LOVE CONFIRMS SALVATION
1 John 4:18 Perfect love drives fear away. Fear has to do with being punished. The one who fears does not have perfect love.

Genuine love in our lives confirms our salvation.

One of my biggest fears during my addictive years was fear of abandonment. Since high school, I have always been involved in a romantic relationship. Some of them unhealthy. Most of them for the wrong reasons.

I did not cope with being alone! Since I have been in recovery I have had one romantic relationship, with my wife. The difference between my relationship with my wife and the others in my life is acknowledging God’s love and following His guidance in our lives.

– Do you struggle with fear of abandonment?

 

Prayer: God helps me today to be content in my relationship with You and no other.
