Today is Five Minute Friday.
What is it? It is a chance to stretch our writing muscles and do something fun. We write for 5 minutes on the given word. Then I reread to be sure there are no spelling errors…and that it makes sense! I add some links and photos and there it is!
Beyond myself and reaching out to others.
One takes perseverance to reach beyond the strength I have.
Beyond my ability and endurance.
The other takes the grace of God working in me.
I don’t naturally WANT to reach out to others.
I want them to reach out to ME!
But in order to do Kingdom work,
God calls me to reach out to others more often.
I love my husband and encourage him.
I love my children from a distance now.
I care for sick patients, many of whom are demanding, or have demanding families.
I love my friends and new acquaintances by listening…and occasionally speaking truth.
There are many days I feel I don’t move beyond myself. I fail.
I let people down. I don’t surprise God.
His grace abounds. It moves beyond my failures.
