Five Minute Friday - Wide


I've always had such a big heart. I’ve always had a heart for others,. Unfortunately… my lack of self esteem and being so critical of myself growing up, it has always hindered me from being there for others. I always felt as if I didn’t have anything to bring to the table. I always felt as if my words would do more harm than good. I always felt so…. little, so insignificant.

I’m so thankful today that I know my strength comes from a mighty God, a big and mighty God. I am so glad that I have finally been able to open my arms, open my arms WIDE and start to give myself to others… my flawed, little, insignificant self, so full of God overflowing through me.
I realized that it isn’t how much I have to offer, but what God can do for them through me when I allow Him to.

I know that even when I feel down, I can always be there for those that need… because it’s not what I have left in me, but what He fills up overflowing through me. And we all know how much Jesus loved the world… He stretched out His arms WIDE and died for us.
