Journey to Trust/ Five Minute Friday (Day 4)


I've been doing a bit of reading - my own words, Emily's book, and Lisa-Jo's Five Minute Friday. Each has significance for me. They speak of art and story and words.

Lisa-Jo's word for today is "Write."

start:

I write in different seasons and times - yet the words keep circling back on themselves. There is a repetition, a recurring theme - and I wonder that others don't get tired of it.

It isn't intentional. It comes from somewhere deep inside and works its way to the surface over and over again. It is this matter of trust.

I wonder why and realize it is, in part, my story. We write our story in so many ways. It spills out of the depths of who we are as we walk through the minutes and hours of our days. It forms us and touches the lives most precious to us - and the ones we hardly know.

The Father is crafting trust onto the pages of my story. It is life-changing and so it weaves its way in and through my words over and over again. It has meaning and purpose.  It begins to shape the very soul of me.
It has not come easily. There has been a dying to other things so that this one true thing might live in a heart that is desperate for Him.

And so I write of trust.

So beautiful! I feel that too--that writing always circles back to the same root in some form or fashion. I think God gives us a story he wants us to share and we can't get away from it. Thank you for sharing what God is calling you to share! Blessings!

Dear Linda
Oh, it still amazes me how our Pappa doesn't demand that we trust Him; He shows us over and over and over again how trustworthy He is, for trust is not a commodity, it is something that can only be earned through steadfast, unconditional love!

To trust Him. To know He is good no matter our circumstance. And to give thanks for His love. I'm with you...xo

Very mature, I haven't got there yet as far as writing my story.
Love xx

Linda said...

Yes Mia. I am astounded at His love and infinite patience with my ever so slow growth. Thank you so much for your wise words.

Oh Jan - my story is so far from finished. It has been a journey of one step forward, two steps back. But the Father has been so good and gracious to me. Thank you so much for coming to visit.

Thank you Jacque. He is, indeed, a trustworthy, loving Father.
