Five Minute Friday ~ Lenten "Limit" 2/12/16

Welcome friends ......
Seems the only blogging I'm doing these  few weeks
is with Kate's FMF tribe of writers....thrilled to take part...
Thank you  for, the prompt and the community to spend just five minutes writing...
no editing in or overthinking...
Just  writing.

It is our emptiness and lowliness that God needs, and not our plenitude.
Mother Teresa

There is no limit  to what we can accomplish ... 
when we let it all go and leave it with God...
leave the worry, the cares, the questions, the decisions.
Along this journey of 40 days, this dark night of the soul, 
the only limit to
  doing for our brothers, coming closer to the Lord and walking
hand in hand  through the dessert with our Savior is....what?
Will it be fear? Distraction? Drama of the day?
Or will we accept the irrefutable love of the cross...
will we lean into it, enveloping ourselves into it...this miracle....
This love which is the only thing which can take down Satan and make us whole
I once believed my being full.......yet without Him, no.
It was  emptiness., limiting, binding.

Dust you are and to dust you will return.
Genesis 3:19

  1. Such beautiful and true words of the freedom to be leant into. What grace and love is stretched out to us. And oh how I recognize my own journey in your words here: "I once believed my being full.......yet without Him, no.
    It was emptiness., limiting, binding."
    Stopping by as your neighbor at Five Minute Friday today. So blessed in doing so.

    1. Anna, Thank you so much for the visit and for your kind words....... I' look forward to stopping by at hour home on the web...xoxo

  2. Beautiful words. I always enjoying reading you five minute friday posts. The express such a feeling. I wrote about the same thing...doubt, fears, and our limits. God truly is amazing. He never leaves and when we accept our lives are so much fuller. It's sad we turn our back on Him too often.
    Hope you have a great weekend! Try to stay warm.

    1. Aw, thank you Monique...... so appreciate the time you took to visit and leave a kind comment.....Will be over to say hi on your blog!

  4. I love reading your FMF posts as your words and thoughts are so heartfelt and I'm amazed you are able to pour your heart out like this in 5 minutes because it would take me 5 hours! :) Have a blessed week Chris!
