Five minute Friday: Where a beautiful crowd spends five minutes all writing on the same topic and then share over here. Where we just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

Five Minute Friday



I stand with outstretched arms to welcome what's coming. I'm done with the striving and the stomping of my feet and with the tantrums I have in my head and the ones I have in real life, the ones I have as I wrestle with dissatisfaction.

I welcome what is. I welcome what is right now. I welcome this place God has me (wherever that may be). I welcome the strife. I welcome the tears. I welcome the work. I welcome the growing pains. I know it WILL all work for my good. I TRUST that even if now doesn't feel good, HE is good. And since God is always good, I will welcome whatever He has for me. 

And since God is always good, I welcome His grace, His gift, His Joy in all things. All things. All things because I will not pick and choose what parts of His plan I welcome. I welcome interruptions and change in plans. I welcome tears with math lessons and wiggly little boys. I welcome conflict with my husband and family in need on the phone. I welcome whatever or whomever God lays before me.



Hello and Welcome. Just a note on comments. I leave them open but I ask that comments be respectful. To me, to God and to His word. I will remove anything that isn't.
