My Five Minute Friday on: Here
I don't always like being here.
And before everyone starts to worry about my sanity I don't mean alive.
Like the space between two mountains or the dip between two waves, I'm having a valley moment. And usually when I find myself here I feel the need to scurry my way back up to the peaceful place at the top with the great view.
Because on the mountain you can look back and you can see forward and where you are sort of makes more sense.
But down in the valley all I see is the long climb back to the top. It can feel so overwhelming.
Here is hard — sometimes.
But instead of trying to find my way out, I'm working to be content to just sit here for a while. Because what brought me here is probably worth looking at and not hiding from.
Here is ugly — sometimes.
Seeing things I don't really want to see — in me. There's a battle here between who I am and who I want to be. The punches are landing and I'm left feeling worn and bruised. But don't we all live with this ugly?
So I'm seeking God here. Because I don't know what else to do. I'm relying too much on everything but Him. Maybe that's what I'm supposed to see.
The more I don't like being here, the more I think I should stay. And work it out and see it through.
Here I am, Lord. Will you come and be with me in the valley? And lead me to higher ground — when I'm ready?
