Wide Openfeatured


Time for my Five Minute Friday post, where I link up with lots of lovely bloggers at katemotaung.com. It’s a five minute free-write, and this week’s prompt is the word “open.” Ready, GO!

“God, I am open to you. But what does that mean? To be truly open to anything and everything that you have for me? For our family?

I know that you have wide open spaces prepared for us, where we will be free to go after you and all that you’re calling us into. You’ve said, ‘It is time.’ I feel it in my heart. But this is a big step, and I’m not sure how it is going to look. How it is going to really be. How it is all going to work out. But you’ve said that all you want is our YES and that the provision will be there.

God help me to trust you with arms wide open! With all of my heart and all of my soul freely given without restraint! I want to take your hand, Jesus, and greet the world with arms wide open!

So much is at stake–I have kids now.  I’m not just a young girl looking for adventure.  What will our lives look like if we journey wide open into the great unknown?

But what will our lives look like if we don’t? Will we miss out on Your best for us?”


Wow! Forgive that raw, wide open prayer that just spilled out of me.  I’m not even sure if I should post that.  But I suppose I will anyway.  Maybe you can relate.

You know, sometimes in our walk with God, He asks us to just trust Him and take a risk.  Following Him is about that sometimes.  You just have to trust that He knows best, and go with it.  You’ll never know if you don’t try, and you just might miss out on the time of your life.
