Seth, thank you for your encouraging words spoke in truth. My heart’s question is what do you do when you finally open that door, become vulnerable– reveal parts of your heart to someone who you feel Good had allowed you to fully trust and…. They walk out and leave your heart gaping. In your story of this man who in his small group revealed deep long bottled up hurts of past abuse…what if instead of finding embrace from these men –that they shunned him and he felt rejected like never before? What if by taking the chance for intimacy by becoming vulnerable, the men took the information & now turned their backs on him? I know the pat answer is to say there is the chance for that pain to happen…but that doesn’t help the person now with the gaping wound. The thing is, the pain he once carried and defined as manageable now has increased 100 fold. I know God can heal….but now the chances of him ever coming to a place to trust again may never happen. Any wise words….
