For five minutes flat.
Here’s how the game works: you simply stop, drop and write. Set your words free. Don’t edit them, don’t fret over them, don’t try to make them perfect.
That’s how Five Minute Friday was born. Want to play? It’s fun. And it’s never too late to link up. Also? My friend Sara whipped up a hunky dory button for the occasion! You can grab the code over there in the right side bar. Then:
It’s liberating; give it a a try and see. And there’s this great reminder for one of you from DaySpring of how- with faith – we don’t wait in vain.
Waiting has everything to do with the Christ-following life and by that same One in me I am learning to wait with a heart that pleases Him. I have never, ever been patient but know that in HIs Spirit I am learning a discipline most contrary to me.
And I love how in Spanish the word for waiting and hoping is the same. It truly is what waiting is for the One who knows Him. Waiting is Hoping and if I embraced nothing else about waiting or learned nothing else then it would be worth it.
Waiting right now is very active. We are working hard to raise support and prepare to move overseas. I can be in this time in anxiety or in hoping. We don’t see how He will provide as we push into the unknown. We know He is faithful and our waiting has everything to do with exercising our faith muscle. If we never have to believe HIm for anything, how are we going to grow our faith? I love this and get so excited at the thought of what it means to grow my faith in the best way…waiting and hoping. To have this be the undercurrent of this life and to ‘count it all joy’ as I walk this way. I have so far to go, but the goal is clear and sure and underlined through all of His Word. I don’t need to ‘do’ anything except learn how to wait in faith and trust and LIVE while the waiting is happening.
