Well, it is time for 5 Minute Friday hosted by The Gypsy Mama, herself, Lisa -Jo Baker. Jumping back in for the first time in 2014- I missed the first gathering of this year because each First Friday of the month Recovering Church Lady and I host our own small gathering of writing friends called Random Journal Day! Feeling a little rusty, but here we go…the prompt is SEE:
I’m barely awake, rubbing sleep from my eyes. I’ve been wondering lately what it is I need to see that I’m not seeing. What is it, Lord, that I’m missing. What do I need to learn that I’m not getting?
But, I do believe I am starting to see.
Because, everyone has blind-spots.
I don’t deny that I have mine.
Spiritual scars, scratches, and pits remain on the surface, yet still, I cling to my own understanding.
How long will it take to shed this skin?
How long before I really see?
I keep rolling around in circles…
Yet, I have access to the One who made blind men see.
I long for it to be me.
Feel free to rub the sleep out of your own eyes, and join in-
see you there!
