Day 5 {Share} – Finding My Way Back

As a writer, I’ve always been able to share openly and honestly my heart and emotions.  I think one of the things that makes a great writer is the ability to be vulnerable.  Sure, there are things that one must keep to themselves, but there are also times when God will call us to share the most intimate portions of our lives in order to help someone else.

Part of processing through my feelings and emotions is the ability to share the stirrings of my heart and know that I will be met with love and acceptance on the other end.  As writers, we share our words,  but we bleed our hearts

When You Can’t Find Your Way Back

When I thought I lost me
You knew where I left me
You reintroduced me to your love
You picked up all my pieces
Put me back together

Standing In The Middle

Today I was reminded of God’s presence in my life. Not just when I am sitting still and listening for His voice. But He is with me every moment of every day.

This verse reminds me of how God is always near.

The Lord your God is in your midst,

he will rejoice over you with gladness;
    he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
(Zephaniah 3:17)

midst: in the middle of. the middle point or part.

I’ve felt as if my life has been stuck between one place and
