Beyond 5 Minutes

27 Jul


out of my reach…
past the point…

a negative connotation for the most part in my mind

BUT… I think

I want my kids to go BEYOND what they think they can do

I watched a mommy bird gently push her little bird BEYOND the nest this morning

and that’s what I want to do with the boys

I know from running with my gals that friends can push me BEYOND anything I would ever think to do, like running a half marathon – Twice!

God gently encourages me BEYOND my comfort zonebut NEVER BEYOND what I can handle

like He’s doing with Nathan’s playing drums for Student Ministries worship –

always an opportunity for Nathan to trust God in one way or another

and Nathan said, “But I don’t like it that way”

and I understand!


but NEVER BEYOND my outstretched hand

NEVER BEYOND my call for help

NEVER BEYOND my desire for companionship
