Take a deep breath. You made it. It’s Friday.

Got five minutes? Let’s write. Let’s write in shades of real and brave and unscripted.
Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not.

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Go buck wild with encouragement for the five minuter who linked up before you.

Won’t you give me your best five minutes for the prompt:




Writing is a terrible act of bare naked. How we lay our lives and mistakes and grappling after faith out here in public. Writing takes courage. And courage, I tell my boys, is what we do through our fear. We don’t write because we’re brave. We write because it reminds us that brave is sometimes the opposite of big or sure or bold. Brave is sometimes sharing the scared things. I will share my scared things here. I will admit to my doubts and my questions and my desperate clinging to the cross of a God who makes sense to me beyond big words or theologies. A God who reminds me I’m a kid and He loves me and won’t let me fall. As we cross traffic together. As cars grumble and groan and lorries roll down the road and I feel small and lost I will raise my tiny hand and tuck it into His. I will remember how little I know and that love rarely requires perfect answers, just a willingness to believe. He will hold me and I will sit on His lap as I type down my scared words even on the days I want to hide. I will be held.
