Five Minute Friday: Limit

I’m trying something new and participating with a link up today. The challenge is to write for five minutes on a one word prompt. This was tough for me since I usually spend a lot more time writing and re-reading stuff, but it was fun too! Here’s what my flying fingers were able to get on the page in five minutes… 

When I was growing up my Dad always told us to “dream big dreams”. And I often did! But as an adult I find myself more easily intimidated to actually go after those dreams.

What makes me limit myself?

Sometimes it’s practicality and my need to plan everything. If it seems too hard to plan does that mean it’s out of reach?

Sometimes it’s comparing myself to others or to what is already out there. Can I really do that with my skills or in the place I am?

Whatever the case may be, I don’t want to lose my “dream big dreams” attitude. More importantly, I want to focus on the truth that God can and will use me no matter where I am. There is no limit to what He can do in and with my life.

Love these words by Downhere in the song “Little is Much”…

Little is much when God’s in it and no one can fathom the plans He holds, little is much when God’s in it He changes the world with the seeds with sow.

Am I putting limits on myself? Or am I even putting limits on what God can do with my life?

I want to let go of those things and trust that He is using me right where I am and will continue to shape my life just as He wants it to be.

    First of all, welcome to Five Minute Friday!! Like you, I’m wrestling with some big dream issues, with identifying what is the next step on my journey, what is God’s plan for me. I’m so glad you shared your perspective here — reading your post gave me lots to think about! 🙂

    Glad you joined in FMF today! I’ve been happy to participate again recently after a long break. Limit was a hard word for me to write about, but I managed to find some words. 🙂 I enjoyed reading yours!
