It’s hard to believe a week ago I was soaking up the sun on the beaches of Pensacola Beach as I wrote my Five Minute Friday post. This week, I’m in the comfort of my home. (I love home, but I miss vacation.)
This is where many of us free-write for five minutes on a one-word prompt, and we come together at Lisa-Jo Baker’s to share it. No concern with editing, grammar, punctuation. Imperfect, but free writing! Come join us, even if you don’t have a blog.
This week’s word:
Recently while on vacation, I took some dedicated time to reflect on my life over the past year. It’s been quite a personal journey.
To the world, it may look as if I have lost much. Things I once had in my life, things that I thought defined me, things I thought I couldn’t live without, have been removed from my life. I have found these to be unimportant and not needed in my life after all.
And it may very well appear from the outside looking in, I’ve been lost on this path of life. My career path seems to be full of zigs and zags, full of turns and twists. It’s almost a little comical looking at it from afar. But yet, I can see how one step has prepared me for the next.
For those who desire to follow God’s will for our lives, we can rest secure in knowing He is in control. The things that are removed from our lives, the new things added, and the steps God guides us through, are all a part of His plan.
He says it in His word, “Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you.” He is with us–always.
I am not lost.
And neither are you, if you are following Jesus.
As God has very recently opened a brand new door for me to walk through–and another twist on this journey–even though I don’t understand it, I’m walking through it. Trusting Him every step of the way. Holding His hand as I do so. Excited to see where He’s going to lead me next.
Have a blessed Friday, friends!
