Our writing prompt is “brave”
Our assignment is to write for five minutes without editing
she said “your brave.”
my reply “no. really, I’m not.
try scared out of my mind !!
but did I have a choice???
as I lay WIDE AWAKE a year ago in January
with heart pounding OUT-OF-MY-CHEST
with every beat as though it were SHOUTING AT ME
COME. HOME. AND. MOTHER. YOUR. CHILDREN!
THE CHILDREN YOU BEGGED ME FOR…
does it mean I am any less scared??
or do I question any less??
am I doing this right?
does my parenting please you Lord?
are they listening?
should I have handled that differently?
was I loving?
am I forgiving?
I question myself all day long
which keeps me needy of HIM
He wants me to NEED HIM more everyday.
and I do
because I want to live
I want to LIVE BRAVE! Don’t you??
Are you feeling prompted to take a step of faith?
To walk into unknown waters?
Let me encourage you.
He is faithful.
