Five-Minute-Friday ~ Challenge

It can be a challenge being in the middle of our story...

Timer set..."GO..."

Each chapter lately seems to have a direction of its own! None of them make sense together, yet each one is a piece to a puzzle that just needs to be brought into alignment with the others. Sometimes it only takes time to figure it all out.

It's been a bit of a challenge for me, though. Keeping my head up isn't always easy. Depression can creep up unexpectedly. Then out of the blue, a nurse, a receptionist, even the insurance advocate can pull a rabbit out of their hat and clear the path as needed. Sometimes it feels like the wheels are moving really slow. Maybe they're moving slowly for a reason? 

After embracing many challenges over the years, I am not new to how to navigate these journeys. Each one has its own scenery. There were bumps to maybe hills along the way. Some have been like mountains. Yet once we reached the top, the view was remarkable. Sometimes the ride down the other side was just as thrilling and a challenge at the same time! Sometimes there are just as many tight turns that can slow us down. Though each one brought us to a place, a resolve, and in the way God had intended.

Then there are the challenges that I choose to participate in like the Annual Clickin Moms Summer Scavenger Hunt and the upcoming 31-Days Writing Challenge. They each have their own ways of challenging me as well. But I enjoy it! 

Regardless, all of the challenges had always been faced with a strong faith. Which is why each one was an example of just what prayers can do. What hope can create! How love heals. Patience prevails. Being calm in the storms that bring rainbows afterward...


...are a gift from God. There are so many signs that also allows us to see He's handy work. 

We just need to open our hearts to see them!

Don't forget, you can...
