Five Minute Friday - Safe Haven

Long before I had a blog to express myself, writing has been important to me.  Writing is the place where I can:

·        Work through ideas
·        Wrestle with God
·        Confess my fears, doubts and failures
·        Remind myself of God’s faithfulness in my life
·        Tune out the loud noise of this world
·        Quiet my mind and think
·        Reveal emotions beneath the surface that are impacting what I do and say and choices I make
·        Admit I have un-forgiveness in my heart and have the Lord remind me why I need to forgive and show me how
·        Learn to love my enemy
·        Be real
·        It’s the woodshed that God takes me to do business when I have a wrong heart or attitude
·        Heal from the hurts and wounds from everyday life

Writing has been and remains my safe haven.  Writer is part of who I am.

It’s another Saturday morn and I wanted to participate in Lisa-Jo Baker’s FiveMinute Friday writing challenge.  Head over to “Lisa Jo Baker”, and take some time to read some of the entries from other writers.  I can promise you that you will be blessed.
