It's Five Minute Friday.
Type for 5 minutes on one word.
No stopping or editing.
Today's word= TENDER
Open and Soft.
Ready to receive.
I want a heart that is tender toward Christ.
Never hard or stubborn or selfish.
Like the heart of a child, always open to love.
There are days when I fight hard for the tender.
Days when the callous thorns spring up and try to choke out the young, tender heart.
I want to be changeable and willing to let him make me what He's planned for me to be.
My hardness shuts Him out, so I run from it.
I run hard.
Into His arms.
His tender embrace gathers me up and protects.
My redeemer teaches me tenderness daily.
Without Him I am nothing.
