Can you write for 5 minutes straight without editing? Can you just write? Today I am using Lisa-Jo’s writing prompt of real…
Real. I see a four letter word that screams at me to tell it like it is. Tell you that I am worn thin by my marginless life. Tell you that I have met myself coming and going and I am slap.worn.out. All things are good but not all things are good for me. But lately, I’ve been trying to do all and be all to all people and it feels like I am just not quite all me.
I hear about being Jesus with skin on to others and the Real me just wants Jesus to be skin on to me. I long for a cool drink of water to sit with Him in the quiet of the day but really there has not been much quiet lately.
I know that this season I am in, is one of great needs pressing hard into a mama of four and a wife of one and a friend to many. I know that God has me in a place where I am constantly being poured out. But the Real honest truth, is there are not many drops left to be poured out.
So I am looking forward. I am going to sit and be Real and let the Real Jesus bring life back into my soul. I am going to sing. I am going to drink it all in. I am going to listen as a faith filled woman of God pours her soul out onto thousands and thousands of women. I am going knowing that this Real Jesus has a Real Word for me. I am going with the intent to sit. And bask in His glory.
Oh Lord. Thank you for your grace. That you draw me in. You know my path. I pray for an outpouring on your daughters. Meet us Lord. Meet me Lord. I am in Real need of You.
