Day 13: Reach

Reach (verb) to stretch out : extend

Extend (transitive verb): to spread or stretch forth; to stretch out to fullest length; to exert (oneself) to full capacity  

“No, dear brothers, I am still not all I should be, but I am bringing all my energies to bear on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I strain to reach the end of the race and receive the prize for which God is calling us up to heaven because of what Christ Jesus did for us” (Philippians 3:13-14, TLB).

Perhaps, like me, you read the definitions for reach and extend and the Scripture verses, and acknowledge that this is not how you are living. This does not describe your walk with God. Thankfully, with our moment by moment surrender to God’s seasoning process and with His help, this can be true of us.

This post is for Day 13 of the 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes Writing Challenge. The theme of my series is, “Season,” based on the definition, “make (wood) suitable for use as timber by adjusting its moisture content to that of the environment in which it will be used.” Please click here to find the Table of Contents and links to other posts in the series.
