Five Minute Friday is a special time set aside each week where, as our hostess and inspiration, Lisa-Jo Baker, puts it, "We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt...no extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real."
Today's prompt is nothing. So...here...we...
We've all heard the saying, "Nothing ventured, nothing gained." And Benjamin Franklin was right when he said it.
Too often we go around doing the same old thing the same old way, thinking that, this time, we will get a different result. When nothing happens, we get frustrated.
If we want a different result, we're going to have to do something besides what we would do under 'normal' circumstances. And, believe me, no one dislikes change more than I do, but, dog gone it! Sometimes you just have to take a chance, get out of your comfort zone, and do something different...which is exactly what I plan on doing in a lot of areas in the very near future.
If there is an area, or areas, of your life in which you seem to have gone around, and around, in the same ol' circle for far too long, talk to God about it. Let Him know what's in your heart, and ask Him to guide you in making the changes that are needful to get you out of your rut and be successful. Then, make the change, and make it one for the better!
"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God" (Philippians 4:6).
All My Love,
