Unfurling

Listening When He Speaks, Photo Story
to spread open, to open out

Unfurl.

I like the sound of that term and I think it is a pity that we don’t hear it much in today’s talk.


Whenever I see Spring’s baby
ferns reaching
for light and hesitantly
stretching out
their curled, yet
soon-to-be
fronds,
I think of
my heart.

Once balled
into
a tight-fisted
mass of
toughness,
God gently
pried it
open. No,
actually,
He
unfurled it…





Run down the corridors until your strength is gone
and your heart is thumping wildly against your chest
and you fall on your face
while your soul is gasping for Him.

To read more of this and how God took my once-curled tight heart and unfurled it for His glory (and how He can do the same for you!), please follow me to Healing Hearts, Renewing Minds today.
