five minute friday: {again}

January 25, 2013Karen Courcy

Welcome to five minute Friday to where us bloggers are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing.

No editing or backtracking. No need to be perfect. Just words freely flowing from my heart to yours.

Today’s Five minute Friday word is {again}


Time and time again life proves to me that “I will overcome” any obstacles that stand in my way. Time and Time again God shows me the way through any struggle I am faced with, and gives me connection, joy, grace and love.

This has been a tough week for me. I have faced something that has been a struggle for me for a while now, and this time around, it’s different. It’s different because I trust the connection, I trust the faith, I trust God, and I trust the grace all around me.

This has been a tough week, because I stood up for myself against something. I took a stand and said YES to me and NO to something hurting me, and sometimes when you make that stand, it hurts – but time and time again life shows that there is something better on the other side of that struggle.

My therapist always reminds me “if God is for us, who can be against us?” … I love that quote, and I love when my therapist reminds me of that, because sometimes I tend to forget. Sometimes I lose sight of my strength when going through a struggle.

Time and time again has proven that “I will overcome”. Time an time again has proven that I am connected, loved and supported.

No matter what struggles I go through, no matter what joys I am going through, no matter what I am faced against; I am reminded time and time again, I will overcome, and on other side is my support, god and most of all – myself on the other side of it – once again.

    This is full of hope and solace. Again.

    What first came to my mind for the word “again” was:

    Repetition of good healthy things – day after day, again and again – forms a good foundation in life.
