Five Minute Friday

2013 starts up five minute fridays again
a time to write for five minutes
unabandoned
uninhibited
that’s my prefix this year…”un”
so here goes…
today’s word is {opportunity}

GO

God has given me a life filled with opportunity.
He has given me so much of what I have longed for.
Yet I refuse to be in it.
I keep trying to move out of it.
Never believing for one moment that it’s a good thing and always waiting for the sky to fall on it.

Living in the opportunity that God gives is scary.
It’s a choice where I can walk in fear (and get no where)
or walk in faith (and go to amazing places)

The problem is trust.
If I want to walk head first and live in this opportunity that He has given me…that He has laid in my lap
I have to keep my focus on Him.
I have to remember that He has given me a Spirit of strength and power…not fear.
I can continue to move out of this fear, out of the anxiety, out of all those things that keep my hindered
and walk like Peter into the storm, onto the waves and not sink.

And even when I do sink, remember Who holds me up.
What an opportunity.

STOP

  1. Awesome post. I have been dealing with issues of “trust” myself. Trusting God to catch me when I fall. Even though He has never failed. Loved your paragraph:
    “Living in the opportunity that God gives is scary.

    or walk in faith (and go to amazing places)”
    How very true. Thanks for being real.
