5 Minute Friday- Risk

Five Minute Friday


I have never been a risk taking person. Ever. I like my "comfort" and my "plans". I felt safe in those things, even though I know I shouldn't. I was good at telling myself that although I needed this stuff in order to feel secure, my security came in Christ. I lied to myself. 
Something has changed in me, and my heart and the things I saw as risky before are no longer. Living in Christ should be risky, and it should look completely foolish to others. It's Biblical. Where have we missed that? How did we get sucked into this "American Dream" and think we could play both sides of the field? 
We can't. We either choose to jump and take a risk or two or spend our lives taking risks, or we stay comfortable planning our every move, leaving no room for HIM to move us. 
I'm diving in. I'm not going to wish I had taken more risks for Him because I'm going to do it. Whatever IT is....

Head over here and link up for your own 5 Minute Friday


  1. Yes to all of the above. Thanks for posting.

  2. Thanks for sharing! I love what you said, "It's Biblical." It's hard to live different from the world, but how rewarding it is!

  3. Love this. Love you. With this new perspective you've got - does it make more sense that I've struggled with as many cultural differences as I have? Just wonderin'.

  4. Amen, I love this topic, so many of us are being called higher! May the Lord FILL us with boldness and courage for doing His will!

    Bless you sister! :)

  5. Love it. We do get so sucked into our security, but don't think life following Jesus looks that comfortable and safe.

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work ! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care! When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better! Face Lift Line I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job. They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!! Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
