It’s been an odd assortment of weeks around here. The word “chaotic” doesn’t quite do them justice.
How-some-evah, I’ve been missing the writing community over at Lisa Jo Baker’s Five Minute Friday Link Up. And somethin’ fierce.
So it’s time to jump back in and write for five unedited minutes on this week’s topic. Click the button below to join in or read what others had to say.
I’m reading many books at once. I like to live dangerously that way. This week, I read this in one of them- and it knocked the wind right outta my sails.
“We don’t want to fall. We like to see great testimonies of God’s grace, but we don’t want to be the testimony.” *
Out into the great unknown, I am allowing myself to fall. Even as I type.
My words prove nothing to anyone and everything to me. I find with each word that I type that I am, indeed, using the passion that’s been brewing inside of me, to affect change.
In myself, definitely.
And, prayerfully, in any one of the friends that are reading.
I want to be the testimony. Right here. In black and white, or grey and teal, or whatever other colors are used to type out these words.
The testimony I share can only be shared in bits and pieces, because there are so many. No single grand event. Only snapshots of a life, that when finally put together into that cohesive scrapbook, tell a story of one redeemed by a grace that never fails.
One bit, one picture, is of this 40 something girl, finally learning to fall freely. Knowing that wherever I land, whenever I land, God’s got this.
*One of the books I am currently reading is “Anything” by Jennie Allen. This book is shaking me up. Have you read it? What were some of your greatest takeaways from this book? What have you actually acted on because of it? I love me a good book talk, so please, do share!
