The rules are simple. Write for five minutes on a given word. Doesn't matter what you take on that word is.. just that you write for the sheer joy of writing. :) Then link up, visit the three bloggers ahead of you and comment, and boom (yes, a skylanders influence), you are done. :)
This week the word is FIGHT. So go ahead, write with me.. just for five minutes. When you are done.. Go over here to Lisa-Jo and link up. Come back and let me know that you did so that I can read what you wrote. Come on.. it's fun! :)
Fight. Oh, how I feel like I'm in a fight for the last three months or so.
My does won't breed well (at least my hollands won't). I lost a treasured doe to a bad delivery. I feel inadequate when it comes to schooling my boy... he's so smart and sharp and determined and I know he's going to leap past my abilities and I don't feel able to give him the wherewithal to undertake his own schooling. I want to worry about finances, my health (which has been a total irritation for the past 1.5 years), and my friends who go through their own battles. Through it all God keeps hammering away at me. TRUST. Trust me Girl. I know what I have in store for you. I know ALL your days. Relax.. just TRUST me. KNOW that I am your Lord and Saviour. Know that I WILL work all things out for your good.
Just relax and know this thing.
So I fight against myself. I fight to know my Lord better even when I feel so distracted by all the potential worries of the world. I keep fighting because that's what we have to do you know. We have to fight our own waywardness and insecurities and what all have to you, to really realize what matters most... Just trusting God and doing what he wants us to.
The rest of it is just chaff in the wind.. bound to be blown away.
I want to fight and live for what I'm supposed to.
Today though.. I feel weary and I don't want to.
BUT I will continue. I will fight. I will choose to trust my Lord and Saviour. AND THAT is the ONLY reason I will continue to fight. Cause he calls me to do so. And so I must.
Fight the good fight with all your might.
Lean NOT on your own understanding.
In ALL your ways acknowledge me.
And I (GOD) will direct your path.
