Five Minute Friday Don’t be afraid to try

I have been encouraged this week by a simple exercise. My pastor last Sunday asked our church to share our stories of what Jesus did for them in a 100 words. Through this, I learned a couple of things. First, writing the answer to this question, and keeping it one hundred words was hard. Secondly, this exercise reminded of my “why”- the reason that I do what I do everyday. I sometimes feel like I am getting stuck in a rut. It is easy to do with routines. Most weekdays, look very similar to the day before, and it easy to fall into a pattern of doing what you did yesterday. I am not even saying that having that routine is bad thing, because routines can be helpful. I do want to be willing to shake things up a little bit when needed. I never want to be afraid to try new things. I want to feel free to experiment, make messes, make new discoveries, really fully live. I don’t want to live my life being afraid to try.

      I had Toby Mac’s song “Move” in mind for this post, but when I read it after I finished my five minutes I thought the Point of Grace song was more appropriate for the theme. I love that, when my writing takes on a path different than I originally planned. I hope you have a lovely weekend!

    Love the music! Point Of Grace is terrific.

    As one who is now married to routines by terminal illness, I am finding that they can open up unexpected doors into adventure, if I just try to be intentional about everything I do, even if I have done it a hundred times.

    That’s not hard; I may not have a tomorrow to do it again, so I’d best pay attention! πŸ™‚
