Five Minute Friday — Same

Well, it’s Saturday so it must mean it’s time for Five Minute Friday. Visit Kate’s place ( to view some of the incredible spontaneous writing around … all on the same prompt. This week it is SAME.

The timer is set, so let’s GO

No matter how much things change, they always seem the same. We’re wired for routine. Circumstances may change, but the things we do seem to remain constant. We tend to do things the same way … the way we learned, the way we experienced.

The same is true with our prayer life. We often fall into the “same” routines — quiet time, prayer time, petitions, even praise — all at a predetermined time and place. The words are different but the script is the same.

Don’t you think it’s time to break the mold?

It’s time to get out of the ruts of our lives and move forward with our lives. Enjoy it. Experience it. Live it. We don’t have to do things the same old way. We don’t have to eat the same foods, go to the same places, kneel, sit and stand … STOP

… on cue.

Different can be good.

THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: To handle yourself, use your head; to handle others, use your heart.
