Five Minute Friday~ Grasp
It was just within my grasp. Or so I thought.
I had worked hard to accomplish my goals. My dreams, my aspirations, my desires- they all were before me and I was stepping into them. Until...
...things changed. Again.
And as I watched them slip through my fingers, I learned an important lesson. All of these things don't change simply because my situation changes.
It is in the holding loosely of things that true satisfaction can be attained. It is not in the grasping for success that success is found.
Instead, success is much more like floating. Floating on God's grace. Trusting in His plan. In His timing. In what He desires.
"Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart." Psalm 37:4
I taught this verse to my kids the other day. But I really taught it to myself. Again.
These dreams that we chase that we almost grasp are not meant to be caught. Instead, they are meant to change with our Father's will.
This is the place that I am at. So close, reaching, but finding that His plan far exceeds mine. His desires for me are beautiful.
And so, I will stop trying to grasp at these dreams and simply delight in the Lord.
