In the month of October I will be linking up with other writers on Five Minute Friday for thirty-one days. Each day I will write about one word for five minutes. Here goes…

Before I started this one word everyday, I was in Alaska with author Leslie Leyland Fields who taught us “Your Story for God’s Glory.” We all have a story to tell, but how will we tell our story?

By October I was still wondering if my story and my small voice should be heard. Should I accept the fact that millions of us will live a mostly normal life, die and be forgotten? I am part of the unremarkable, unnoticed, people in the world. I dare say, we make up the highest percentage! Is that bad? I don’t think so, not when I read that God makes us strong in our weakness.

In the blog world millions of people are striving to have a voice. In this context does one more voice accomplish anything?

Are we shedding our negative thoughts off into cyber space to find some kind of peace? Or are we purposeful; writing to share the knowledge of peace from the only one who gives true peace, Christ himself.

As this month comes to a close, strangely many leaves are still green on our trees. This is not normal here in the North, but I have discovered, change is what’s normal.

Am I getting closer to understanding my story, or do I have more than one story to share? This month has taught me to think purposefully. I’ve developed another level of discipline. I do not surge on with a rapid pace, that’s not me. Slowly and surely I will accomplish what God has for me.

What is your story and how will it make a difference in your life? Will you direct your thoughts to the Creator for the answers?

Today the clouds are minimal and blue sky is taking over. At the moment, the sun is beating on my face and I can barely see the computer screen.

I love it!

The sun has been a rare occurrence lately and it calls me today with a quiet, irresistible  summons.

As with any writer, your voice develops over time, but I think it is in perpetual growth.  Just as life itself brings changes for us, our voice becomes something stronger, unless we allow bitterness to grow, grief to consume, or anger to become comfortable in our hearts.

Today the sun is here, and the big yellow ball shooting its Vitamin D at me has changed my attitude tremendously.  I think today I could take on the world! Because of it, I want to bring hope in my voice. May it be encouragement, peace and light to see God’s grace for all of us.

No matter how much rain falls in your life, the sun always returns.

It may even bring a rainbow.
