Five Minute Friday - Reflect


Perfect timing! This week's Five Minute Friday prompt is reflect. And that's just what was I was doing!

Just a few minutes ago I was sitting here...looking over my Facebook page...my e-mail...my blog...reflecting...wondering where in the world have I gone?

The things that I write about (on the rare occassions that I do write) and the things that I post? It's like they're from someone else. I don't even feel like me anymore. I feel like I've been sucked into some sort of vortex that keeps pulling me down lower and lower and it's time to fight my way out.

As I reflect on the not-so-distant past, I see a change in myself that I don't like. I see that my focus has veered from all that, by God's standard, is truly important...my marriage, my family, my home, my relationship with Him...to people and situations that really don't matter much at all. I mean...they matter, yes, but they aren't (or shouldn't be) any concern of mine. I feel that, somehow, I've lost my way and I want to get back...but, at this precise moment I'm not sure how.

I do know the One Who does though and that is the Lord. It starts with a frest commitment to His Word and His way. Of that, I'm certain. Please pray for me as, with the Lord's help, I try to turn this beast around and get headed back down the right road in every area. I'm not sure what the balance is, but I know there is one.

Thanks so much!

Five Minute Friday - 4

Five Minute Friday - a free write, which means, as our hostess, Kate Motaung, says, "...no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation. Just write."

  2. Prayers up, Rebecca. I know the feeling.

    But knowing that you're not where you want to be is a large part of the way back. I hope.

    #3 at FMF this week, I think. Too tired to check, but here's the link -

  3. Visiting from FMF. Yes, how easy it is to walk off the path to the distractions of our world and the people that draw our attention AWAY from Him. I, too, covet the time with the Father and yet I make more time for crap. I pray we all get on the path of peace in our Father these coming days. Amen sister! High five for your honesty! Jenn

  4. I'm so sorry that you've gotten sucked into the 'Everybody Else's Business' show! I'm praying that God shows you the important things and helps you focus your tender heart on what's really important :).
