It’s 5 Minute Friday. Write for 5 minutes on one topic. Go.
Well, really more like STEP – as in step out of the boat
or it could be DIVE in there and dig up that buried talent.
Yes, I said buried talent – as in the guy Jesus talked about who dug a hole and put his talent in it
because he was afraid.
That was me these past few weeks.
I have a treasure and I’ve wanted to hang on to that treasure. Because to use it means the certainty of it goes away. Yes, it would be helpful to me and enjoyable to me. But when it’s gone, it’s gone and I have no guarantee I can continue.
I’m talking about my precious gift certificate for 4 more weeks of HEW. (You can read the whole story here.)
God convicted me that I was operating in fear by not using that.
So next week I start back.
It’s a DIVE – A step out of the boat, like Peter.
And just like a kid on the high dive, I’m a little apprehensive!
Do I have any opportunities for income on the horizon? No.
Might this be my last 4 weeks at HEW? Yes
Does God want me to step out and enjoy them without worry or fear? Yes
So I will.
I’m DIVING into this treasure. And I’m DIVING into exploring income-generating opportunities for me. Since my 1st priority is homeschooling the boys, it has to be just the right opportunity.
Mostly, I’m DIVING into a deeper dependence on God. (more on that in a later post!)
