The Progress in the Pauses
Do we keep creeping forward with our headlights on low
as the fog closes in all around us~
or might this be the moment that God has in mind
to awaken, amaze and astound us?
Do we forge ahead through stormy winds
while striving for goals that we seek,
or might this be the moment to shelter inside
while waiting for God to speak?
Do we grieve when our progress is hampered
and we fall short of our dreams to achieve,
or let this be the moment for us to pause,
and give God some space to breathe?

We are given a one-word prompt and five minutes to write. I do need to confess that this one was written in five minutes- but I thought about it for over an hour before doing so.)
