Hey friends, it’s time for Five Minute Friday, where I gather with hundreds of other writers to write with abandon, freely, for five minutes only. Come join the fun at Lisa-Jo’s blog.
I’ll be honest with you, friends. I often feel like a big old bunch of nothing. I’m not seeking compliments…just baring my heart here. Tonight, I saw a look of Twitter action on the importance of YOUR story, and why we write it.
But many days, I don’t think my story really matters. <-Click to Tweet!
I’m just an average girl, with an average job in an average small town. Yeah, I’ve done some neat things and seen some amazing places, but I struggle to believe in the power of my story. I often wonder if it really has any impact on other. I have nothing spectacular to offer.
The only redeeming part of my story is God’s grace and His power to change my life into something beautiful. In the scale of His glory, my story is nothing. And at the same time, He cares about it. He cares about me. And friend, He cares about you.
Though I struggle to believe in the power of my words, I’m still here. Yes, I often think my words are nothing, and sometimes that keeps me from writing. But I know He can transform my nothing-amazingness into something truly amazing.
