Today for the first time I am stepping out and being brave and joining one of my blogging friends, Lisa-Jo Baker's  Five Minute Friday #FMF writing challenge.

This is where a brave and beautiful bunch gather every week to find out what comes out when we all spend five minutes writing on the same topic and then sharing them.

These are the guidelines.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
I encourage you to check out Lisa's blog here and also invite you to join us and give us your best five minutes on the topic -


Here I GO!!

This is what I know about being BRAVE...

I Am Not.

But He Is.

And He is with me and goes with me.

When I am faced with my own failures.
He is with me.

When I am faced with challenges of being a mom.
He is with me.

When I am faced with wounds from others.
He is with me.

When I am faced with loss.
He is with me.

When I am struggling to understand.
He is with me.

When I am faced with a diagnosis of cancer.
He is with me.

When all of this and more make me tremble and feel like I am frightfully stranded at the top of the broken Ferris Wheel - I open the Word or put on some Worship music and I am reminded.

He is hope.
He is strength.
He is peace.
He is wisdom.
He is healing.
He is courage.

And He is the source that is powerfully cheering & unbelievably providing these things so we can face and get through it all...somehow - someway.  

His Way.

Remembering His Word and His provisions from the
 past - helps me to be able to face what comes to my doorstep in the future.

Be strong and courageous.
Do not be afraid...
for it is the Lord your God who goes with you.
He will not leave you or forsake you.
Deuteronomy 31:6
