It’s Friday–just. And so I’m taking just five tiny minutes to write without worrying or editing. You should join us, there’s nothing like the Five Minute Friday community. Seriously.
The prompt this week is Join.
My morning starts with the Hello Mornings gang all meeting up on twitter for some amazing fellowship and prayer sharing. I joined them almost by accident three challenges ago, and haven’t quit since.
It took a touch of bravery to jump in and participate with total strangers but I did it anyway, because I couldn’t stand not being a part of the community I saw there.
And this space, this Five Minute Friday thing happened much the same way–though really neither was an accident, because I am most certain God planned for these things all along.
If you want community, at some point you have to just join them. You have to crack the door and peek out, extend your hand, open your mouth and start sharing–
You can sit on the sidelines and watch but the benefits and risks of joining are so worth it. I’ve met so many amazing people through this journey.
I’ve been blessed beyond my wildest imaginations by words from “strangers’ and the prayers of people I may never get to actually meet in person, this side of heaven.
If you’re looking for a community of friends, if you need some seriously uplifting fellowship, you are going to have to join one, introduce yourself and make it home.
I’d love to meet you there.
What’s holding you back from joining in?
Joining Lisa-Jo and fabulous others for a five minute write. Why don’t you give it a try?
