This chapter brought so much emotion out of me this week. I’ve been looking at my own “precipice” (a very steep rock face or cliff, typically a tall one) and wondering if I have the strength and faith to ascend the mountain. I am in awe, continually, as to God’s timing in my re-reading of this book. Every chapter so correlates to where I am on my own journey. I can almost feel the hands of Sorrow and Suffering on either side as they come along side of me on this journey.

Five Minute Friday: Ready

By Barbie   /     Sep 11, 2014  /     My 5 Minute Fridays  /     25 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.



Ready or not, He’s calling me out.

I’m not sure I feel equipped for this next part of my journey.  I’ve been tucked away inside the four walls of this place for nearly a decade.  I’ve been surrounded by friends, family really, and it’s been good.
