The Weekend Brew: Because (Five Minute Friday)

By Barbie   /     Sep 26, 2014  /     My 5 Minute Fridays, The Weekend Brew  /     45 Comments

Today I am joining a beautiful community of writers for the Five Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes for the joy of writing.  No editing or backtracking necessary.  No need to be perfect.  This is where I get to write, letting it all go, allowing the words tucked away deep inside my heart to find their voice.



There were moments today when I felt as if I couldn’t breathe.  The weeks of putting my emotions in separate little compartments, in order to function and get through the tasks that needed to be accomplished leading up to today, well, they all came crashing down this evening.

The Weekend Brew: Lead Me To The Rock

I’m not much for rock climbing.  Actually, I’m not really the active, outdoorsy type.  I love to be outside, breathing in fresh air and allowing a gentle, cool wind to brush against my cheeks while I listen to the leaves crunch underneath my feet.  But rock climbing is not my idea of fun.

I am learning that the higher I go, the easier it is to breath and the clearer it is to see. Getting to the top though, is often met with resistance, fear, exhaustion and feelings of wanting to turn back and run to lower ground.

All too often a song comes along that moves me to tears.  This one has been on repeat for a long time.  Not only is it anointed, but every time I listen to it I get this picture of me, being held in the Father’s arms. I’m a little girl, and He is big and strong, and He twirls me around and around.  As long as I remain there, safe in His arms, I know everything will be okay.

In times of uncertainty, it brings me much peace knowing that my steady, constant God has a good plan for my life.
