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!
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!
