Grasp {Five Minute Friday}

Grasp {to take or seize eagerly, to lay hold of with the mind : comprehend}

What a wonder that God would give Lisa-Jo that word for this week's Five Minute Friday.

Not really.

My reader feed has been loaded with various posts on writing and dreaming all week.  Things I grasp to understand these days.

After the blessing of last weekend's Quitter Conference, I grasp to understand what I'm supposed to do, and how.  Being a type-A, over-achiever, if I don't understand it and can't make it work, I want to bail.  Give up. Walk away.

But not this time.
I have to figure this one out.
I have to understand what God is trying to me.

I still get stuck on little things like comments, re-tweets, and responses.  But does all that really matter, or is this just my "practice space"

That place where I'm able to find myself and get comfortable with who I my writing, in the blogosphere, in my own skin really.

I've been here a long time.

I've re-invented this little blog of mine several times, never really able to find its true self, its true space.

But maybe it's me.

Maybe its me who needs to move and change... grasp...what God is doing...

Linked with Lisa Jo and Five Minute Friday

I love this Lori. I can relate to so much... not the quilting part, though. The only sewing I do these days is maybe a Halloween costume or two.
" grasp...what God is doing..."

That is spot on. I have this notion if I could see what the heck is going on, then I would have peace. I'll think on this post for a while. Have a great Friday.

I've been curious about the Quitter Conferences. I pray you are able to discern what direction God is taking you. So glad you linked up with Five Minute Friday!

I love your "practice space" and I love that you acknowledge that God is in charge, working in you!
