Friday!! FMF time. Five minutes of non-edited writing in a community of wonderful writers/bloggers. Lisa Jo Baker started this thing and it has taken on a real life wonderful-ness that I’ve had the opportunity to participate in at Allume. If you’re going this year make sure you take time for that little side event! 🙂
Today’s prompt: BLOOM
There is a small place in my heart that is starting to gain light.
I can feel a small unfurling of something that wasn’t there a few days ago.
God, in his faithfulness, has been whispering sweet somethings in my ear for the last few weeks.
I am with you.
I will fight for you.
I want this for you.
You will be okay.
There are things I want for you.
Watch what I can do.
They will be okay.
I’ve got this.
And I think I am starting to believe it. I want to believe it before anything actually happens. BEFORE there is good news, BEFORE I learn it, BEFORE I see the faith worked out. I want to believe and trust.
And I think maybe I am starting.
HOPE is beginning to bloom.
That may be a first…I was done before my five minutes were up!
I will take the last minutes to invite you to yesterday’s post where I began a conversation that will keep going over the next several months as I look into Bonnie Gray’s book, Finding Spiritual Whitespace.
