Linking Up Today With Lisa-Jo

5 Minute Friday


Two years ago.

I heard this song by Rebecca St James. "I Will Praise You."

It talks about the "waters rising" and it talks  about matter what the cost "I. will. still. praise. Him...."

Yes, I heard it for the first time two years ago. It popped up on my computer screen at 5:00 am. On April 12th 2011.

In fact she had just released the song.

I didn't even follow Rebecca St James. 

I had just lost my mom.

She was buried on April 5th. 

I lost more than my mom two years ago.

The spokes came off the proverbial wheel of family relationships. 

But the Lord comforted me with this song like a prophetic word about the days to come.

And today. I wasn't looking for it. My iPod was on a different play list. I was running on my elliptical.

Then it played. 

He sent me some encouragement right here, where I am today.

I'm still here claiming peace in the storm.
God is still here cheering me on.

The song. 

Hear it here?


I’m joining Lisa-Jo, over at her site today, to take five minutes and just write without worrying if it’s amazing. The challenge is to write for 5 minutes flat {which is not very long...} with the prompt she gives. And today, her prompt:
