Define // Five Minute Friday
Thrilled to be writing among the beautiful Five Minute Friday community. This is where we write for just five minutes, on a word prompt. We don’t worry about perfection or making it just right, but rather allow the words to flow freely without over thinking. If you’ve never written for the Five Minute Friday, come join us. You will be glad you did!
What defines you? I’ve come across this question more than once in my life time and it always leaves me stumped.
I don’t believe that there is any one thing that defines who I am, other than Christ in me, the hope of glory. But there was a time when who I felt I was was wrapped up in what I felt I had to do. I know how to keep myself busy from morning to night, constant movement which keeps my mind active, but blocks my heart from hearing God and receiving His blessing.
Life has been defined by busyness lately. I take pride in how well I can accomplish the next task, and whether or not those around me are happy and content, forgetting to care for myself in the process. In the pursuit of a defined purpose, I’ve lost sight of the many blessings God has given to me, those breathtaking moments that I must reach for, lay hold of and pull into my own reality. I want my life to be defined by moments that take my breath away, not by those that leave me gasping for air.I want my life to be defined by moments that take my breath away. #fmfparty Click To Tweet
If I were asked to define my life at this moment, I would say it’s one big, beautiful mess. I am thankful that I’m not defined by the mess, but rather by the beauty that is uncovered as I lay hold of His promises for me.I am His and He is mine, and that is enough for me. #fmfparty Click To Tweet
