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