Five Minute Friday – Jump

People all over the world blogging on the same topic on the same day for just five minutes and linking up at Lisa Jo’s place. Today’s topic: Jump.

Five Minute Friday



I am poised at the edge. Waiting to jump. I know where I am planning to jump, I believe God is calling me to do something. But I can’t jump. I have to wait. And the waiting is HARD. Really hard. I like to take action. It feels much better to be doing something rather than sitting and waiting. But there is a lesson in the waiting, too.

Depending on God’s timing. Not running forward on my own, but learning to be patient and wait for Him to move. I am waiting for the word GO, so I can jump. And I will be ready.

He has taught me so much in these last few years. I am so glad He can see the big picture. He knows the plans He has for me. And those plans are for His Glory, which is also for my good. I get to glorify Him in the waiting. I get to be shown faithful in the waiting. I get to praise Him even while I pace back and forth wanting to jump!

And there will be such freedom in the jumping. I may just whoop and holler and jump and twirl. My little girl and I will dance up and down the street in celebration.

As soon as God says it’s time.

  1. Oh, bless you and your patience! I’m a doer, too! Nothing harder than waiting and yet, so necessary! I’m excited for you and that you are poised and ready to go when it’s time. Best wishes whatever it is!

  2. I can feel your toes curling over the edge with anticipation as you wait to jump! May your heart find quiet space as you listen for the “go!” you know is coming. Stopping by from Five Minute Friday and thankful I did!
