When faced with life's challenges,
it is Important to Remember
that although Daniel was saved from the lions,
he was not saved from the Lion's Den.

Five Minute Friday - Lonely

Five Minute Friday: Lonely

Friday, time to crack open the chocolate ice cream and unscripted version of beautiful you!

Got five minutes? Let’s write. Let’s finger paint with words.  (I really love that description, there is something so cool about finger painting with words!)
Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not. Here’s how to play along:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back over at Lisa Jo's and invite others to join in.
3. Go and comment on the post of the person who linked up before you. This is the one rule of this community.
It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week.

OK, are you ready? Let’s see your best five minutes for the prompt:



Some days, my heart aches.  My soul cries.  Some days, l feel lonely and afraid.  Some days I am lost in my sorrows and I forget to breathe.  I feel so overwhelmed by my own life and others needs.  Those days, I focus on the fact that I am never good enough.  The world around me becomes a haze of black and white.  I either fail or I pass.  There are not gradients to give a measure of success.  The depression sinks into my brain, and I forget those things that are most important of all.  I forget who I am and who I want to be.
Sometimes, I have to remind myself that I don't live only for this lonely moment.  I live for the future.  I live to overcome my past.  I live for eternity.  I have an amazing family, I have loving and beautiful children.  I have blessings that I forget, until I remember again.  The most important things for me are those that bring me closer to Him.  With Him, I am good enough.  I am a child of God, I am the daughter of a King.  I am loved, I am strengthened, I am His.   And most of all, I am not lonely anymore.  He fills me up.  He stretches my soul, He is the beat of my heart.  I can never be lonely as long as He walks by my side.


Now it is your turn.  What can you write in just five minutes.  Don't forget to link back over at Lisa Jo's with the rest of us.


  1. You sound a lot like me, like you know exactly where comfort resides but you tend to wander off on your own only to realize that you need to hold His hand in order for things to feel right! I am happy I followed you on FMF. Feel free to add me on Facebook if you would like. God Bless!

  2. It's great to know we all have the same feelings. It's better to know we all share the same healing God in Christ~amen. This was a great write and God bless you for making me feel human.

    1. My post for FMF is on my wordpress http://leahjlynn.wordpress.com/2013/08/10/lonely-is-when/

  3. I think so many of us have these feelings sometimes. I'm sorry for those times when you do feel alone. I wish I had more time to spend reading blogs and wish we lived closer! I could use a friend close to me. :)
