Five Minute Friday - Story


It's time for the "Five Minute Friday" blogging post. The inspiration comes from Lisa Jo Baker


What you do is set your timer for five minutes and write whatever you want according to the prompt Lisa places on her blog every Friday. Then you go back, link your blog and give support to those who posted before you. And, we connect on Twitter with #FiveMinuteFriday.

Ready.
Set.
Go.


Story.

I don't know how my life story is going to play out. That's God's plan. And, I'm okay with waiting to see where my journey through life takes me.

I used to have to have to plan everything. Right down to the tiniest detail. I don't do that anymore. More times than not, my plans needed adjusting along the way. I wasn't perfect. And, I'm okay with that.

Now, I live my life day by day. I feel more fulfilled knowing I only have to get through today. I don't have to worry about tomorrow or next week. My story unfolds in front of me one day at a time.

In all God's glory, He knows I can only handle one day at a time. I am comforted knowing that God is writing my life's story and that He has special plans for me.

I'll be patient. I'll wait. I look forward to living my life's story, God's way. Following His path in my life's journey.


STOP.

I too am a planner, who's life has taken some unexpected turns. I think God knew I needed to experience some things in order to let go of some of the control I was attempting to hold on to.

Enjoyed this today...visiting from Five Minute Friday.

Thank you for this much needed reminder to live one day at a time. My brain jumps to concerns about tomorrow, next week, next month, next year far too often. Stopping by from Five Minute Friday. Have a lovely weekend!

I am not very good about going with the flow. I'm a planner. I need to learn to let go and trust. Great post! --Lisa

I have loose plans in my head and that works out pretty good, so far. :)

I like your words of wisdom here.

Thank you, everyone for your comments. It's interesting to see those that like to plan and those that don't. Everyone is different. Have a blessed day!
