I’m writing for this week’s #FiveMinuteFriday. Our word prompt is “TRY.” These are my five minutes of unedited thoughts. You can visit the FiveMinuteFriday community for more wonderful thoughts and link-ups.
I’ve tried so hard to be . . .
Never truly knowing who I was meant to become.
I’ve tried so hard to know . . .
Never fully comprehending what it means to understand.
I’ve tried to climb . . .
And learned the beauty of falling.
I’ve tried to love . . .
But it was never as sweet as being loved.
I’ve tried live life my own way . . .
But there is only one Way that leads to life.
I’ve tried to be perfect . . .
And it’s only shown me more imperfections.
And now, I’m thinking maybe I need to stop trying . . .
But to rest in the arms of Jesus, who tells me I don’t have to try.
I am His.
