GO

This week I stopped by to see a friend. She is a dear friend. We often share each others tales and pray for each other. I have been at a crossroads as of late. It is a crossroads that now has lasted about 4 years.

 And I am weary of the waiting. 

I am ready to move...
I am ready to advance.....
I am ready to feel like I am "living" again.....

I know all of the cliches that "waiting time is not wasted time" and "you know Moses waited 40 years before he was ready for what God had for him" In my head, I know that..... 

When I drove by my friend's house and saw that she was home I pulled in the driveway. 
Put my car in park and knocked on her door.
She invited me into her quilting room. It is the place that we often chat. It is filled with quilting and sewing projects. And on the walls she has photos of her family, beautiful black and white photos of her mom, sisters, brothers and grandparents. As I sit on her futon and wrap one of her quilts around me I begin to talk to her about my frustrations, the questions, the I don't know what to do's. 
As she listens, she waits till I am done and takes a breath to tell me I have to choose joy.
If I can't choose joy then I have to release myself to let go. I knew what she meant.
Let go of expectations.........
Let go of hurts...............
Let go of dreams.................
 As I saw the prompt tonight of "willing" my thoughts directly went to the conversation
and I have come to the conclusion....

"Lord I am willing to be made willing...."

Stop

Five Minute Friday
