I need You again

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Give

FMF-Give-300x300

Abba, I want to be one who can give and give and give
and not count it as anything compared to
Your great worth
and all You’ve given to me

I want to give beyond what I could naturally give
of my heart, my love, my emotions, my time, my money
I want to live for something bigger, something greater
I want to live for You, Your ways, Your truth, Your reality
I want to live and give of the things of which there is no law
I want to live in peace, joy, patience, kindness

I want to give beyond what seems possible
but I can’t do this without You,
Without Your help, Your Holy Spirit, Your life, You

So I ask today for Your help
Please help me to continue to give of myself
and not hold back, and not withhold
No matter what comes
I want to be like You
Help me to be more like You

I want to know in the core of my being that You will answer
And that You are more real than anything else I’ve ever experienced or known
Please do this, please help me Father

the One whom my soul desires

As things get busier and life remains challenging
Stopping and reflecting becomes the forgotten art
between myself and my Maker

In some seasons
loss seems synonymous with life
Death of a loved one,
And seeming forgottenness pervade my reality
Disappointments creep up in my mind
and cause my heart to remember
what may be better left forgotten

The difficulties of life show themselves stronger
than I used to think they would be

Yet, despite it all
And greater than I could have imagined
is You
You are My Maker, My Creator,
You are My Beautiful Friend,
The true and only real Companion of my soul
I found You, You found me
What more could I ever have wanted for
You are the One my soul desires
My Beautiful G-d, My Benevolent Maker

trustworthy Abba

I am joining with Kate Motaung for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s Prompt:

Turn

Take a moment
Ask Abba
What are You turning me towards
and what are You turning me away from?

Simple questions
waiting on
Simple answers
from a good, good Father

When we come like a child, there is no fear
When we come as little ones, there is nothing to be afraid of
Shame and condemnation flee far, far away from me
when I come with childlike trust, believing He is good

When He asks me to turn away from something,
it is because He always has my good in mind
He doesn’t desire to withhold from me
He only desires to give to me extravagantly

We can ask without fear
that He lead us and guide us
and trust He will do it
He will only lead us into that which is our good
and is for our best
that we might know Him more and more
that we might love him
and trust the goodness of His heart towards us

Take us deeper into Your heart, Abba
Bring us closer to You, Father
Turn us towards that which You desire for us
Turn us away from that which keeps us from You

What a wonderful Abba, what a wonderful G-d
