It’s called “Five Minute Friday.” Over at Lisa-Jo Baker’s blog, she gives a one word prompt. Then we writers are to set our timers for five minutes and write with gusto! No spelling or grammar worries, just pure, raw, lovely thoughts put onto a computer screen. If you like that kind of challenge, then go get your timer and link up!
What is TRUE about my life? What makes it what it is? There are all the things that everyone knows: I homeschool, I teach the Bible, I stay at home, I struggle with my weight, I enjoy encouraging people…
But then there are the things about me that are TRUE that you probably don’t know. And those are the things that are hard to share. For example, my insecurity that if I’m really real with people, then I know no one will ever want to be my friend again. I know the horrible things that go on in my heart and brain. Struggles that I fight every day.
There are TRUE things about my past that aren’t pretty. But they have helped to turn me into who I am.
Truth is not always pretty. But it is something we all must face.
The truth is, despite our desire to stay as young as we can, we will turn old.
The truth is, everyone must die one day.
The truth is, there is hope for the future.
The truth is, Someone a lot bigger than your problems loves you.
The truth is, you do not need to define your future by the mistakes of your past.
The truth is, there is an enemy who doesn’t want you to hear the truth.
So when you hear what is TRUE…CLING to it! Even if it is hard. Because most of the time, it’s the hard truths that give us the solid Truth we need for tomorrow.
Thanks for joining me today! Have a fantastic weekend!
