Just Walk

Walk

“Come on, sweet girl,” I heard Abba’s soothing voice as He picked me up off the ground, wiping the dust and gravel off of me, “You’ll be okay. Just walk. Just take one step at a time and follow after me. You can do it!”

I was confused at what had happened and why I had been on the ground in the first place. I couldn’t remember what had happened. I felt slightly out of sorts and my eyes seemed to burn just a little but I chose to focus on Abba’s voice.

I chose to listen to him as he encouraged me. He knew what had happened and what was next. He knew exactly what I needed and how to best take care of me. He told me to walk one step at a time and so that I would do.

Begin Again

I am joining with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Begin

To begin again
To start fresh, anew
To look at things differently
To choose life wholeheartedly
To run hard again

Let’s start this race together
In order to finish it together
Take in your surroundings and set your pace
And know that you know
Above all else
He is with you
He is for you
His goodness surrounds you
And will keep you

Choose to set your mind to begin again
The twists and turns of life take us on a journey
We never could have imagined
And never could have prepared for

So when life takes a hard left
Hang on
Choose to trust
He hasn’t forgotten nor forsaken you

His everlasting love
For His firstborn people Israel
Is proof positive
That He is faithful
And He does not lie

G-d bless Israel today in her day of difficulty
And teach us to pray with you
And teach us to trust who you are to Israel
And in this, may we be upheld in our day of testing
As we stand with Israel in hers

Running the Race – G-d’s Choice

I am joining with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes about a word. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

Today’s prompt is:

Finish

To choose to begin to run the race,
to follow hard,
to let G-d in and let sin out
What a phenomenal choice
What a beautiful gift
For in all reality, I didn’t choose Him,
Rather, He chose me

He chose me

Let it sink in

The G-d of all creation,
The G-d of the universe,
The G-d of Israel,
The one G-d,
Chose, me!

This is my reason,
my motivation,
my great hope

He is my reason,
my motivation,
my great hope

I choose You back, G-d
I love You so
You are my all and there is no other
There will never be another like You
You began this work
Thank you
You will finish this work
Thank You

There is no other G-d like You
You stand alone
You stand with me in faithfulness when I am weak and misguided
You stand with Israel when she is broken and difficult
You are faithful and there is no other

I thank You that in You and through You and by You
I have been able to run this race
I thank You that in You and through You and by You
I will be able to finish this race
