I'm linking up with Lisa Jo at The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday with the writing prompt
I'm a writer. I have only on-line publications at this point, yet from the very marrow of my bone I know that this is what I was created to do. I know the uneasiness of an idea floating around until it hits the screen. I know the synergy of writing until the thought is fully crafted. And I know the satisfaction of reading the outcome of little pieces that came together in an extraordinary way, as though somebody else's fingers took over and I'm just reading the finished product. I know what it feels like to breathe deep with satisfaction, with chills, with a smile, with laughter. Or to lose a breath with tears.
I don't know what the big picture holds and frankly, to go here and admit that this is who I am and what I desperately want is scary. Because what if I'm not good enough, clever enough, poignant enough, dynamic enough? Yet, in spite of these doubts, this is who I am and I choose to continue to take the small steps in faithfulness to this vocation. And fear won't overcome me. It won't tell me I'm not doing enough because, in this season of life, I choose to do what I can. It won't tell me I'm not good enough because what I have boiling within only I can give.
I choose to trust and believe in the picture that I cannot see, parts that I may never see, don't have to see, in order to forge forward into the wondrous unknown.
*I may have totally made up my own definition for synergy in this five minute bust! But just so you understand, I'm using it in terms of my knowledge, experience, and creativity working together, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to create the whole. Does that work?
