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!
What do your hands tell about you? Mine have become wrinkled and covered in age spots. My fingers are not as straight or limber as they used to be. It’s not surprising though, these hands have worked, nurtured, loved, disciplined, applauded, and wrung in worry. They tell the story of my life.
There are hands however, that have saved my life! The hands of Jesus. Pierced by nails as he hung on the cross dying for my sins. Those precious hands tell the story of salvation and the greatest love there is!
My hands won’t ever tell a story like that, but I can! Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the kind of witness I am to all God has done in my life. I need and hope to be more willing to share my journey of Grace with others. Hands down, it’s the most important story I have to tell!
