I am linking up for the Five Minute Friday. The FMF is hosted by Kate Motaung over at our Five Minute Friday website. Today’s word prompt is “potential.” We’d love to have you join us.
What potential do you have?
What gifts has God given you that could lead to great potential?
Are you a writer who potentially could become a best selling author?
Are you a singer who could potentially star in a Broadway musical?
Or are you a baker who can take ingredients and turn them into a potential award winning cake?
There is so much potential in our world. But often I think we don’t see it. Or we let fear stop us from seeing our own potential in this world.
But God gives us all potential. My potential led me to self publishing a book. My potential is leading me to be a mom by fostering rather than through the traditional way of being a family.
Teachers see potential. Coaches see potential. Parents see potential. Pastors see potential. God sees potential. Do you see your potential? Because I see the potential in you. You all are so gifted, my friends!
Interesting, I haven’t thought a lot about my potential.
I don’t think many of us do.
I like this perspective. I agree, we often let fear stop us. And go Momma, fostering to adopt is a beautiful hard. And self-publishing your book, definitely taking your potential and using it.
Wow, such a great reminder! As I wrote in my own FMF post, I do not fulfill my potential in any sort of amazing kind of way, but I use my potential to inspire others with my blog. I love your big dreams in this post. Yes, fear still holds me back from trying to publish my writing too. I’m so glad you took that leap.
Hi, sometimes we are hardest on ourselves and can’t see our true potential. i am so glad Christ does. Thanks for visiting me this week.
That is so true! Glad to visit you!
“There is so much potential in our world. But often I think we don’t see it. Or we let fear stop us from seeing our own potential in this world.” We get paralyzed by our limited view. But if we can embrace what God reveals to us, we will be astounded at what happens!
I suspect that if on one day in our lives, we heed God’s call, we’ve met His potential for us, and He’s delighted.
Your post brings a tear to my eye. I was just telling Chris that I think I’ve forgotten how to dream. Just getting by, just surviving the daily stuff, has been my focus. To dream, I have to remember both my potential and God’s goodness. Thank you, friend.
Yes you do friend. And you’re welcome!
