It’s time for Five Minute Friday. (I will give you a moment to collect yourself.)
FMF is a great exercise, just to write– for five minutes flat, not stressing about grammar and commas, not overthinking the process or the message.
Just write. Then we link up with Lisa-Jo.
Easy, huh? (Just what we need on a low-key Friday!)
Let’s do this.
Today’s prompt: GRACEFUL
I was that kid. You know the one. That girl who trips over the nearly invisible cracks in the sidewalk. The gal who once fell UP the stairs so badly that she was bruised and barely able to walk for a week.
Oh, and I’m still that girl. (Sidenote: being pregnant has not helped– in the last week and a half, I have dropped and broke an entire bottle of salsa, a jar of tabasco sauce and a jar of mayo <the mayo was in a plastic bottle, thank goodness.)
I am NOT graceful. I’ve tried. It just isn’t happening for me.
But regardless of my inability to walk up the stairs and put away salsa, I do have hope.
I am grace-full.
See, we all have a chance, no matter what our level of coordination, to be grace-full. All it takes is a lot of faith from us and never-ending love from a great God.
His grace is enough… to keep us going day after day, when we fall short (either literally or figuratively), to give us a hope and a future.
Without His daily grace, our lives are empty.
So it doesn’t matter if you are the most coordinated-gymnast-dancer-I-got-smooth-moves-person in the world, or a salsa-dropping-stair-tripping-sinner like me. Regardless, it’s time we check our God-gauge…
Are you running on empty? Or are you grace-full?
As always, I am so thankful that you stopped by. Let me know you were here by leaving a quick comment with your reaction. (Comments are my favorite part of the blogging journey.)
Until Monday– may you be overwhelmed with His grace.
From empty to grace-full,
“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the gospel of God’s grace.” ~Acts 20:24
