Dear reader,

I’m blogging along with the Five Minute Friday’s word prompts. We free write for 5-minutes on a single word prompt. This month we’re doing 31 prompts along with #Write31Days.

Today’s Prompt: Share

I am normally a very private person so when I came across the Five Minute Friday word prompts it surprised me that I was willing to share bits of me.

I’m revealing little things that have stayed hidden for so long.

Sharing is difficult, isn’t it?

You test the waters.

Testing the temperature to make sure you don’t get burned.

Sometimes, you just have to step out.

Step out,

in faith,

in God,

in Jesus,

with the ever-present safety of the Holy Spirit and God’s Angels,

even though you know you have a high chance of being burned,

and

SHARE.

Why?

Because other people need to know they’re not alone.

They aren’t the only one who feels like an outlier.

They aren’t the only one who feels trapped by their social anxiety.

They aren’t the only one who struggles to step outside the safety zone of their home.

They have someone who can hear them, who can identify with them, who can share in the journey to freedom, to healing.

I encourage you, dear reader, to open up a little bit more.

To share your story.

No, you don’t have to share every little detail.

Just knowing that others exist in the same world, same state, same city, same neighborhood, makes all the difference.

When we share our stories, God shares his.

He gets to showcase his powerful healing abilities through his children who shine and thrive even though they’ve been wounded.

Isn’t that what living this life is all about?

Share on.
