5 Minute Friday: In Between


It’s called 5 Minute Friday’s.

It’s a group of writers, who after receiving a word prompt, have 5 minutes to write. Lisa-Jo Baker challenges us to write for 5 minutes with no grammar rules, no editing, just set the timer and Go! Want to join us? Find out how, {here}.

Here I….



How appropriate.

That I should hear the echoes of God’s voice.

That I should see the ripples of stones tossed into calm rivers.

Moving out. Out of my comfort zone.

Dancing to this new rhythm.

Not where I was…

but not quite where I’m going.

In Between.

The place where faith rises up

speaking life into dreams which slumbered.

In Between.

Where process builds us.

Testing strengthens us.

Waiting grows us.

In Between.

Where we choose to believe that here is just as important as there.

Where questions await answers.

Promises await fulfillment.

Where we are being perfected.

And no one but God gets the glory.

  1. that was just awesome! i loved “Where we are being perfected. And no one but God gets the glory.” that was a great finish of only 5 minutes because its in those 5 minutes that already we ARE “being perfected”!!

    • Confidentingrace, thanks for stopping by. I set my smartphone’s timer, breathe, and go at it. 5 Minute Fridays are awesome because they give me a way to end a week of blogging stress free… Truly though, I feel like each week that I see the word for the day, it’s something I’ve been working through that week. So I guess I’m in awe of the way God echoes through our day…;)
