Five Minute Friday: Mighty

We show up in all the ways: tired, joyful, troubled, satisfied, lonely, bubbling over, and all the ways you can think of.  But we show up, and we write for five minutes every Friday on a one word prompt.  It’s one of the best communities you’ll find online.  Want to join us?  Go here for all the details.  Now, let’s write.

I don’t feel it.  On this night when I have yet again dodged the blows and the sharp, pointed words aimed at my heart.  I feel anything but mighty.  I feel small and weary, that’s what I feel.  I feel wounded, left bleeding on the battlefield.  I want to get up and walk away but I can’t.

And yet.

Under the weariness and the tears and the desperate desire for answers, my heart still beats.

There is Something mighty at work in me.

It’s not of me, it’s in me.  And that’s what keeps me walking this path, one foot in front of the other.

On the days when I want to give up (and there are a lot of those), that Something (Someone) in me whispers of hope.

It’s not over yet.

There’s still hope, as long as my heart still beats.

  1. Oh sweet friend – there is ALWAYS hope! Praying for you tonight! Sending hugs and chocolate and lots of grace, whispering He’s got this… He’s got you… and you are not failing over and over and over!

  2. Your post reminded me of what it felt like to raise a rebellious teen – and, no, I couldn’t walk away – I wasn’t going to give up no matter how much I hurt – and it was Him in me that made all the difference for both of us! I don’t know your challenge – but am so glad He is in there with you!
