31 Days of 5 Minute Free Writes 2016 - 08: "Muddle"

Muddle - (verb) to mix up in a confused or bungling manner; jumble.


For one who is fairly intelligent, I find the muddling of my thoughts exhausting, inexcusable, and all too frequent.  It is not the facts that generally get muddled, but the heart.  I am often confused about my purpose and direction.  I get bogged down in reconciling what God says and what humans seem to imply is God's will (marriage being the main culprit).  Yes, God is to be pleased above all, but He did make us creatures of community and accountability.  I'll not betray my godly principles for the pleasure of humans, but I would like to have real friendships that last longer than a commercial break during the Alabama game.

How does one un-muddle? (Yeah, I know that's not a word, but work with me)

God is not the author of confusion (I Corinthians 14:33), so what am I missing here?

Hey, I said I would do my best to be positive, but I didn't pick the word prompt, so don't blame me for being honest. ;)



  1. Friends that last as long as a commercial break...your metaphors are awesome, girl! And yes, I used to long for that many days too. In it with you.
