Stay {Five Minute Friday}

There’s always that niggling fear that no matter how hard we try we’ll stay the same.

We’ll never move on to something better.
We’ll never be better.
Our lives will never change.

Recently one of my friends posted a facebook status about getting up everyday and expecting it to be different than the last. Better maybe. And that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

There was an attitude of hopelessness.
Expected failure of each day to live up to expectations.
Fear of the same.

With an underlying almost drowned out sense of hope and how we hope day after day for change. For better things.

It’s our human nature. That touch of incomplete God stuck in us at the last.

When Eden’s gates were closed we were left with that desire for change.

That hole where perfect leaves everything else lacking.

So we wait and hope. And give up hope.

Staying in our own lives refusing to give up.

Waiting for something better.


Stay hopeful.

Waiting for the glorious perfect.



Today I’m linking up with Lisa Jo for Five Minute Friday!
