True Dat (Five Minute Friday)

Five Minute Friday
Hi there, friends! It’s time for Five Minute Friday…

(Back story: Each week I link up with Lisa-Jo Baker. She gives us a prompt and we write for, yep, you guessed it… Five minutes.)

So here goes nothing.

Today’s prompt: TRUE

AND GO! 

***

I swallowed the lump that was in my throat as I slowly looked around. I blinked. Then I realized what I knew to be true all along.

I. Was. Different.

Now, back in the day, the truth about me being different was kind of hard to swallow. Sometimes I yearned to be the fit and fashionable girl giggling by her locker instead of the non-boyfriend-having-super-academic-way-involved-uber-creative-girl I actually was designed to be.

However, as the years passed, it didn’t take me long to realize the truth about myself… and I kind of liked it.

True dat.

I was the girl who wore duct tape to senior prom in an attempt to win a scholarship for college.

I was the girl who, as a first generation college student, went straight to a 4-year university right out of the gates.

I was the girl who, for one spring break, went to Missouri Auction School to become a certified auctioneer.

And now, I am the woman who is married to a solider, has a degree in animal science and masters in Christian leadership and works in ministry. For Jesus dollars.

Yep. True dat.

Bottom line, I am thankful to know and embrace my true self– and encourage you to do the same.

Specifically by worshipping the hippest, most loving, truest King there ever was…

Jesus Christ.

True dat.

STOP!
****

I straight up rejoice in these, truths, my dear followers. Think to yourself for a moment: What personal truths are you thankful for in your own life? As always, don’t be shy– leave a comment below.

True blessings to you today,
SGK

“Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” ~John 17:3 NIV
