I am SO excited to be joining the Five Minute Friday community once again. It’s been a little over a year and I have missed this community so much. I am back and hoping that I will be able to keep up with the madness. If you’ve never participated in a Five Minute Friday post, I would encourage you to do so. There is something beautiful about just letting yourself go and writing whatever comes to your mind in just 5 minutes.
Setting the timer now, for just five minutes.
There are so many things that I crave in life.
To be loved.
To be known.
To make a difference.
I know that these are things I’m not supposed to worry about. The Lord loves me, knows me and put me here on this earth to make a difference in all the lives that I touch.
But I can’t help the yearnings of my heart. Some days I want to be scooped up in His arms, held tightly and whispered words of love and affirmation. I want to be told that my life matters, that the people He’s put around me are better because of me.
I don’t always feel loved. I often feel overlooked and most days I’m not sure anything that I do really makes a difference. My heart goes searching for more — more love, more ways to make myself known, more ways to make a difference.
Yet in my restlessness, I can hear Him speak to my heart,
“Come, my child. Cease from your striving. Lay aside your cravings and know that you are loved, you are known and you make a difference.”
I must trust Him. I know His words are true. In and of myself I can do nothing. There is no thing, no one, nor any notoriety that can satisfy my cravings.There is no thing, no one, nor any notoriety that can satisfy my cravings. #fmfparty Click To Tweet
I know now that above all else — above love, wanting to be known and wanting to make a difference — all that I really need is Jesus.
Come, Lord Jesus. You are the One that I want. You are the One that I crave. Come and fill the ache in my heart.
