5 Minute Friday Awake

Awake

Awake, my dear.

You keep hiding behind the curtains

Waiting for someone to call you on stage

Not knowing that you’ve been invited

To dance

To laugh

To play

To awaken yourself

and awaken the world to all that you live

don’t hide anymore

let them see you

let them behold the one He loves

let them take in all the beauty

that He created

so, darling

stop trying

to be anyone else

celebrate you

comparison skirts the edge of the cliff

leaving no winners

so awake

awake

awake to the life set before you

only you can sing your song

only you can awaken the desires

dream the dreams

do the good works

planned long before

just for you

stop looking around

and start living

awake.

5 minutes of writing your little heart out however that looks–sometimes it’s quiet, sometimes it’s loud, sometimes there’s stops and starts while other times you find flow, the beauty lies in writing what only you can do in just 5 minutes and leaving the ends loose because it’s okay not to go back and edit, edit, edit.  there’s freedom in just writing. so join in on the fun and link up at lisa jo’s for the prompt: awake

  1. I love this part: “only you can…do the good works/planned long ago/just for you” It’s encouraging when those good works seem so mundane. But it’s part of God’s plan, not just coincidence or chance.

    Thanks for sharing your heart this morning!

  2. I love all of this, but especially the invitation to celebrate, and not compare. Oh, how I just need to hear these words! “Awake to the life set before you.” Yes, may we always be awake to this. I’m always so glad to read your words!

  3. I love all of this, especially this: “only you can sing your song
    only you can awaken the desires
    dream the dreams
    do the good works
    planned long before
    just for you
    stop looking around
    and start living
    awake.” Beautiful. Inspiring.

  4. What a beautiful post, I can’t believe you did it in 5 minutes – yet I can definitely see your beautiful heart in these words.

    I love how you remind me that I need to be me because no one else can. I love that, oh and the part about already being invited to do it.

    Great post friend!

    • Thanks, friend!! And ha sometimes I think I should set a 5 minute timer more often than not seems to come out more from God than when I think too much about it and it’s a challenge! And just sayin’ I love watching you from afar being you!
