Five Minute Friday: Finish

Will you all bear with me and my recurring theme of late for one more blog post? I'm still a little lost and still finding my way and still procrastinating on Five Minute Friday and posting it at the last possible moment. I have good intentions of writing and posting on the actual Friday that the prompt goes live, but it never seems to happen, so I think... by Monday at least, but that doesn't happen either. and then I find it being Wednesday night and the house is quiet and I gave it a go... but it doesn't get posted until late afternoon on Thursday, mere hours before the next prompt goes live... but here it is anyway.




My {approximately} Five Minutes on Finish:


Some days I think I"m finished with this whole writing thing, that the words in my heart and my head have just dried up and disappeared. Some days, most days, the desire to write is so far gone that I find something, anything else to do (even housework) just so I don't have to sit down and write (which is why I'm attempting 5 minute Friday almost a week later).

Writing, it's what all the cook kids are doing and try as I might, I've never been one of the cool kids.

But finishing cannot be called finishing, when it's really quitting. Quitting is never the right answer. And I keep saying that I'm not going to quit.

So I'm finished with the quitting, finished with the excuses (for a day or two, anyhow) finished with the wishing and hoping but being unwilling to act.

Finishing brings about beginnings.

Fact is, I don't know what I"m beginning and chances are there will be multiple do-overs, but each time I want to quit I'm reminded that He's not finished with me yet and Hw ho has begun this good work in me will bring it to completion

... in His time.
... in His way.
... for His glory.


and He will do the same in your unfinished story.  Let Him keep writing His story on your heart, and I will let Him keep writing His story on my heart... and occasionally, I'll write it down and share it with you!

  2. I don't know why, but my comment weren't submitted when I tried to comment your post...
    I want you to know that you're in good company, being late to the FMF party. I tend to submit my link Wednesday nights or Thursday afternoons, myself.

    I think the point is all about being free to write, to get that "writing-spark" without having to second guess yourself or be judged by not being good enough. I think it is okay to be late to the party, or else it wouldn't have had that long submission-window(a week!). I Think it is SO great of you to choose to write, even though you sometimes want to quit. I am so glad you decided to write, and found your words meaningful! I loved this sentence: "I don't know what I"m beginning and chances are there will be multiple do-overs, but each time I want to quit I'm reminded that He's not finished with me yet and Hw ho has begun this good work in me will bring it to completion

    ... in His time.
    ... in His way.
    ... for His glory."

    This is SO true, and something we all need to be reminded of from time to time;-) Please do keep on writing, and I pray that God will give you the spark, and desire to write! God bless your heart!
