Not A Fake-out!

Im linking up for the Five Minute Friday. Today’s prompt is “Fake.” Write for five minutes; unedited.

It wasn’t a fake out last week. I really am back. I’ve missed so many of you who have become such dear friends to me here in this place. But let’s move onto what I’m really here to write about this week.

Have you ever made friends that you just clicked with and you wondered why God brought them into your life? I’ve been so blessed and then I’ve had friendships that have just ended. I’ve often found myself questioning why? But then I’m reminded of the quote: “Friends come into our lives for a reason, a season or a lifetime.” Remembering these words I’ve learned to be grateful for those friends who’ve come my way.

I’m not saying it’s easy because it’s not. Tears have been shed as I’ve grieved some of these friendships. But I truly believe those friends that are meant for forever are the real ones sent by the one true God. That’s a promise that I can cling to.

Not Letting Doubt Win

I’ll bet you are doing a double take…yes I’m here. I’ve missed you all and am excited to be back in this space. I’m dipping my toes in the water and am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. Today’s prompt is “Doubt.” Write for five minutes; unedited.

Fear often takes a hold of us and paralyzes us. It’s hard to get out from the arm hold of fear. I think doubt is a lot like fear. We get caught up in its grips and can’t let go.

Have you ever doubted yourself? Doubted that you make a difference? Doubted that your words matter. I’ll be honest I think I stopped writing here in this space because I doubted that my words were making an impact. Doubted that I have something of value to say. But I’m not letting doubt win, my words matter. Your words matter.

Words have taught me what it means to speak truth. Words have given me my voice. Words have helped me to grow as I’ve finally claimed my enoughness; my worthiness. Words are so much a part of who God created me to be.
