He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. - Colossians 1:15-16

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.
