It's Five Minute Friday. Today's topic- Ache
The ache in her heart is strong and real.
She longs for something more, something she just can't seem to reach, no matter how high on her tiptoes she stands.
Her hands far above her head, she stretches tall.
But she finds that in all her trying, the ache remains.
Aching for more, for perfection.
Seeking protection in the doing, the checking the boxes, the performing.
If only she could make the ache go away.
She knows her ache should be for Jesus alone, in His grace, but her sinful nature shouts loud.
To surrender is to give up control, and she knows this will pain her deeply.
This change that He demands.
The giving up of self so that He can fill the ache.
It's all worth it though, right?
Empty my hands, fill up my heart, capture my mind with You.- (Tenth Avenue North)
