5 Minute Friday - Write

Joining Lisa Jo and the girls today...5 minutes, no edits and no those that came before.


I strain, I stress, I worry...what if the words don't come.  Yet they do.  They press in and ask to be put down.  They come in a flood and seem to overwhelm.  They come in good days and bad days.  They come to comfort and correct.  They come to instruct and to witness.  But I am just amazed still, that they come at all.  Why this?  Why these?  To comfort those as I have comforted you. And so I wait.  WAIT.  For the words I long to hear, for the words I long to know, for the words I long for others to know.  To share the good and the bad.  To love and to be loved.  To do the thing that I know He created me to do.  To do the thing that I never seem to doubt.  I write.  Thankful.



  1. I love how you described the process of writing. I think it's universal — we all wait and wonder if the words will come. And He is faithful to provide when the time is right.

  2. You hit the nail on the head, to comfort those as I have comforted you. YES! Keep writing, keep comforting.

  3. You write to encourage. You write because your heart overflows and your tongue is the pen of a ready writer!
