(I’m joining Lisa-Jo and her Five Minute Fridays. Rules are: for only five short, bold, beautiful minutes. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not. Won’t you join us?)
It’s a new year with new, or maybe not so new, rules. I’ve set a few goals, I’ve laid out some steps to take. I dive head first into this passion of writing. And when I do, I also dive into the fears, the doubt, the uncertainty. I struggle to swim with the words that threaten to drown me. I fight against the tide and the current that battle my spirit. I am so small – but a single drop in the sea.
And I am reminded of an old hymn and out of nowhere, it comforts me.
Little is much, when God is in it.
Labor not for wealth of fame.
For there’s a prize and you can win it,
If you go in Jesus’ name.
Little is Much. A drop starts a ripple, a ripple forms a wave, a wave moves with fierceness given to it only by God.
So, despite the feeling of being only a drop, of not mattering, of not making a difference, I stand on the edge of my dreams – take a deep breath – and Dive.
