Five Minute Friday-On Waiting

Five Minute Friday Here’s how the game works: you simply stop, drop and write. Set your words free. Don’t edit them, don’t fret over them, don’t try to make them perfect.
On Waiting...

I am learning about waiting. God is teaching me many lessons.

I have been waiting to join a church because IF we moved soon, I don't want to be bothered with JUST having started over again.

I have been waiting to be kind to my neighbors until God moves me into THE PERFECT neighborhood of his choosing. Not this one.

I have been waiting to have another child. Waiting for a job. Waiting to be emotionally ready. Waiting to be more mature. (I feel bad for my first born sometimes!) Waiting to be a mom again.

I have been waiting for my husband to change, to grow up, to be more like me! jk

I have been waiting on the Lord. I have been waiting on myself.

I have been realizing that, although I know there are TIMES FOR WAITING, I still need to be active in my waiting.

JOIN THE CHURCH you have been attending for eight years and stop waiting to move away from it.

Be kind to your prejudice neighbors. Be gentle with their kids who have seen a lot of abuse in the past. Be genorous with your time and talents. SHOW THESE neighbors Jesus and stop waiting for new and better neighbors.

Although I don't think it's time to have another child just yet, do stop waiting and talk to God about the desires of your heart.

Stop waiting for my husband to change and change myself. Don't be so cranky. Stop holding grudges. I want him to read his Bible more, but I hope that he catches me reading mine to inspire him.

Stop WAITING and get to action.

Time Up.

So, I am not going to proof read this and just push 'publish post.' AHHH! (It's actually 7 minutes until Friday here, but I won't have a computer tomorrow!)

Actions speak louder than waiting.


  1. This is very inspirational. I love it.

  2. I like the idea of being active in waiting. You are right, it is all too easy to put off doing something because you are waiting for something else.

  3. Loved this. Isn't is so easy to fall into the "waiting game"? It's like we fight even the little bit of commitment it takes to be a good neighbor, find a church, ect. I so get this!
