Present- #FiveminuteFriday #FMFParty

It's 2448 presently.
I have writers block.
There's a huge thunderstorm outside.
It sounds magnficent.
Squiggly red line.
I can't spell magnificent, ohh but I did that time.
I tend to think on the past a lot.
Good times.
Times of trial.
Times of trouble.
Times of blessing, and abundance.
Times of growth.
Times I faltered.
Let's not sugar coat it.
I could see God, in most all of it.
Even before I KNEW Him.
I could see His hand in my life in the past.
I don't understand it all.
There's still pain.
Beauty from ashes right?
The Lord will restore the years the locusts have eaten.
In the present I feel as if I'm in limbo.
Nope. Not there.
Not there yet.
Yes here.
Feeling in between.
But also knowing that it IS a gift.
In THIS present time.
I am a SAHM.
I am so thankful and blessed to be a SAHM.
I love where I am in that.
Where He has me.
I am still a sinner.
I am still loved.
Still forgiven.
In the present.
Always forgiven.
Not just the past.
Not just the present.
But also in the future.
I am....
out of time.

  1. Thank you for sharing. I tend to think about the past a lot too like a ghost following me around, and I tend to worry about the future too much, but we must enjoy the now as it is a blessing from God.

    Happy Friday!
