Five Minute Friday: Growing

Pushing past the darkness, surrounded by dirt, it aches to reach the light. Desiring to fulfill its singular purpose, the delicate life stretches out its leaves and embraces the sunlight.

     I also ache to push past the darkness that surrounds me

sadness, disappointment, fear, pain, regret, lies, things of this world

     I long to fulfill my purpose

to produce fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control

to glorify my Maker

     I desire to grow in my faith 

to be sanctified

This post was written as part of Five Minute Friday. Check it out and join us!
