Today’s Prompt: In Between

Today, I am in between breaths. I am finding it hard to breathe again. Every single time I think I know what I want to do with my life, things suck me back and I feel stuck again.


I am in between decisions I need to make. How do I make those and live a life full of glory to the Lord? I know what I need to do, but for me, I am stuck in the in between.

Where I am there is such uncertainity. Will I make the right decisions? Who will get hurt in the process? Will we make it financially? So many questions that I struggle with in the in between.

I am also at the point that I just want to live. My life is so full of everything right now, that I find myself falling in between the cracks. I feel like if I step too far one way I will teeter off the edge. If I go to far the other way, I will drown in life stuff.

Staying right in the middle — in between the arms of the Lord is the only place that I feel safe. It is this place that calls me and it is where I want to be. Getting there is scary. Going through the in between places is SO hard, but it has to be done.

What about you? What is your in between?

    I agree with you – the in between phases are the hardest, but moving through them can also the most rewarding time of our lives. We see this once we look back on the in between times that we’re past, I believe.

    Enjoyed reading your reflection of “in between”. Big hugs that everything will work out according to His plans.

      Yes — once you are on the other side then you can see the beauty of why you had to go through.

    Totally feeling this post today! I used to be so clear in what I wanted and where I wanted to be. I had ambitions, I had goals, I volunteered and served with purpose. But for a while now, the only clarity I’ve had is doing what is needed of me at home. It’s been all consuming, and while I know my purpose here is divine, I also feel like maybe I’ve become too hyper-focused and have lost a bigger vision for myself and for serving others. Maybe with my youngest starting school soon, there will be more room for me to unfold and get out of my own “in between.”

      UGH. I know, right? I am in that same boat right now. Except I homeschool so I don’t have a lot of extra wiggle room
