Fly into the arms of grace….

 

So many times in the past two years, I have longed to get away…to fly somewhere far, far from home and pretend that the devastation in my life didn't exist. To make believe that all was well and that if I didn't think about the trial, it wasn't there. If only life were that easy. Wherever I went and whatever I did, my mind wouldn't stop…the reality of the pain, the loss, and the grief followed me, day and night. There was no escaping the sorrow no matter how hard I tried, no matter how fast I ran. Thankfully, God in His kindness, opened my eyes to see that I didn't have to fight anymore; I could lay my burden down and fly into His loving embrace.

 

** I'm linking up with the lovely Lisa-Jo today for Five Minute Friday. Today's word prompt was “fly”.

    Hi Patty! Stopping by from the 5MF! I am sorry about the pain you’ve endured in your life. I am thankful that God stands with His arms outstretched and that we can, at any time, fly right into them and allow Him to wash our cares away. He is faithful. Beautiful blog.

    Dear Patty
    I had a big smile when I read your words today for the name of my blog is His Loving Embrace for exactly the same reason why you found love and peace in our Pappa’s arms!
