Five Minute Friday - Unexpected

I am joining in with Five Minute Friday over at The Gypsy Mama. Where you write for 5 minutes - no more and no less and no editing. Each week is a new topic and today it was UNEXPECTED. Check out the link and see what others have written!

I have found my life to be unexpected.  Where I have thought I would be, I am not.  Arms lay bare.  Quivers are empty.  Yet, this is where I find myself trying to make sense of it – the unexpected life.  Seeking to learn to release the dreams that will never be – dreams that were mine but apparently not His. 

Unexpected, doesn't mean unwanted.  There is much in my life that is worth the wanting.  I have to learn to leave and lean.  Giving up and letting go isn't the easy way but it appears to be what He desires.

Unexpected, doesn't mean alone.  He is with me.  He is the strong and mighty tower, where I can run to for my help.  He is the heart to seek the shoulder to lean on the arms to wrap around the catcher of my tears.

  1. oh friend. my heart does go out to you. I don't know your situation completely but God does. and you are right..."He knows the plans he has for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you ...plans to give you a future and a HOPE."

    I pray big HOPE for you sweet friend.

  2. This is very nice and shows us faith in God is all it takes.
    And even if your dreams are not his, it is maybe because he knows best and use the unexpected to show you there can be much to discover on things we don't master.
    take care.

  3. this really spoke to my heart today. life is indeed unexpected but then God shows up...

  4. Kelly, thanks for your kind words and prayer. With a BIG GOD comes BIG HOPE!

    MarieHarmony, He does know best and I am learning - ever be it slowly - to rest and trust in Him.

    Beth, He is always showing up at just the right times...or is it more likely that I finally see where He has always been!

  5. I am always touched when I come by here.

    Blessings and prayers,
