I was visiting some of my sister’s blogs today looking for encouragement which there is so much from so many wonderful Godly women available and I found the Five-minute Friday blog hop which asks you to link five minutes of free thought writing with no fore thought or going back. I thought I would try participating today so here we go:
Without you Lord I would not even be able to think about writing. In my weakness you are strong. I am so tired of telling people where it hurts and I am tired of hurting. I am tired of being a half a person. Nothing of the strength I once had is left. Exhausted muscles that won’t respond and a spine that I depended on so much has defied me. Yes I am an introvert but I need to have my spirit nourished and I need to corporately worship. That is what I strive for and that is what I hope for. Christ in me, the hope of glory. Yes, I trust you Lord and you are my sufficiency and I appreciate the revelations that you have given me throughout these last very long eight years of constant pain which makes it so hard to comprehend on some days but that is when the Holy Spirit refreshes me and encourages me as I write. I ask you Lord for your mercy and grace and help to lengthen this writing time with you as my guide. Help me to show your heart to those who need you and are needing encouragement. I lift my eyes to the hills from whence my help comes.
