Five Minute Friday: GRASP

Today I am linking up with

Lisa-Jo's

Five Minute Friday.

Five Minute Friday

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.

2. Link back 

here 

and invite others to join in.

3. 

And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community.

.

GO! 

“grasp

how wide and long and high and deep is the

love

of Christ,” I don’t even know the whole scripture … only this portion comes to mind. Grasp is not a word I use in my everyday vocabulary so I think of scripture. I think… holding on, really getting it.

Do I really get it?

I don’t -I doubt, I question. Maybe not out loud, after all I have been singing

Jesus loves me, this I know

as long as I can remember. Sometimes my actions don’t show it. Sometimes I don’t stand up to the lies that speak otherwise.

Grasp, get a hold of it, hold on for dear life, don’t let go.

Is that truly possible?

“My, child there is so much I have waiting for you here in my love, grab it!! Hold it so tight it becomes a part of you.  You will not regret it.”

Get it.
