with open hands.
happy monday! i can’t believe i’m posting twice within a day but we don’t always have internet at our house so, i’m going to take advantage of it while we do :) anywho, i’ve seen this quote on a couple of blogs, and really love it. it has stuck with me and wanted to share it with you all. my mom has always told me growing up to not hold on to anything too tight, but keep everything with an open hands. i’ve had to do this more recently since having my little one. all of my dreams, my desire to travel, my big plans- i’ve had to hold with an open hand and surrender them over to the Lord and trust Him. even when it comes to photography, if i don’t keep an open hand with growing my little business, i find myself too easily distracted or discontent. i love this quote…
“when a woman has a kingdom heart, she has an active understanding of what matters most to the heart of God. she lives in the balance of passion and contentment. she learns to love well, give without regard to self, and forgive without hesitation. the woman with a kingdom heart may have a duffel bag full of possessions or enough treasures to fill a mansion, but she has learned to hold them with an open hand. hold everything with open hands. i don’t think we are ever allowed to grab hold of anything or anyone as though they matter more than the kingdom of heaven. when you hold relationships with open hands, then people come in and out of your life as gifts of grace to be cherished and enjoyed, not objects to be owned and manipulated. and then when you hold your dreams with open hands, you get to watch God resurrect what seemed dead and multiply what seemed small.”-uknown
