Here we are again. It’s Five Minute Friday!
You probably already know, but in case you don’t, Five Minute Friday begins Thursday evening on Twitter. We gather there for a Five Minute Friday party (#fmfparty) where Kate gives the weekly one-word prompt. We disperse to free-write for five minutes, and gather back together at her place to share and encourage.
And here we go…
This week’s word:
“You have to decide if you’re going to wilt like a daisy or if you’re just going to go forward and live the life that you’ve been granted.” – Kevin Costner
Daisies are beautiful, but like all flowers, they eventually wilt. I’m guessing, deep-down, none of us want to wilt. I’m also guessing we all desire to live the life we’ve been granted.
God has given each of us life. He has marked our days before us. Even before we lived a day.
Every detail of my life was already written in Your book; You established the length of my life before I ever tasted the sweetness of it. Psalm 139:16b (Voice)
Yes, God has blessed us with this life. But many of us have been knocked down or around in it. Maybe life hasn’t seemed so sweet as of late.
But we have a decision to make. We can decide how we’re going to react. We can decide how we’re going to live this life we’ve been granted.
You and I both probably know people who have overcome tragic circumstances, or who are walking through them now, and are finding the good in and through them. What’s happening may not be good, but they are somehow seeing it. They are somehow embracing the good. They are deciding to make the most of the life they’ve been given.
I want to be like that.
I want to live the life I’ve been granted.
And live it to the fullest. To make the most of each and every moment.
How about you?
Let’s not be like wilting daisies.
Let’s decide right here to make the most of the life we’ve been granted. Every moment. All for God’s glory.
May God bless you today, friend!
