Path | Five Minute Friday | #fmf

Writing with Kate Motaung @ #FiveMinuteFriday – Our writing prompt is “Path” ~

5 minutes to write & here goes:

 

path-600x600

I was a young girl and there were many paths. Too many to choose from in fact.  Overwhelmed by it all, I took none of them.

And so started a cycle of desiring but never walking.  Of longing but cloaking myself in inadequacy.

I loved God and wanted more of Him but what did that path look like?

I had chosen my own road and messed up so badly. Would He dare take me back?

When I came back what would the path look like? Where would I go from there?

The road was lonely for years, and my heart reaches out with a plea to others who are glancing at the many paths pining for their love, and know this: God never leaves you, darling.

He is always there right by your side, though you feel the dark has closed in so low upon your skin that you may never see the light of day once again -you will once more just wait and see.

The dark will unveil off you and God’s light will kiss your face.  His path is this: embrace

  1. Meg- you may have felt your paths were messed up, but you are who you are because of those paths. God filters what has happened to us. That might lead us to question “why,” but God knows what He’s doing. We don’t have to love the hard times, though we need to trust God has our back.
    He’s leading you to write and share. He’s embracing you and letting you know you it’s safe to show Him.
    Your #FreshMarketFriday neighbor,
    Julie

    1. Thank you, Julie! I will never understand how He is so loving and patient through all the mess -but it does lead me to have more and more mercy on those around me now. I am in awe of his kindness and weaving in our lives!

  2. Meg, This is so truthfully spoken: “He is always there right by your side, though you feel the dark has closed in so low upon your skin that you may never see the light of day once again ” Yes, sometimes it actually seems that we can feel the darkness brushing our skin. I am so grateful that God understands how shaken we are in those times! Thank you for this reminder to encourage each other in those dark places to wait for God to bring light to the path once again!

  3. Beautiful writing- and I love how God never gives up on us, that even when the path seems dark, even when we go our own way, he is still there and his love is unfailing.

  4. Hi Meg, He will lead us in the path of righteousness.
    We all want to choose our way but when we come to Him, He takes us to where He chooses for us😃
    No sister we all have come a long way but His Mercies speaks!

  5. Beautiful, beautiful true words, Meg. Love this especially: “He is always there right by your side, though you feel the dark has closed in so low upon your skin that you may never see the light of day once again -you will once more just wait and see.” Oh yes, we will, even then. Psalm 139: 12 (NIV)
    even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.
    Oh how I’ve been reminded of that lately as I’ve gone back to read my PTSD day journals: just wow. Thank you for encouraging others here…These words will be so precious to those walking in the dark right now.
