Takin' Five on Friday - Grasp
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
It's been a while, but here we go..
Grasp, it's within grasp, it's just so hard to grasp, the thought of grasp is hard to grasp today.
Life is downright confusing some days and then you toss in dreams and the things around you that are happening, known as harsh reality and it's hard to grasp what's what and even why things happen the way they do.
The only comfort I have some days is that I am always safe in my Father's grasp. He holds tightly to me, my heart, my cares, my dreams and lifts me up when I am falling. I am not alone, I have a comforting hand grasping mine and guiding me through these days.
I look around and see that there are beautiful things all around me and that if I don't slow down to see them they'd be but a blip in the radar of life. They can be so much more, I can sit back and grasp in my mind the beauty of the sunset, the happy sound of combines and tractors rumbling along in the midst of a harvest season. I can enjoy the children running around like maniacs because the sound of their giggles is something that lasts only an instant but can remain as a memory for years to come.
Grasp this life with both hands. Holds tight to the preciousness that it truly is and enjoy it. Don't hold tight to the stress, drama and worries of this life, but hold tight instead to the comfort that comes from the love of your Father. Feel the love in the grasp of His hand.
8:46 - ran a bit over, but HAD to finish the thought.
Have a blessedly beautiful Friday!! I'm spending the afternoon with the school kids on a bike ride for Go The Distance Day. Gonna be GREAT!!
