Everyone can use a little protection from time to time but not every situation requires full body armor. Sometimes creating thick barriers to keep you from getting hurt do nothing but weigh you down and keep all those negative thoughts and emotions close at hand. It can be easy to forget that the more barriers you throw up in order to protect yourself can also keep love and healing from making its way to you. So when you first wake up instead of throwing up that big shield you’ve been wielding take a moment and evaluate your upcoming day. Does the day’s plan place you in a situations that truly warrants full armor or maybe just a little chain mail?
