Five Minute Friday ~ Grasp

It's Five Minute Friday when Lisa-Jo of The Gypsy Mama gives us a word to write about for five minutes flat.  The word for today is ...GRASP.

GO

When I think of the word grasp, I think of reaching and holding on to the ones I love.  I want to protect them from life and hurts in this world.  I want to teach them and treasure them.  As I look at this photo of little Kenzie (my great niece), I am reminded that I cannot grasp her enough.  After all, she lives in Florida which is a distance from Arizona.  I treasure the times I do have with her.

But I've discovered that instead of grasping, I can trust God with her life.  I can pray for her.

I've tried grasping the things I love in the past.  But I cannot hold on to them tightly enough.

I need to open my hand and release.

I am releasing them to One far more capable than myself.

I am recognizing that He knows what's best.  And I make the choice to trust Him with those I love so dearly.

STOP

How about you?  Are you grasping those you love?  

Blessings and love,

Hi Debbie, I am coming over from Lisa-Jo's, and I am so glad I linked up after you! I love your FMF post; it is so true in every area of life.

I looked around your blog, and I will definitely add you to my reader. My father died suddenly at the age of 37 from a heart attack and my daughter has a CHD, so I am in agreement with your focus on health.

Thanks for writing today!

Love this Debbie ... to grasp or not to grasp. We definitely need to depend on God.
Love this Debbie - thanks!

What a doll! I just want to grasp those kissable little cheeks but you are so right... We just lay them at the feet of His throne and believe that He will take care of them... Bless you ! This was so sweet :)

This is a wonderful post, Debbie! I spent almost 22 years grasping my son, rather than trusting God. It's time to stop.

Thank you for the reminder! :)

When I had to work abroad to support my children, I had to let go and put their lives in God's hands. And God did take good care of them for me.

What great words, my friend!! For me grasp has is the opposite of trust. I must trust more and release.

Amen...and each time I grasp too hard it seems I need to pry my hands open for release

Kenzie is a little doll. I have to confess, I am touched by her photos when you post them on FB! Brings a smile. May God give me the wisdom to keep reaching to grasp, but know when to let go and trust Him.
