Five Minute Friday - Real

8:12 AM

Real thoughts. 
Real dreams.  
Real frustrations. 
Real betrayed.  
Real disappointments.  
Real feelings.......................


Joseph's life continues to play out in my mind as I think about how I would feel if I had this amazing dream and landed in prison, for over twenty years. 



While events in our lives are real and bring with them all kinds of legit feelings, thoughts, and fears. I have to remember above all He is Real.  He is real peace, strength, and the real author of my life.  I nor my circumstances outweigh or control His ability to make a way when there seems to be no way.  



He is real grace.  He is genuine and above my heart's disappointments.  He has a real plan for my life and his voice is real even in the darkest times, leading me, guiding me, whispering to me, "This is the way walk in it."



When His REALNESS takes the place of what is real in our lives we will be able to reel others into His light.

    1. Tara, yes He does and I am desperately clinging to the truth that His ways are higher than ours and my job is to trust. Easier said than done, right?
