At times, rejection makes us . . .

Work

A Five Minute Friday Challenge

The prompt this week is: Work, GO! 

Work is a "4 letter word". Ha ha, that popped into my head this morning, as I was pondering where this post would go. Sometimes work as in a job, or a workout for exercise is not so fun...something we have to do. It has a negative connotation.

The prompt this week is "Neighbor", GO!

I saw the prompt and it was fairly obvious what the "slant" of my post should be. Be a good neighbor, especially in the wake of the devastation from Hurricane Harvey. It left a path of destruction from TX, through TN (where I live) and even out to the east coast. I've watched much of it on . . .

Moving Through the Desperate In-Between

Silvrback blog image 

In Chapter 14 of "Uninvited", Lysa TerKuerst uses Psalm 91 as a prayer to work through the in-between times from rejection to healing. Reading and meditating on Scripture is healing and strength-giving.

I have to admit, sometimes the in-between seems like a desert...a no man's land of sorts. You want to move forward, but . . .
