Five Minute Friday - Awake

Today, I join a whole community of wonderful writers at Lisa Jo's place as we spend 5 minutes of unedited writing straight from the heart to the pen. Please visit The Gypsy Mama to join in the fun.

This week's prompt is:


Awake  Awake! He tells me...rise from you stupor! Clothe yourself in strength! (Isaiah 52:1)

This is a new year...a new beginning...a new chance to be a light that shines in the darkness!

Put on your armour, polish up your weaponry

Expand your boundaries...reach out...

Be my eyes and my ears, my hands and my feet...

Show love and compassion to all that you meet

Do not be afraid...for I am with you always

There is no passivity in building a kingdom

You must be bold, you must be brave, you must be strong

I am your strength and your shield...I am your consoler

Surrender your fears to me and  AWAKE...make a joyful noise...

Awaken all friends and neighbours to my love

Awaken all strangers to my love

Share the peace, the joy, the love

My people are hungry and they thirst.. who shall feed them?

I am AWAKE Lord... here I am... I come to do your will!


My friends, next week, this here little blog will celebrate its first anniversary. I humbly request your prayers as I seek God's guidance on where He wants to take me and 'This Little Light of Mine'  As you can see above, I sense Him asking me to expand my boundaries...just how I'm not sure.  Its a little bit daunting and the balancing act is a test in itself, but as always, I must be obedient. I appreciate your prayers. Thank you!

Stopping by for the first time! Love your thoughts- especially the line "there is no passivity in building a kingdom". Privileged to be part of this kingdom building by your side!!!

Thanx for your great idea to feature the song "A cry from the heart" on your Blog. Please do so and also send it to family and friends. If everyone features it once on their Blogs it would soon get noticed.

God bless you.

Hi Lisa Maria, found your blog while hopping along Five Minute Friday. I can relate to so much you have written. I pray that you're able to hear the voice of God with clarity has you seek his direction for your blog.

Lisa Maria, you always have an encouraging word for me...and I thank you! I'm reading and loving a devotional book this year. It's called Jesus Calling by Sarah Young. I think you'd enjoy it too! Blessings!
