I’m joining #FiveMinuteFriday over at Kate Motaung’s place. The word prompt is HIDDEN. Below is five minutes of free flowing writing. The forward slashes indicate where the timer started and ended. Go!
I loved to play Hide and Seek when I was a child. It was a group activity where everyone did the same thing; hide or seek. The hiders were the majority. I loved that game because I never had to stick out in the crowd.
There was no requirement for me to hit a baseball flying towards me at 5 mile an hour or kick a rolling ball or aim at something and throw it into a small hole way above my head. I could hide. And, I could hide well!
I find myself doing that in the real world sometimes. Hiding, that is. It’s so much easier than standing out. I can keep silent rather than speaking or sit rather than stand. I’m great at driving into my garage and letting the door down never to appear again until morning. Hiding!
There are times when I need to STAND OUT.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:19-20
I’ve been called to STAND OUT and win the lost,
STAND OUT and disciple,
STAND OUT and encourage those along the way.
Daily, I’m commanded to STAND OUT to fight against the wiles of the devil.
So today, I choose not to HIDE!
I choose to STAND OUT!
