It’s been a while since I last joined my Five Minute Friday community. The fall is such a busy time for our family and so each moment to pause and write seems like a fleck of gold in a sea of rushing waters. This week our prompt is While.
While I have been away my heart has grown and stretched.
I’ve opened up to new ideas and experienced some rest.
I wrestled with God and like Jacob left injured and blessed-
All because I listened and took the time to invest.
While I’ve been away I embraced the beauty of the fall.
Like the gorgeous leaves now dropping, I learned the beauty in the raw.
I let my heart bleed on the pages as my pen moved with each scrawl.
With tears down my cheek, I learned to live by following the call.
While I’ve been away family has been my priority.
The time we have together is the most precious thing to me.
On this journey together, I hope to never miss a scene.
Because their hearts are golden like the flecks in a rushing sea.
While I’ve been away I’ve listened, fasted, and prayed.
I’ve let the Lord direct my steps and not always known the way.
Through faith I’m learning that tough questions are always okay.
My God can handle the wrestling match in order to build my faith.
