Today’s word is: BEYOND


I don’t want to write today. I don’t want to talk.
I don’t want to expose anything about me or my life.
I want to cuddle up on the couch and just sit.

But the Lord wakes me up and sets me feet to walking.
He sets me forward into this day of…
loving beyond myself
caring for others beyond my bank account
stretching my to do list beyond my ability to complete
moving me beyond my fears.

I read about love and how it is patient.
Patient is beyond me.
Hope is beyond me.
Faith is beyond me.
I can’t do anything with just me.
But that’s the Gospel…everything beyond me.
Jesus lived and died so that I could be moved beyond.

I can stay where I am, but everything would just keep moving beyond me.
Or I can walk with Him
in His steps
being lifted, carried, encouraged, loved
just where I am
and where I need to be.
With my eyes set beyond.

  1. beautiful. Just yesterday I admitted to someone that blogging gets me out of bed some days; it’s what I do. I believe it’s God nudging me “Jesus lived and died so that I could be moved beyond…” what stunning words.
    Thank you.
    Peace and good.
