it's just all confusing.

I know you know what I mean.
When you think you are following a path....
you are affirmed in a certain way,
you think all are on board,
and the messages get mixed....
and it all gets confusing.

Don't mean to be cryptic, because this is the kind of situation that could happen anywhere. Anytime, with anyone.

My prayer these days is to not over-react.
My prayer these days is to not feel threatened.
My prayer these days is to be strong and confident, and, in the words of my dear friend, which I am not stealing, but just embracing in the moment, is to be fierce and fabulous for Jesus.
Or at least,
believe that Jesus thinks I am fierce and fabulous...
because honestly,
sometimes I wonder.

I am a tree, with deep roots.
My roots feel a little shaken loose right now.  I am not uprooted, I am still a living tree with deep roots.
Maybe just a surprised tree--
Like, maybe how trees feel when a limb is broken off,
or a huge storm whips it around....

good, great God....
please hear my prayer,
and hold me close.


  1. Holding you in prayer....and sending much love your way.

  2. My prayer goes out to you too. I like the fierce and fabulous for Jesus--what courage it takes just to be authentic in stressful situations; though I don't know yours, I hear you.

  3. well, starting with a hug.
    I am recalling a conversation with my #2 son, on an occasion when I had just found out my cohort were NOT "all on board," -- and he looked at me and said, "Isn't that...DEMORALIZING, Mom, when that happens?" He was my great resource for a "word in season," in those days. And now I have the RGBP.
    And -- definitely -- FFFJ. All the time.

  4. I borrowed those words, too, so don't even worry about it. Love you.

  5. sweet friends, thank you.
    think there needs to be some revgal swag that says, simply, fffj.

    love you all...
