Five Minute Friday Mar 7 Willing

Willing

disposed or consenting; inclined: willing to go along.
cheerfully consenting or ready: a willing worker.
done, given, borne, used, etc., with cheerful readiness.

 

Willing

What am I willing to do?  What am I willing to give?  God gave His SON, Jesus Christ.  Only Begotten Son!  How much more love can you give?  He gave me all.

 

What am I willing to give?  , My thoughts turn to Lent and the idea that you should give up something you love, to become closer to God and spend time in prayer and reflection.

I know for me, this time is a time of introspection and servant hood.  Not to anyone, except God.

I enjoy being able to spend my days giving back.  Being in the word.  Studying more.  I am so blessed that I can do this.  There are someday I get extremely frustrated with not being able to do as much as others, however, then I realize that I have such an abundance of blessings.  BECAUSE I can spend my days as much as I can With Him!

 

Become willing to study, Willing to Learn, Willing to pray, but most of all Willing to Love!

 

God gives us great strength through His mercy and grace.  Be willing to submit!

 

Five Minute Friday

Five Minute Friday

 

(this is from Lisa-Jo Baker’s Blog that explains FMF)

So, here’s the skinny: every Friday for going on four years now hundreds of people have joined a kind of writing flash mob over here.

We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that I post here at 1 minute past midnight EST ever Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the #FMFParty (It stands for Five Minute Friday Party).

No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation.

Unscripted. Unedited. Real.

It started because I’d been thinking about writing and how often our perfectionism gets in the way of our words. And I figured, why not take 5 minutes and see what comes out: not a perfect post, not a profound post, just five minutes of focused writing.

So now on Fridays a group of people who love to throw caution to the wind and just write without worrying if it’s just right gather to share what five minutes buys them. Just five minutes.

Your words. This shared feast.

It’s easy to join in, just:

  1. Check what the prompt is on my Lisa Jo Baker’s Blog.
  2. Write a post in only five minutes on that topic on your blog.
  3. {And if you don’t have a blog, no worries! Just leave your writing as a comment on my post}
  4. Link over to Lisa’s blog and invite friends to join in.
  5. Select the permalink to your post {so not your blog url http://www.lisajobaker.com but your post url  http://www.lisajobaker.com/2012/07/five-minute-friday-2/ }
  6. Using the blue linky tool at the bottom of Lisa’ Five Minute Friday post enter your link.
  7. It will also walk you through selecting which photo you want to show up in the linky.
  8. Your post will show up in our Five Minute Friday linky.
  9. Be sure and encourage the person who linked up before you!

Our most important requirement for participation: There’s really only one absolute, no ifs, ands or buts about it Five Minute Friday rule: you must visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community
