Recover

Five Minute Friday
Consider the flowers…will he not also care for you.


So many goals swirling in my brain. So many dreams wanting to take root. I see them. They give me hope that new things are wanting to break through. This year I want to take time to hone the craft of writing. Five Minute Friday is a great place for me practice and be encouraged by other writers as I write. I will set the timer for five minutes and then write. Here we go! I am excited to invite you in, welcome.


Recover

A word spoken in truth
A desire to love with our family
good words, assumptions, anomaly 

Grace covered wounds
moving aside, pushed away
reminded though that He stays 

A sense of loss lingers
a blessing taken
yet my faith remains unshaken

I believe I will see His goodness
I hear my friends voice
tears spill as I rejoice

Stay there
I will come for you
the ones who would come are few

His grace invades my day
my soul buoys in grace
his love my safe space

He carries me
His love recovers me from despair
He is my recovery.

Middle

Spring is a middle that is most notable for the beginning. But the life we see pushing forward to begin its life in the light is not the beginning. The beginning was lonely, dark, and required death. There would be no middle without that, there would be no bud or bloom-the seed had to die first.

So it is with our dreams and lives, our beginnings were dark and unknown and definitely mysterious. Then why is it that we expect then to jump right into the middle? We must acknowledge that we can not have a middle that is lush and full without a beginning that requires complete surrender of our dreams.

Pressure

I feel the pressure that comes with the desire to create. And yet the pressure also becomes a catalyst one that propels you to take action. Sometimes, we second guess ourselves and let our thoughts paralyze us.

But what if today instead we allow our minds to focus on prayer as we surrender the dreams and desires to the one who holds all things together?

here is a breath prayer for you as you find rest in Him.

inhale: Lord my stay

exhale: I trade pressure for your presence.

Sunrise

Brilliant with radiance
Ushering in newness
Ushering in Hope
Through hardship and storms

Unstoppable
You are a constant in life
Your constancy of grace a testament
In times of sweet abundance

New morning mercies
Rise as you rise
Deliberate in your rising
Never faltering in your light

So is your Maker sun and soul
The one who set your boundaries
And timed your clock perfectly
He also is first to rise

To rise in love
To rise in strength
To gracefully give
New morning mercies

He gives them freely
made just for you this day
Turn your heart to Him
He dawns new and daily
ready for you he waits.
