Worship ~ 1/31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes

I’ve had a bit of writing anxiety lately which has caused me to literally avoid looking at my lap top. (Out of sight. Out of mind. Or so I thought.)  I’ve found though, that writing is a part of who I am and I really miss it, so…. I have decided to join in on the 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes at http://www.fiveminutefriday.com 

Each day in October I’ll write for five minutes on a given prompt.  This is mostly an unedited style of writing  that I’m sure will challenge this “recovering perfectionist”; but hopefully in a good way! Please pray that I won’t quit, I’ll have fun, and that I’ll learn more about myself, writing, and my relationship with God. I’d love for you to follow along with me on this journey! Better yet, join in!

Here I go….Time Starts Now!

“Shout to the Lord, all the earth; break out in praise and sing for joy! (Psalm 98:4 NLT) Pixabay

I have a donkey living next door to me.  We’ve named him Jedediah.  The first time he broke out with his bray made me jump and he continues to startle me each time he lets loose!  With his head lifted high and ears extended, he opens his mouth and literally screams at the top of his lungs; sometimes for several minutes.  It can happen anytime in the day or night and Jedediah doesn’t care who it might disturb.

I think worship should be like that!  At any time, day or night, we should lift our heads, extend our arms, and break out with shouts of praise for all to hear about what God has done for us!  Unfortunately, I often am the opposite of Jedediah and hesitate to worship like this for fear of bothering those around me or more than that, of embarrassing myself. Maybe you’re like that too. I hope to become more like Jedediah in the future and put a little more “hee haw” into my worship and let my praise be a joyful noise for all to hear!

Times Up! Whew! That went by fast!

    What a great little story 🙂 Wonderful comparison!!!! You definitely have a God given talent, of that I have no doubt 🙂 One thing I learned from our first Baptist Pastor, is to focus on God, not those around you, and it makes all the difference 🙂 Keep it up, however long or short your stories are, they are real, they are from the heart and I think its all because you keep God involved. He is nudging you to not give up, but to keep bringing glory to Him thru every story you write. (((hugs))) to you!!!

      Thank you Caron! I have to believe that comparing worship to a donkey can only come from God! Thank you for your encouragement! It means more than you know!

    Yes! I’d love to be a Jedidiah. I’m also a timid worshipper…and have been a silent one of late. It’s funny how God gives us inspiration where we may least expect it! He’s given me a good Five Minute October neighbor!

      Oh, God Bless you Meg! I have to smile sometimes or even laugh when an idea strikes because it is such an unlikely comparison I know it must be from God! Thank you so much for taking the time to comment!
