Not Following the Crowd - FMF

 My Five Minute Friday Post this week, setting the timer for 5 minutes and writing on the word follow... 


When I saw the word for today, I breathed out in a sense of peace. It certainly seemed to be right up my street, and exactly where I have been this past week, at least with something new I have been thinking, feeling and dreaming of doing.

In this world of ours, we often think we have to do something in the same way as someone else, or worse still, we think we shouldn't do something because someone else is "already" doing it.  I know I've got caught out in that way of thinking before. The enemy of my soul has lied to me countless times, making me think I shouldn't do the very thing God has placed in my heart, because what could I offer. What could I say that would be different. I've recognised this trick and learnt that many other people I know, struggle with the same thing.

But this lie is not truth!

Each of us are unique. And the things we dream of doing are God - breathed, beautiful and deep. Over the past month I have been sensing a hobby brewing.. a desire, to create a sports podcast for women. I got caught a little in over - thinking it, but no ways! I feel immense freedom and joy in dreaming about what I'd want to be talking about. So I am really excited about setting on this new journey of sport podcasting, because I'm following the leading of God, and there's nothing better!


Sharing over with the community at Five Minute Friday

  3. I thought I might make sonnets cool
    right here in the present day,
    but in this goal I played the fool,
    and things did not work out that way.
    I wanted my name up in lights,
    a rockstar of the literati,
    thinking that among my rights
    was purchase of a Maserati,
    and perhaps a beachfront home
    (more a mansion...nay, a castle!),
    and the world through which to roam
    with no "Can I afford it?" hassle.
    No, these rhymes earned not a cent,
    but it's been fun, and I'm content.
