Today I’m joining Lisa-Jo Baker at Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for 5 minutes without editing. Here we go!
The road I’ve travelled has brought me to Southern California– a prime destination for most, but as for me and my family it is our “In Between.” Like the Israelites stuck in the Wilderness/Desert between Egypt and the Promised Land, our wilderness is SoCal (not bad, huh?).
Encouraged to not waste my time in the here in the “in between,” I have chosen to use the time to get things worked out. Whereas I was on a spiritual plateau before arriving in SoCal, I’m now “working out my salvation with fear and trembling” (Phil. 2:12, sanctification). I am fanning into flame (defining and using) the gifts God has given me (2 Tim. 1:6), and all the while “being confident in this, that he who began a good work in [Me] will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” (Phil 1:6)
