Five Minute Friday: Jump

Five Minute Friday

It's that time again... time for 5 minutes of freedom to write without worrying about what comes out, without editing and backtracking, without it having to be just perfect.

Wanna join in? Be sure to check out Five Minute Friday at Lisa-Jo's place!!

Today's Prompt: Jump

A few of my dreaming friends are attending a retreat this weekend called Jumping Tandem. I'm a little jealous of them as the lovely Lisa-Jo and the inspiring Holley Gerth are two of the speakers.  It's all about pursuing your dreams and figuring it all out... and man, could I use some help with that. But God, in His wisdom never swung open wide a door... Not that I gave Him any opportunity to, but that's not what this is about.

Dreams... Jumping Tandem... working together... walking through open door... crying over closed doors... jumping into the unknown... trying something new... stepping out of your comfort zone... DREAMING... even when others don't understand, don't believe in your God-given dreams.

I read this verse in my twitter feed this week.

Psalm 18:29 For by thee I have run through a troop; and by my God have I leaped over a wall.

And I thought "Leaped" which led to "Jumped" and I realized that sometimes you have to JUMP OVER THE WALL to get to your dream. (click to tweet that)

Right now, I feel that my biggest wall is lack of focus and lack of discipline... but "BY MY GOD," I am going to leap over that wall!  It may be next week, It may be next month... It may not be until October.

Somebody please hold me accountable... and maybe hold my hand together as we leap over a wall... with God.


Community Comments: What is one of your dreams? What is one wall that is in your way? Will you leap over it?
