Voice (Five Minute Friday)

So, a bunch of my girls are hanging at Allume and all I got was a writing prompt (sorry, I couldn't resist).
Welcome to Five Minute Friday.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking (harder than it sounds)
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Visit the person who linked up before 
you & encourage them in their comments.
OK, are you ready? Come on and join the fun!

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Colossians 3:2 (NIV)



Writing helped me find mine. Not the one I use, but the one I didn't know I had. That voice is different than the one I use to work. Hers is clearer. There is patience and discernment in that voice. There is depth, a kind of eternal wisdom in that voice. Had my life not turned on its head, I doubt I'd have ever let her out.

Sometimes, God takes away all your other options to focus you; to make you pay attention to Him. The smart people get it right the first time. I, however, need multiple reminders. Now that I (We) have let that voice speak, she doesn't want to stop talking. She's noisy, even inside my head. She talks to me a lot. When I let her get in front of a keyboard, she'll talk to anyone who'll listen. Sometimes she doesn't listen to me. She's listening to God, and since His Plans and His Words are better than mine, she sets her voice on things above.

I love listening to her. She is the wise I want to be. She is my gift…the unintended consequence of a life well-lived, but in need of repositioning. I am repositioned. She is my GPS (global, not Godly).

And we're done. 

On Fridays, I pray and play with LisaJo and Laura, and the Christian Mommy Bloggers
