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.
Welcome back! (Even though I don’t think we’ve met before!) I’ve had the same doubts about what I write and some of the things I do and wondered whether it matters. I’ve decided it matters to me. Visiting from FMF#19
You’re here, oh happy day!
Nothing has been really clear,
since when you went away.
I took to the wine and beer,
searching wisdom left behind,
but now I see your face again,
and I have a steadied mind
that sought for that which might remain
in absence of sagacity;
today I at last have put away
the armour of stupidity
and in your words I hear The Way,
the path, the torture and the Cross
and, interim, there’s been no loss.
welcome back! beautiful post! I visited your blog just a couple days ago because I wondered if you really hadn’t updated or my feed was mistaken.
Welcome back! I enjoyed this encouragement.
I just restarted my blog after a year off. I remember that first post back, my blog stats are no where near what they used to be and I doubt if I really have anything interesting to say. Thank you for sharing! Visit from FMF #29
I echo Kym’s thoughts… it matters to me, ergo I write. 🙂 It matters to you, and God nudged you back, ergo it matters. Write on! FMF32
I have had the same doubts.
