Five Minute Friday - doubt

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on doubt.

My parenting,
my choices
my decisions for you.

My work
how I spend my time
my decisions for me.

My future
your future
future decisions for us.

There is a shadow that is always surrounding me.
A shadow that hangs over my light and makes things a little darker
and it is doubt.

That's all doubt does
is make you worry
it makes you hide from decisions
it makes you not feel the warmth of light because its shadow is so strong
it takes away your ability to act
and your ability to trust.
It covers you in darkness
it destroys all things light.
It makes you worry
about your past and your future and it erases the now.

I have to trust those I have put in my life
I have to trust those I have created
I have to trust me
and realize that we won't always get it right
but we will always try.
We will always always try until it all feels right again.

    Hi Sabrina. I agree with the way doubt can make us feel. It's an uncomfortable place to be in if we linger too long there. But doubt can also lead us to investigate, ponder deeply, look more intently and eventually lead us to seeing God and His hand at work in our lives. Yes, it does come down to faith and trust, believing we've made the right choices. May God guide you into His peace and rest as you place all things into His hands. Visiting from #FMF Have a blessed weekend! 🙂
