5 Minute Friday

Joining Lisa Jo and the girls or 5 Minute Friday.  No edits, no re-writes and love those that came before you.

Prompt: Write

Write...I have done it my entire life.  It's how I processed my feelings even as a little girl.  After I became a Christian, I began journaling.  Stop and start.  I wrote my story once before, when it was my only story. When God was showing me how to share what He had done with painful things in my life.  I made copies and shared with those close to me.  That was long, long ago.  For the past few years I journaled...when I was close to God and when I was far away...and at one point, an entry simply stated....will I ever write anything different?  I am so tired of hearing myself say the same thing over and over...He pulled me back to writing very early on the morning that my life would change abruptly.  And the words that I wrote let me know now, He had prepared my very soul for the battle I would be facing....and I wrote.  And on that day for the next year, I wrote on paper.  And then He called me to this again, writing on a blog, to share me, my story and what He has done.  And so I write.  Just like I breathe. I write.  Thankful.
