The Five Minute Friday prompt for this week is the word only. I have thought about it on and off this weekend, but could not seem to write. Finally, this afternoon as I was pondering the word I thought about how God is the only one who has created something out of nothing.
Only God can create out of nothing.
This world we live in was created by him. He spoke and light appeared. People were created by him.
God Gives us Talents and Abilities
We can create on a smaller scale but never out of nothing. We use our minds to form ideas. Our imaginations help us to begin to carry out those ideas.
Using words we write stories, poems, letters, books and so much more. We build structures, make gardens, bake cakes, design clothes, paint pictures.
There is almost no end to the ideas a person can imagine.
God Created Only One You
Sometimes we may wish we could duplicate ourselves in order to accomplish more in a limited time.
But if we stopped to think about that, would we really want it? We have only 24 hours in a day, and some of that is for sleeping. Maybe we are trying to do too much. Instead of wishing for more time or the ability to clone ourselves, maybe we should stop to think about our lives. Is there something we could change or rearrange?
We only have this one life to live.
Sometimes stopping for a few minutes to pause, look around and be grateful can be all we need to refocus.
Rather than rush through all the days, we can try to be fully present each moment. Each of us has a unique story.
Let’s seek to tell those stories using whatever creative means we can find.
