Write 31 days, 31 days of 5 minute free writes, writing

Today is the first of October, and I am once again joining with Kate and other friends for the 31 days of five minute free writes. It's the Five Minute Friday concept, but lasting all month!

So here is to a great month - stop by often!

Today's word is: story

I believe God has given each of us a story to share with others. It is up to us to choose how to share that story, but it needs to be shared. Some people create artwork, others write music or poetry. My friend Mike is a master storyteller. He can capture an audience with his stories and no one leaves until his story is finished. But me? I write words!

I can tell you a story, but more often, I write that story down. To me, the most important stories to tell are the ones that show how God is working in our lives! When we recognize the ways in which He guides, directs, and protects us, we become aware of how much other people also need encouragement and hope! If you have ever had a discouraging day and then someone cheered you up, you can understand how important it is for us to share words of encouragement, words of love, words of hope.

You may not be able to change the entire world by the sharing of your story, but for at least one person, the sharing of your story can be world-changing!

Ask God to give you just the right words to share your story - because someone needs to hear it!


  1. Hi, stories are all about who we are. I can't wait to read more of your series this month. Be sure to link up with me at the #LMMLinkup this month on Mondays:

  2. You are so right, Carol. Our stories can be life-changing, and words of encouragement are golden. Visiting you today from FMF!
