This earlier reveal causes the #fmfparty to start earlier and oh my stars it is frantic reading and just a little cray cray to try to keep up... but how I love Thursday nights! This community is amazing... and we gather to lift each other up... to encourage, to pray, - and Oh. My. Stars. - to literally laugh out loud together! So - here it is... your Five Minute Friday post - that is pretty much written and posted on Thursday nights now! Enjoy!
Oh but - first - the fine print: if you don't know what FMF is! Five Minute Fridays are hosted by Lisa Jo Baker. It is open to anyone, so to learn more about it - and to jump in yourself (the more the merrier!) or just to find a linky to see what everyone is writing about today - click HERE! The idea is to simply write... for Five Minutes flat... no editing, no deep thinking - or at least REthinking, no spell check - just write! Let it flow! We all write using a prompt that Lisa posts at 10pm Thursday night (EST.) I'm loving the community of amazing bloggers and the creativity that flows from these magical Five Minutes!
So - here goes: Five Minute Friday - SHE...
She underestimates herself... giving in to the whispers of not enough, of it's too late, of who gets do overs really anyway?
She entertains thoughts of I can't do it, and I wish I were different.
She oh so often forgets her beauty... more importantly, she forgets her value.
She is brave when it's needed... but this is not her first inclination. Oh no... she steps back, blends in, observes from the back.
She has plenty to say - and words come fast... thankfully, not so furious... but she second guesses herself and wonders if anyone hears... if anyone cares... if anyone really gains anything from the sound of her voice!
She is grace and laughter and joy... she is truth and real and boldly shy in how she is vulnerable...
She is determined in that quiet strength kind of way - but only when she has made up her mind and oh boy - watch out when her and her God come into agreement!
She is unstoppable and has found a call that she can crawl into...
She is embracing change... leaning in... letting go...
She is starting new... excited and nervous and more than a little unsure... but trusting all the more!
She is stepping out... taking risks... growing faith!
She is the best thing I have ever done... and she is learning to let God have His way with her...
'She' is my girlie... and 'She' is me...
Isn't 'She' a little bit of all of us? I pray that you will dive in deep and in this season - whatever season it is you find yourself in - you will learn to tune out the whispers and the lies... and tune in to the truth of who you are; of who She is!
She is (We are) Speaking Life. Being Love. Shining On.
Join us, won't you?
