I reach because I want to stretch myself to the limits. I am not content to sit back and settle for less. I reach to serve God as much as I can. Not because I have to, but because I want to out of my love for Him. Out of the knowledge that He is the answer and He is what makes my heart beat. I reach to teach my children God’s love, to help them understand Him in small ways. It is a stretch because how can I explain a God I don’t fully understand? His words guide me, helping me, showing me how to stretch myself to become fully alive. I slowly unfurl under His love, becoming more alive as He changes me. I reach for His hand, finding utmost comfort in His love, resting in His arms, breathing Him in instead of rushing. I reach for you Jesus.
I am linking up with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday.
