Thankful_January 16_[FMF]_Send

We interrupt thankful to bring you Five Minute Friday of which I am thankful, so really it’s not an interruption is it? The word is send.


Once upon a time, I had adventures. I went places. I did things. I shared the love of Christ on an international scale. It was exciting. It was exhausting. It was marvelous.

I find myself wondering. Will I ever have adventures like that again? Am I willing? Is it too late for me? Do I dare to dream a new dream? Go to new places? Would the Lord use me again for something above and beyond?

Like the prophet Isaiah says ~

Isaiah 6:8
Then I heard the Lord’s voice, saying, “Whom can I send? Who will go for us?” So I said, “Here I am. Send me!”

Oh how I hope!

Is there anything worse than leaving?

I suppose it depends. I’m happy to leave this month behind, with all its emotional ups and downs and challenges.

I’m not happy to leave the people I love behind. It takes a toll on me, brings me to a place I don’t like, leaves me feeling lost, lonely.

I’m happy at the end of a busy work day, to leave the stress behind.

I’m not happy to leave the comfort of my bed, when the light breaks and it’s time to start all over.

I’m happy to leave this writing challenge behind, to move on to something new.

lack of interest, enthusiasm, or concern.
“widespread apathy among students”
synonyms: indifference, lack of interest, lack of enthusiasm, lack of concern, unconcern, uninterestedness, unresponsiveness, impassivity, dispassion, lethargy, languor, ennui; rare acedia
“widespread apathy among the voters”

I’m in the thick of it, stuck in the muck and mire of something undefinable, waiting for my enthusiasm, interest to return.

Maybe it’s because of the season? We’re coming to the end of the year. The harvesting is nearly finished. The clocks are “falling behind” this weekend. The days are getting shorter. I’ve always wished I were a bear so I could crawl into a cave for the winter and hibernate. It just seems like such a lovely idea.

So I wait for God to infuse my heart with springtime joy. I know He will. It’s just a matter of time.
