Five Minute Friday: Roots


Oh. Wow. This is my FIRST time linking up with the amazing Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday!!!


Five Minute Friday  


I have secretly envied this community of women and have watched them from a distance for quite some time now. I don't know why I was ever afraid to jump right into this incredible community of Christian women... but I was... I still am. Perhaps it was just that- they really are that incredible- and I did not know if I would fit in. 

But enough of that. 
I'm going to swallow my fear and take the plunge. 
I've been craving authentic community and maybe-just maybe- I will find it here. 

Today's prompt: Roots
I've got my timer set.... and.... GO!


Roots. We're supposed to be talking about roots. But all I can think about is my deep desire to be used by God. I want to be broken. Poured out. Spent. Utterly used for the glory of God. I desire to make a difference. But how? 

Sleepless nights. Restless days. God is stirring up something within me-but what is it? I sense that I am at a crossroads in my life. Maybe I am merely experiencing a mid-life crisis a decade early? I just cannot shake the feeling that God is at work.... that God is up to something- BIG! I just wish I could pin point what is on my mind. Receive some clarity- some focus. I feel so alone in my thoughts right now. So confused. 

Praise God that I am rooted deeply in Christ. He is Constant. Secure. Faithful. Never-changing. My Refuge and Strong Tower. Roots....

STOP!

  1. Hi Megan and welcome to FMF! Good for you for taking the plunge. I know exactly how you feel as I lurked for weeks before I summoned up the courage to try it out one Friday. I felt it was liberating and surprising to see where the prompt leads me. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do. Keep goin'!

    1. I'm so glad that I did, too! I honestly do not know why it took me so long, or what I was afraid of; but I'm grateful to join this community of sisters. I look forward to getting to know all of you!

  4. Megan, I love that feeling of stirring... (and I hate it too - as I have not always been one to embrace adventure or the unknown... aaahhh - but that is all part of the stirring, now isn't it?) Welcome to the FMF Community! I am new too... I jumped in (with no lurking) a few weeks ago! I think if I would have lurked, I too would have been intimidated by the sheer amazingness of this gathering of His heart wrapped in skin and beauty and honest brokenness! But jump in... that too is part of the stirring! It's the pulling together and creating community and resurrecting dreams and hope and vision! You've found it... authentic Community! Welcome home! <3
