Joining the Five Minute Friday community today to write about the prompt: Time


I used to think small. I used to dream small. In fact, there was a time I didn’t dream at all. Not because I didn’t have a yearning to do and to be. But, simply, because I didn’t know I could – that I had permission to.

You see, I believed that the great, wonderful and fine God-ordained accomplishments in life were reserved for the other people: the beautiful, intelligent, talented, gifted and confident ones. And I didn’t fit into any of these categories. Or so I thought.

But then, something remarkable happened. A fellow woman-of-faith showed me a verse in Scripture: “You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last.” [John 15:19].

He chose me. He appointed me. I pondered, I meditated, and over time I realised this: if He sent His Son to die for me, then I am one of those people. And I have His permission – to not only dream – but to dream beyond all that I could ever aspire to, on my own.

Now, I dream big. I dream constantly. I dream of all that He can and will accomplish through and in me – when I dare to dream at all.


Linking up to Kate Motaung’s Five-Minute-Friday.
