I’m so thankful I can incorporate my one word, thankful, into my favorite Friday activity – Five Minute Friday, which I confess takes longer than five minutes for me to compose because I’m a
deep slow thinker, but only takes five minutes to read. That counts, right? This week, the word is break.
There are things in life that make us or break us. Do you think the things that break us are good?
If I was answering this question as a kid, I would say no. But now that I’m in the middle years, I know God used every little breaking thing to grow me into the person he created me to be.
If you look at life from a linear perspective, with one end being rigid and the other end being flexible, all the breaking has moved me closer to the flexible end.
I’m not a fan of breaking. But I am a fan of my Father. I’m willing to trust him when he breaks me because I know he only allows things for my own good. I’m happy to say I’m getting more flexible with time. Well… At least on the inside. Ha!
