Five Minute Friday: Imagine

Once again joining in for Five Minute Friday. This week's word is "imagine."

What did you imagine your life would look like at this point? What were the childhood dreams you had?

Does your life today look like what you imagined? How is it different?

When I was a kid, I imagined that my life at this point would look very different than it does. But I choose not to get upset over that. I choose to look for the good. And then I don't stop imagining what things could look like in the future. Whether what I imagine is what happens or not.

If we stop allowing ourselves to imagine, our life begins to shrink. We just start surviving and making it through each day. When we allow ourselves to imagine, life becomes exciting. We see the possibilities of what could be. Life is not about surviving - it's about living.

What about you? What are you imagining your life could look like in the future? Even if those things don't happen, don't let them stop you from imagining.


  1. It's so important that we keep imagining our lives as God would have them be. We can't see that far into the future, but we can trust the One who knows the end from the beginning. Blessings!

    1. Definitely. Thanks for the comment.
