Five Minute Friday: If I knew I could, I would…

{Right from the woman herself, LISA-JO!}

On Fridays around these parts we have a little tradition. We throw caution (editing, revising, and worrying) to the winds and just write. Without wondering if it’s just right or not.

For five minutes flat. You’re welcome to play along. The rules are easy.

  1. Write your heart out for five minutes and show us what you’ve got.
  2. Tell your readers you’re linking up here and invite them to play along.
  3. And most importantly, go visit, read, and encourage the fellow five-minuter who linked up right before you.{Pretty please turn off word verification for the day to make this easier!}

Easy peasy.

Oh and there’s always a little fun something-something in it for one five minute artist.

This week there’s a totally cute All Things Are Possible Water Bottle by DaySpring up for grabs.

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes for the prompt:



If I Knew I Could, I Would…

UHS goodbye and getaway 035


I would, if I could, pour out this heart into every place/woman that needed to hear of His Great Love.  I would stand like a warrior over lies to say, ‘no! HE IS GREATER! TRUST HIM!’ and to do battle for them against that evil Enemy.

I would do it with words, of course, and I would most want to look into every pair of eyes that I could and say, ‘HE IS LIFE! DON’T SETTLE FOR ANYTHING LESS!’  I would call my sisters to the GREAT ADVENTURE and to know that this IS TRULY THE ONLY LIFE WORTH LIVING!!!!

I would love to write digging deep into Scripture and to weave the reality of His and our desires and what it can look like when they align and all that cannot be described in words that that makes our hearts do…our very selves too! 

I would join my sisters’ hands worldwide and run to fields (and oceans) in bare feet and raise up choruses high of His Great Love and just bask together in His Glory. 

I would hug the tired-ness the weariness and be a physical representation of the Spirit that is real—that wants to pick up and carry on eagles’ wings.

I would climb any platform allowed and declare boldly who and Whose we are women! I would plead from the deep to not spend this ONE LIFE on anything less than His Glory.
