Loud ‘n’ Clear (Five Minute Friday)

It’s FRIDAY! Which can only mean one thing…

Being productive is optional. (Just kidding. You best get back to work before your boss catches you.)

But seriously– in my little blogging world, Friday equals FIVE MINUTE FRIDAY. Get pumped.
Five Minute Friday

Each week, I link up with Lisa-Jo Baker. She gives us a prompt. Then we write for five minutes and push publish.

It’s like wind sprints for the finger tips. (That sounds like a great slogan! Anybody?)

Let’s get this party started, shall we?

Today’s prompt: VOICE

Annnddd GO!!


I’ve ALWAYS been a talker. Don’t believe me? Ask my Mama. From the moment I was able to form words, I have been chitty-chatting to anyone who will listen, telling them about our dog that had puppies or the tomatoes in the garden or how swim lessons were going.

Over the years, things have changed… a little.

Now, don’t get all excited thinking God has magically morphed me into the strong, silent type. (HA!) But as I reflect on how my voice has changed through the years (and not just because of puberty!) it really moves my heart.

My voice used to always be loud and somewhat obnoxious… Now? I have learned the power of compassionate silence.

My voice used to be focused on bringing laughter… Now? I am not ashamed when it cracks in the middle of a prayer.

My voice used to be somewhat robotic, desiring every word I said in a public speech or message to be absolutely perfect. Now? I no longer desire perfection– I simply desire to be faithful.

My voice used to be all about me… Now? I find myself talking more and more about God every day.

I am so thankful that while our voices might change throughout the years, that we can see it changing for Him. Even in the most quiet of God-moments… Our voices can praise Him, loud ‘n’ clear!



What is YOUR God voice like today? I would love to hear about your experience. Don’t be shy– leave a comment below!

Oh. And have a fantabulous weekend. Thanks for stopping by…Your support of this ministry sure blesses our mission 🙂

Asking Him to be my Voice,

“The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice of the LORD is majestic.” ~Psalm 29:4
