This excerpt is taken from “101 Ways to Get and Keep His Attention”
Perfect love drives out fear (1 John 4:18)
Feeling fearful? Let him into that place with you. Let him see the things that frighten you. Make him responsible for your heart, and he will take care of it. If you build a wall to protect your own heart and emotions, watch him abdicate his responsibility. Don’t be confused. Though the Bible tells us to guard our hearts with all diligence, the principle is that you should shield your heart in the sense that you are careful and discerning of who deserves close proximity. However, if he has earned your trust, then by all means be open, transparent, and revealing.
A man needs to be your knight in shining armor. It is part of his very nature. Rob him of this, and his heart will grow restless and begin to search for something or someone who allows him to be all he was created to be. Allow him to cover you, to love you, and chase your fears away. Let him be your hero and fulfill his own need to be there for you.
