May I Share? 31 days of free writing [day 5]


Before I get to the prompt let me share with you my cheat. I decided that I would faithfully follow Kate’s 31 Day series. So I read, or began to read her post today (day 5) and got revelation!

So the prompt is: Share… Go…

Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. Romans 12:15

I want to share a concern I have with my 31 day writing challenge: some may preceive it as negative and shy away.

Living life after death is the season I am in. I’m learning how to live again after tremendous loss. And I’m learning so much about and deepening my relationship with God. I’m learning so much about myself. And…

I’m learning to be quiet; hoping to learn to continually be in God’s presence. Stop.

Romans 12:15 was opened up for me tonight as I read Kate’s post.

Rejoice with those who rejoice.

Mourn with those who mourn.

The scripture is for the one who mourns as much as it is for those rejoicing!

I’m in a place where while I’m isolating I am also socializing, on purpose.

This was the year of weddings. Four Weddings. Three of which was a family of siblings! I attended these joyful events.

I rejoiced with them. I shared in their joy.

I experienced joy in my sorrow! *mind blown*

Honestly, I didn’t believe joy would be a part of my life again.

But God…JOY. Amazing!

There’s a time for everything…a time to weep and a time to [laugh] rejoice. Ecclesiastes 3:1,4

Thanks to God for the joy. Thanks to Kate for the revelation. Thank you for stopping by.
