Five Minute Friday is the brainchild of Gypsy Mama. We write for 5 minutes on the given topic. I proof mine to be sure it makes sense and doesn’t have typos. Then I add a photo and links and it is on its way! Go to Gypsy Mama’s site and see links to the others who have written it. They are very interesting and creative! It is a lot of fun.
Am I growing in grace?
I’m growing in girth…working hard to lose a few pounds.
I’m growing in relationships…but don’t do well keeping up with all of them.
I’m growing in years…and waning in energy and stamina.
I’m growing in awareness of a divided heart…that is so often focused on the mundane rather than the eternal.
I’m growing in years of marriage…am I continuing to grow in my marriage?
I am growing in my awareness of how much I need Christ!
When I was younger and more energetic, I was able to do more in my own strength (or so I thought!).
My self-righteous robes are becoming more and more tattered. I can’t “do” the Christian life. I am utterlly dependent on Christ.
For me, that is growth.
LOL:) last week when i said i was working…i was really out partying. don’t you recognize me? especially with that cigarette hanging out of my mouth! 🙂
When was the picture taken?
Sounds like authentic Christian growth to me!
yes laura, i think you’re right:)
Isn’t it interesting that the older we get the more we realize we need Jesus?
yes beth, i guess most of us DO get wiser as we age:)
Yes and Amen! Knowing that we are nothing and can do nothing without Him is growth indeed!!!
How beautiful. Growing in how much we need Christ. Amen.
thanks eva, christine, tracey and janelle for stopping by and commenting. loved having you!
I love that real growth is less of me and more of Jesus.
Yes, I am growing in my awareness of my divided heart as well! Bringing me more and more to my knees each day. Growing older, I’ve found, is more about letting go than about learning to “do”.
Yours words ring so true to me. Rushing of to work I will think about your post today!
