"Our family will base our success on one thing...our impact for the Kingdom of Christ." -Rick Burgess

Friday, January 11, 2013



It's Friday, and that means I get to visit with a great group over at Lisa-Jo Baker's place. A place where the words flow like fresh water for my soul and encouragement abounds. I look forward to meeting here each week to read the God-given words of the women He's using to change the world.
Wont' you join us?

It's been a while since I've joined in on a FMF. I have to confess...I normally just watch the clock for my five minutes, so I usually fudge just a little. Today I set the timer. Man that five minutes went by fast!

Here you go. My five minutes on.....


The tree is down.

The calender is marking the last day of December.

I’m standing on the edge of 2012 feeling a bit like Peter standing at the edge of the boat.

I feel Jesus calling me into 2013. Asking me to step out.

Step out boldly. Leap. Dive.

But like Peter, I see the water. The deep, dark, place of uncertainty.

I see Jesus. I know full well He is there waiting to catch me. He is there, arms outstretched, ready to lead me.

He’s calling me. Ready for me to lay hold of all that He has waiting for me in this new year.

A new year, a new day.

Everyday is a clean slate on which I can choose to write “Yes, Jesus, Yes!”


Times Up!



  1. Hi Tracey, visiting from FMF. When we know HE has our back, it's amazing what we can do. Lovely post. Rosanne
