Keep On Growing

Linking up with the Gypsy Mama today. Five Minute Friday is “a time when we just write for 5 minutes not worrying whether everything is just right.”CLICK HERE.

Topic: GROWING
I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.
(Philippians 1:9 NLT)

Keep on growing

Like a seed needing water
I need Him

Like a baby needing milk
I need Him

I often make growing up in Christ
much more complicated than it should be.

I. need. Him.

Earlier this week, I read this quote from Pete Wilson
“I’m broken. I need Jesus. The End.”

To grow up in Christ does not mean we do more in an attempt to earn His love. Growing up in Christ means we rest more and more in the knowledge that there is nothing, absolutely nothing, we can do to earn this love. His love for us simply is.

As we grow in the knowledge of this love, we become more dependent on Him.

Our grip becomes tighter
Our cries more frequent
Our knees more worn
And we love
because He first loved us

    I love this, Eileen! Growing up in Christ means less trying to earn His love and more resting in the knowledge that His love never fails. I need Him. That is all. Great post!!
