Welcome to another edition of The Friday Five. Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and snagged some great deals, if you went Black Friday or Cyber Monday shopping. I was off all last week and enjoyed the extra time for R&R and fellowship time with family. As you know Friday is when I like to show a little blog love to some good reads I have discovered during the week. This week’s blog love goes to:
Words Have Power, But God’s Word Has More Power by Danielle at Real Life Real God
Reading her words take me back to those moments of the little school yard saying of sticks and stone may break my bones but words can never hurt me. We are all old enough now to know better. Words have a way of being etched into our souls for a lifetime.
When Others Have Forsaken You by Marilyn at Single and Content
She shares about an aha moment she had when reading a passage of scripture. In looking at her past she sees how the enemy had intended to use all the moments of being forsaken my people in her life to leave her in a broken down state.
Flood Not Fear by Jennifer at You Are My Girls
A rally cry to this heart of mine not to get stuck in the fear and a reminder that it’s only through allowing God to flood my abode that I can truly walk free. I love these words she wrote,
We have to push forward into who He says we are, or we will never hear His voice in us sing. We have to push forward, through fear, through doubt, through whispers that tell us we don’t have what it takes . . . to claim the truth of who we are. –Jennifer
What I Want My Kids to Know About…Failure by Kendra at The Ruth Experience
As one who has often said no more times out of the fear of failure than embracing the lessons learned during the attempts, I can really appreciate Kendra’s quest to teach her children the value that can be found in our failures.
The Killers of Creativity by Amy at Blogs by Christian Women
In the past I have talked about 4 Creativity Snatchers and Making Room for Creativity so it’s no wonder that I was drawn to Amy’s post describing 4 C Killers that can leave our creativity
