dare

Today's Five Minute Free Write is a part of the regular Five Minute Friday.  If you are a writer and would like to join in, it's really quite simple.  Write for five minutes on the word of the day. No editing.  Post it.  Link it up at Kate's Five Minute Friday.  Read the post before yours and leave a word of encouragement behind.  This week Kate has a giveaway that EVERYONE can participate in as a winner, so check that out, too!  The word for today is DARE. Ready?  Set?  Go!

::Dare::

Dare to do something WAY out of your comfort zone.

I don't mean a YOLO kind of thing or one of your bucket list items.  I mean the thing that the Lord keeps whispering in your ear kind of thing.  You know, the kind of thing that you keep thinking you need more confirmation from Him to take the next step kind of thing because you weren't sure you heard Him correctly the first time.  Ya, that one thing that really isn't your kind of thing, in fact, it's not even close to being able to use those amazing gifts and talents that He gave you.  

I dare you to do THAT THING!

Because you aren't really doing it for you, but for Him!  And it's going to be a free falling experience that is not at all in your strength or power or might.  It will all be done in His strength.  His power.  His might.  

Go ahead.  Try it. 

I'll bet after you do it, you'll be ready to take His next dare!

STOP!

Blessings,
Tammy ~@~

Wow. Powerful post. Love your paragraph, "Because you aren't really doing it for you, but for Him! And it's going to be a free falling experience that is not at all in your strength or power or might. It will all be done in His strength. His power. His might.". So empowering. What a fantastic way to think about it. You've given me wings, lady. Thank you.
