Getting to know another person is a push-pull situation. I want to get to know you. You look sympathetic. You look interesting. But what of myself shall I put out there to attract you, without exposing or endangering myself.
Then, to think the holy almighty God would like to get to know me? He sees all. But He wants me to open up, just to be honest with love, with desires, with needs, with questions. He enjoys me. After I experience His acceptance & love, I find out he is safe for me, then I begin to relax & enjoy Him too.
