no amount of shame or sorrow can extinguish the mercy of God. You show me tenderly your great care for me.
So let me open up my heart in that place of sacred trust & safety. In Jesus, there is no condemnation. By the blood of Christ I am free.
May your grace rush in, O Lord. Make me whole and healthy, to trust more, to love more. As I am loved beyond all measure.
In Jesus name I pray,
