In between (Back to Five Minute Fridays)

I'm getting a little too old to easily stay up until midnight to hand with my favorite Thursday/Friday playgroup, but Thank God for mornings. I love the discipline of FMF.  Happy Friday, y'all, I'm ready to flex my writing chops again, it's been too long. Wanna play along? Read/write/join another Five Minute Friday with us.   

1. Write for 5 minutes flat (to the bell, that is), no editing, over thinking (it's harder than you think)
2. Link back here and invite others to join the fun.
3. Visit the the brave soul who linked up before you, and a few others that catch your eye to encourage them in their comments.
Ready? Set? Go!

neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:39 (NIV)


I’m living in the in between. Between the years I spent working on my career and trying (Lord, I really am trying) to patiently await the next thing. I am in transition.

In transition. It is the gentle term we often use to describe our meantimes. In transition sounds better than “unemployed,” “foreclosed upon,” “separated.” Why do we care so much about the labels?

Just yesterday, a wise friend shared something with me that I’d never heard before….we are human beings not human doings, so why do we so obsess with what we do?

Who we are, like the nature of God, changes not. We are redeemed. We are fragile. We desire love. We might be in between jobs, cities, accomplishments, but the essential nature of who we are remains. We are human. We are children of the Most High King. We belong.

I might be on my way somewhere, on my way to do something, preparing to accomplish something, but I carry the same me with me when I start, as I proceed, when I arrive. I carry a piece of the Divine. In me. And, when it comes to God, I want nothing in between us. My prayer? That nothing will ever separate me from the Love of God. Nothing will ever get in between… 


I'm linking up with Lisa Jo Baker and with Laura at Missional Women
