Five Minute Friday: Tender in Grief

I have been so full this week.
Full in my heart.
Full in my head.
So full that I think I may just burst at the seams.

The Father is relentless in His pursuit of my heart
And I crumbling under the unexpected surgery that my soul must undertake.

Really? Now, Lord?
But it's only January?

And little things make me want to cry, to weep because this body is overflowing with what needs to let go.

And then she is there..... gentle, so compassionate, so tender in my gushing
Listening, soothing, breathing life into my broken places.

I am typing my grief to her and although she cannot see my tears, I know she hears them because somehow, some way in this funny URL world, she has my heart.

"...Maybe pressing in to your healing - really grieving the loss..."

And I realize the time has come to release this hurt, this pain, this mantra of agony resounding in my head.

And I will.

Because as another wise woman always says...which makes sense to me MORE now....All's Grace.

Sounds like the kind of week I've had. I'm just too numb to cry at this point. I'm sorry you're so full of all that stuff that hurts so much. I wish I had some friends like you do that I could cry with and know they heard my heart. You are blessed in the mess.

Oh Lindsey. Praying that you can release it to his care. The weight you will feel when you are at long last, able to lay it down at His feet.... Praying for you, my friend. ((hugs))

PS: Annie is wonderful, isn't she?! I simply adore her.

I am so sorry for the pain that you wrote about so beautifully.  Writing helps, no?  Grace, too.  In people, in other people's words.  I hope today is easier for you, and that you find hope for a brighter tomorrow in taking this step.

In His relentless pursuit of our hearts, He shows his tender care and love, yes ... And in His relentless pursue of my own, I feel that He is beckoning me, too, to give it to Him, all that is weighty and burdensome so that I can really yoke with him. I pray you will find the peace in the letting go and His strength in your weakness. Beautifully aching, Lindsey,

It's one of Gods miracles, bringing us the right people when God knows we are ready to heal and grow deep. I just love that it came from a friend in the blogging community. Relationships are the best part about blogs!

Oh, friend. I am so thankful for you sharing your heart, for your vulnerability, and for the sweet gift of community.  Thank you, and *yes* to the pressing in and letting go - in you, in me... So thankful we have a tender Shepherd...
