Accepting the ache

Today I'm joining Lisa-Jo at The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday where she asks to:
Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking
The prompt for today is ache --

Too many years of inactivity have left me in a state.
I am stiff and find places that I didn’t know existed until they began to hurt.
But the last few months I have slowly begun working my way back to fitness.
All that I used to know from my past life as a personal trainer and instructor comes flooding back in waves.
Yes, I know that muscle and I even know why the pain is there

My knees are weak, torn-up, and yet I press in and continue on for the moving is what will eventually help them back to health.

Is this any different from the times I subject my heart to the ache of loving
fully aware that the ache itself spurs me on to deeper love?

I am open inside, the way He created me
more raw than these tendons and sinews
the hurts come easy
leaving holes where He pours out.
