five minute friday: wide

Never have I known other arms that are open so wide. Never have I known other arms that would be wide open, always and in all situations. Never have I known other arms that are so wide open, ready to cradle me with love.

It is the beauty of the Lord. To love so fully, to forgive so readily. I can be where I am, and I know He is waiting for me, arms wide open. I know that whenever I seek Him, whenever I look to Him, His arms are wide open for me.

It has been a broken week. I have wanted to cry more than in a long, long time. And yet I can find peace in His arms. His arms have been wide open for me, all the time. Whether I have been crying, in pain, laughing, rejoicing - He is there for me. He is the One who saves, the One who loves. The beginning and the end. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and He is always there for me.

It is the safest place I know, in His arms. His love is so wide, ready to look past my sins and failures. His love is so wide, ready to accept me as I am and to help me to become more like Him. His love is wide, and His arms are open wide. I am invited.
