Break // Five Minute Friday

 

 Break. 

Break away from whatever holds you back. 

Break up with fear. 

Break norms. 

Give freedom an upper hand and let the breakaway chains of faith and family be your only anchors as your soar. 

     | You never know how far you fly until you fall and test your wings. |

Break away from fear and expectations. 

Break away with time to spare. 

Break and let your freedom lead you closer to the love that never ends from the One whose beginning we cannot know. 

Don’t let fear of finding the edge of Jesus hold you back. His boundless love will pull you in before the broken world can even test the strength of your rebellion. 

Don’t be afraid to ask hard questions. 

You can’t break God.

As always Five Minute Friday leaves more questions about possible meaning than answers about what I may have actually meant. Interesting. 

It feels more like an exercise in poetry since my words flow slower in this setting than maybe elsewhere. 

My perfectionism reigns and I want to edit everything til it says what I want it to, but part of the exercise is to leave it to be as it wants. Let the questions rest and be questions as they will.

  1. “Beak away with time to spare.” That’s a hard one for me as I feel like these days, I have no time to spare. Thanks for sharing your version of break. Blessings, Carrie from FMF

    1. Thanks for choosing a line, Carrie! I feel like I have very little time to spare too, but sometimes I choose to stay caught in something until the bitter end when breaking away a little earlier would have been beneficial. To me, It’s not so much about having everyday time to spare as breaking away before the last second. If that makes any sense. Thanks for stopping through this week!

  2. This: “Don’t let fear of finding the edge of Jesus hold you back. His boundless love will pull you in before the broken world can even test the strength of your rebellion.”

    He is utterly unbreakable. Thanks for this piece.
