Same // Five Minute Friday
I’m not sure how I feel about this word. The first thing that came to mind is how I am feeling. I feel the same way I did months ago, probably a couple of years ago. My spirit, soul and body feel trapped in time, waiting to be set free. Oh, I know I am free, because He came — and He is the same yesterday, today and forever. He does not change. But I do not see progress in my personal, physical or spiritual life and I’ve grown weary of reaching.
It takes energy to move from a place of mundaneness, where you can walk through your day with your eyes closed, into a life that flows in abundance. It’s a promise, but then why don’t I feel it?
Feelings — they are a tricky thing. I can tend to get caught up in them, and begin to believe the lie that my life will remain the same. I often fear that what I so desperately long to see changed in my life will remain stagnant, dormant and lifeless among murky waters.
I want so desperately to live joy-filled and abundant life. But disappointment and disillusionment have taken up residence in my heart, and until I am determined to clean house so to speak, I know that nothing will ever change.
Oh that God would give me the courage to want to change. May He make me desperate to see the fullness of abundance released in my life.

Proudly linking up with Kate and some of the most beautiful voices on the web at the Five Minute Friday. This is where we write for just five minutes on a word prompt. No editing or backtracking. Just words flowing freely from my heart to yours.
