Today, I am participating in Five Minute Friday. It is a writing exercise given though Lisa-Jo Baker. I have a word prompt and five minutes to write free of editing. The prompt is fall.
Most people are afraid of falling. I guess when we think about falling, we tend to consider what we might fall out of rather than what we could fall into. Falling into something can be hopeful. Falling out is indicative of the end. Or is it?
If we live in fear of taking steps towards our dreams and goals, then we will never know what direction we might fall. And I’ve come to find out that no matter which way you go, there is blessing.
There is as much blessing in the rain as there is in the sun. It’s just different and requires more soul searching. It is difficult and not the way any of us would choose to fall if we actually were able to control life, but it doesn’t mean we can’t learn from those hard days. It doesn’t mean God has given up on us. It usually means that His plans for us are just beginning.
Whatever you are called to do in your life, do it. Don’t focus on the possibility that you might fall out of something, focus on what you might fall into. Live out your purpose giving Christ all the glory and let Him worry about the rest. Don’t be afraid to chase your dreams. Let God use you right where you are. Chances are that you will fall into something you never expected.
Be blessed and fall into something wonderful!
