I am linking up for Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog Heading Home. Today’s prompt is “Inspire.” We’d love to have you join us on Thursday nights for our Twitter party.
God’s master hand paints streaks of blue and pink across the sky. The sun sets as the moon wakes up and plants itself in the sky. Clouds of all shapes and sizes scatter across the sky. My eye is drawn to the incredibleness of Gods master hand creating all that is good captured in the click of the shutter and through the camera lens held in my hands.
Words pour out onto the page forming sentences and paragraphs. This gift inspires her to tell her story. The words she shares linger on her lips and in her heart. In addition, the words she reads continually linger in her heart too. Words that simply declare “me too!” Words that hold the treasures of her writer friends as she gently holds them close to her heart and chest. She is careful to hold them with the utmost care and love. But most of all, words that encourage and call each of us to be storytellers!
Words that tell us who and whose we are. Words that encapsulate our own gifts and inspire us to share our stories with the world. Words that link our hearts and hands together as we pray for one another. Our hands lifted up to our good good Father as we release our stories; these very words we’ve been inspired to write. Like the puff of a summer dandelion, these words blow into the breeze carrying with them the love, heart and soul of those who wrote them.
Inspired words, carried by one another, woven together…as our arms link around each other’s necks and we embrace in a holy hug inspired by the very first word in this world; Jesus himself.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and without him not one thing came into being.”–John 1:1-2 (NRSV)
