Jump {ing Tandem} – {Five Minute Friday Linkup}

This past year I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about and pursuing my dreams.  I’ve gone back to college to obtain a degree on which my passion and calling for a good part of my life has been built.  I’ve taken a leap of faith in my writing, as I’ve written beyond the walls of my leather journal, spilling them onto the worldwide blogosphere.  I’ve pursued community outside of my comfort zone.

I’ve always been one for adventure, though I am more cautious as the years tick by.


As I prepare for a journey, my mind and the box-screen I stare at is filled with such horrific images of tragedy and fright and relentless pursuit of capturing evil.  It suddenly almost seems frivolous to be readying myself for a weekend of pursuing dreams, while young and old succumb to pain and loss in Boston.

But then I remember this is exactly what the Darkness wants me to feel.  This desperation, this helplessness, this unworthiness – it’s GARBAGE, and has nothing to do with Truth & Light.

I am truly ready to JUMP.

So I will join my voices with the millions and mourners and intercessors and continue to pray for Boston.  I will pray for protection and grace and provision.

Despite fear and nerves and wonder of the future, there’s still a fire in my bones to continue my dogged pursuit of my dreams, as I roadtrip with tunes blazing to experience a community of fellow dreamers.  I’m praying that questions will be answered, friendships will be fostered, and tools will be acquired to continue moving my dreams to fruition.

  1. Good Morning Sarah!
    I am so proud of you for stepping outside of your comfort zone and pursuing your dream! I totally relate that as I get older I am more afraid, but not letting that stop you is the way to go. Listening to God and knowing he has a plan for you is amazing!
    The craziness of this week has struck so many cords…this is when we really need to reach out and spread our love to others. Praying for Boston and all affected!

    1. Thank you so much for the encouragement! I love to write, but realllly don’t think I’m very good at it yet. (Sometimes, that’s why there’s a playlist instead of a lot of words…I’ve always felt I know music more than words.) But I’m working on it…so thank again for reading!

    1. Mary, JT was TRULY AMAZING! I am trying to write my feelings out about it now, and having trouble doing so because it was such a filling, special, much needed weekend for me at this moment in my life. I wish you were there TOO! (Hoping to see you at this year’s Allume?) 🙂 Hope all is well my friend!

speak your mind, share your heart
