Five Minute Friday: On Distance

Topic- Go- Write 5 minutes - stop!

Linking back to:



Go.

Distance- it separates us. 

It keeps me from hugging my daddy on a daily basis.  It keeps me from seeing my brother and his family.  It keeps me from many things I love, like the beach. But it isn't always a negative thing.  Distance also keeps us safe, or saves us from harm.  Like, the distance from a moving car keeps my kids safe when playing outside, and distance from a rising river, etc. protects homes and property. 

And, the distance that separates me from my hugging my daddy, keeps me really close to my husband and kids.  It's depends on your view of the distance.  New distances (like when traveling) makes me miss what is usually taken for granted.

And, as I think about distance, I also think about how it separates us emotionally.  Letting distance sneak into a relationship creates barriers.  I hate it when that happens.



And what is the greatest distance- the one that keeps a sinner from the Savior.  My Savior, who traveled the furthest distance possible, from heaven to the cross, just for me.  Not really, He went the distance for you to.  

We are celebrating Easter soon, and I'm so glad He went the distance.  I'm so thankful that there is no distance too far for God to reach me. 

What can separate us from the love of God- nothing.  

Stop.
