My Small Life - Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday Today I am linking up with Lisa-Jo and Five Minute Friday. Everyone writes on one word for just five minutes. Link the results - read the post before yours and we are community.

This week's word is small and this has really struck me as I tackle my latest project. I am writing my story, my testimony, my life. The funny thing is that to me, my life seems small and yet so many people have told me I have a story to share, a testimony to encourage others and a life that can help women going through the same.

The thought of writing my story is not small, actually writing another book is a huge commitment. The only way I can do it is to think small. People usually say "think big" but that means thinking about a book, publishing, marketing, putting my whole life in a format that makes sense and can be read and understood by others - that's huge! When I think of it I feel defeated and will never get started.

I think small, I take one incident, one life event and I write about that. One moment of time in a lifetime is a small thing to write about. The thing about small things is as you get more of them they become a big pile of small things and that's life.

Don't be afraid of what lies ahead of you, it may look like a huge challenge but it starts with the small. We commit to God by first saying "yes", a small word with big rewards and challenges. Go small and see the big picture.

  1. "The thing about small things is as you get more of them they become a big pile of small things and that's life." I love that! God can totally use the "small" things in our life, the things we deem insignificant, to touch someone else's life. I don't know your testimony or your story, but I am sure as you surrender your writing skills to glorify God, what will immerge is a beautiful story of God's love, grace, and steadfast faithfulness. What better story could there be? Thanks for posting to FMF :) Maybe someday I will indeed hear your story.
