Five Minute Friday: Brave

Linking today with Gypsy Mama where one word is our prompt… write for five minutes, no over-thinking, no backtracking, no editing.  Here we go….


I don’t know what’s out there anymore… it’s fuzzy and gray.

How can I be this old and suddenly not know where I’m going.  I like to plan… to have a plan.  This is something I didn’t plan for…

Another’s refusal to make a plan for her life has consumed mine.

And all I know to do is put one foot in front of the other, cook the food, clean the bathrooms, vacumn the floor.

Are my dreams still out there?  Will there still be time?

I hang on to the only thing I know for sure………

…Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you saying “This is the way, walk in it”  Isaiah 30:21

Who would have ever guessed my bravest moment of the day would just be to face it… and put the coffee on.

  1. Oh I think while we’re all pondering our ability to be brave ~ I want to gather us all up together and breathe strength and hope into each one of us. God loves us so much that He is doing that right now. Didn’t you feel Him … while you were writing? I think you did. {I did too.}
    May many blessings be bestowed on you will you walk in His love,


    1. I always know, deep down, that it is all securely in God’s hands – – yesterday started as one of those days that are hard to face. But we do, don’t we 🙂 (and it was much better by the end of the day!)


  2. Challenges come in all shapes and sizes. And our bravery must be prepared and ready for each as it falls in our laps (or slaps us in the face!). Thanks for reminding me that my bravery and courage come from the One who equips us completely.


    1. Thanks much for stopping by, Cristal 🙂 Appreciate your words of encouragement – – especially the bravery that “slaps us in the face” – – kind of where I’ve been lately 🙂 But I am learning He does equip us completely!
